Once the meat is fully thawed and at room temperature the max is four hours. Because the meat is frozen you have alittle extra time while it thaws. It is hard to tell when the meat has reached room temp so it's best to thaw it in the refridgerator.

No longer than an hour or so if left out in room temp. Bacteria can start to grow on foods in an hour. Our stomach acids can kill some of these bacteria but not all. Foo…ds should be kept out of the danger zone which is above 45 degrees and below 145 degrees. In this zone foods are perfect for bacteria.
It will keep for 3 days in there. It will keep longer in the freezer. Up to 3 months.
unthaw meat can stay in the fridge for no more then 2 days because after that it's considered unsafe to eat... cooked meat can stay out in room temp for no more then 4 hours a…fter that bacteria starts to grow which cause sickness if the meat is eaten
Meats do not last long in the refrigerator. Only about 3 to 4 days if it is raw. Then 1 to 2 days longer if cooked and placed in an airtight container. You should always… cover meats when stored in the fridge.
Meat can be unrefrigerated for no longer than 2 hours, or - if the ambient temperature is quite warm - no more than an hour. Less time is better.
Two hours. As a general guideline, pretty much anything refrigerated has a throw-out time of 2 hours at room temperature.
Plan on using it within 3 to 5 days.
for about a week
3 - 4 days but must be sealed in a container or zippered bag. We have had some stay in fridge for 5-6 days by using a vacuum seal system.
Up to 10 days
I wouldn't leave it more than a week and that's on the edge, to be safe don't leave it more than about 4 days.
I let a steak defrost in the fridge (although ours is fairly cold) and the steak lasted 10 days.
This depends on how it was stored in the first place. Is it in the original wrapping? Was it vacuum packed. "Freezer burn" is dehydration from sublimation. It does not make… the meat bad but the flavor and texture will be different. Marinating helps that. Rewrapped and double wrapped beef/pork/chicken will last 4-12 months frozen.
Once opened, tomato-based sauces are only good for five days to a week. You don't want to wait for the mold to form. It is only recommended for 5 days to be safe.
