IS MY RAGU SAFE TO EAT?

I made a large pot of ragu yesterday with 1.5 kg beef, onions, tomatoes, herbs etc. but when I added some home-made chicken stock from the fridge I realised it smelt a bit strange. I had boiled it up on Monday from our Sunday roast and didn't realised it smelt odd until I had added about half a jug full (around 300ml). I then brought it the ragu to the boil and cooked for 2 hours. I'm now worried the batch made for my mum's freezer might make her ill. I'm loathe to throw it all away, but is it a silly risk to eat it? Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

I would be more worried about whether it smelled or tasted odd than if it was safe. If you have boiled it thoroughly it will be safe.

Just read your post again. If you boiled it on Monday and today is Thursday and it has been in the fridge it will be absolutely fine. You will not poison anybody.
