Jan - since the meat cooks in the cast-iron there really shouldn't be any live bacteria in the pan when the meat is removed. I never let my cast-iron sit - as soon as I pull food out of it I boil it out with about an inch of water, rinse, put it back on a hot burner and then rub with a little oil. I figure boiling the pan gets it hotter than any other form of cleaning. My hot water tank is set at about 130deg so whether I wash in the sink or the dishwasher it doesn't get boiling hot and neither my dishwasher soap or dish detergent at the sink are anti-bacterial. Or at least that's how I've justified it to myself all these years ...
