half-cooked pernil
I'm cooking a pernil to bring to someone's house for Thanksgiving. I'm planning to go there early, but since their ovens will be busy baking/roasting, I want to half cook the pernil at home and finish cooking it their house. Will this dry up the pernil?
It really is not safe to partially cook meat, stop, then start again. How about taking a roaster and doing it there? It works great and can be plugged in in the garage or on the porch.
Ok, if I cook it all the way and then re-heat it for 1/2hr at a high temp, will it dry up the pernil then?
If I were going to cook all the wayy, I would chill, slice, foil-wrap tightly with some of the juice, then oven bake to reheat, it would reheat just like the turkey in the article on safely reheating turkey on big pots (near the top). It would also be easier to serve and make a handsome platter-
