NEED ADVICE ASAP about meat left out

Lynndsey Rigberg | Apr 16, 2010 06:07 PM

Chowhound Chefs,

This morning at 8:30AM I marinated two flank steaks. I left for work...and when I got home at 6pm, I found that I had left them outside of the fridge! They were sitting in the sink in the zip lock bags I had marinated them in, and the house temperature has been about 64-65 F.

Would you still cook and eat this? I would hate to waste 35 bucks of meat, but I also don't want food poisoning!

Thanks for advice!
