Meat left out on the counter a little too long
So yesterday my boyfriends roommate left a steak on the counter to thaw. Usually when I see this I put them into the fridge because, well, thawing on the counter just isn't a good idea. Yesterday, however, I didn't. Then, later that night, I saw the steak (still in wrapper) in the trash! I was wondering if the steak that might just be a little TOO thawed out for a human to eat still be good for the dog? Would I have been able to just throw half of it down for her MM and save the other half for the next nights meal and have it all be okay? Or should I just let the steak go in the trash?
If I remember correctly I saw it out on the counter that morning then, later than same night, in the trash. Is a day's worth of thawing just too much no matter what? If not, how can I tell when it's been sitting out just a little too long, even for Jerzey?
