I left a pork roast in my crock pot for a little less than 2 hours, but forgot to turn crock pot on. It still felt cool to the touch. Is it safe to eat?
When these things happen (and you're still within 2 hrs), you want to get everything heated up as quickly as possible, so it's out of the food danger zone.
See my notes at the bottom of an answer on prepping things the night before on heating things up faster.
