I didn't put the lid on the slow cooker (crockpot) properly for first hour of beef stew. It's on high now with the lid on, will it still be safe to eat?

  • You can always use a meat thermometer to ensure the beef is fully cooked if you have any concerns. Commented Nov 24, 2015 at 16:37

It'll probably be fine. An hour isn't very long and I am willing to bet your food was getting hot anyway even if it wasn't getting as hot as quickly for the first hour.
