In brief: Yes.

Allergy to carbohydrates in beef and pork often present as anaphylaxis four or more hours after the meal.
This is an uncommon presentation for food allergy.

In brief: Yes, but less likely

The rate at which we react to various allergens in in foods can be very rapid, but can be slowed by absorption in the intestines.
