If I cooked with alcohol..... (pregnancy question)

I made cornbeef and cabbage for dinner today and the recipe called for it to be made in the crockpot in 6 ounces of beer....I accidentally used quite alot more then this.....

I'm 24 weeks pregnant, is it safe for me to eat the food that I made or should I eat something else?

  • The alcohol cooks off. It will be perfectly safe for both you and your children.

  • You already got your answer but I will say that I agree with the others. The alcohol cooks off when you use it to cook. It will be fine for you and your children to eat.
