How many days - safe marinading...

I just put a cheap three bone standing rib roast in a marinade of vinegar, worches. sauce, onions, garlic and herbs this afternoon - can I grill or roast it on Saturday evening or should I proceed manana~??

  1. Should be safe in the fridge. After all, any bad things are on the outside and will be eliminated by cooking. But I would not like the flavor of beef lolling around in vinegar that long.

      Small amount of good red wine vinegar - I've found lemon juice tends to 'cook' the meat if it's in contact for more than a couple hours - it's in the fridge!
