Leaving Good Cooking Into the Sabbath

Question: Is it permissible to put raw meat in the oven just prior to the Sabbath on an automatic setting that turns the oven off automatically and then eat the meat Friday night? Also, is it permissible to begin cooking a Cholent (traditional Shabbos Stew) with raw meat just prior to the Sabbath in order to eat it during the daytime of Shabbat?

Answer: Thank you for your questions. In both cases that you mention, if the oven controls would be covered in a way in which a person will be reminded not to adjust the fire on Shabbat, this would be allowed.

Take care,
Rabbi Aaron Tendler
