So I cooked a roast beef in the oven yesterday. I cooked it quite rare and I've got about 1 lb left. This should be enough to make some glorious sandwiches, but I'm wondering how long this thing will keep in the fridge? My gut tells me that I should be able to finish it within a couple of days, but I've never really kept any leftover meat cooked rare before, what say you?

At least a week. I speak from experience.

 I think it starts to decline after 3 days - if you're gonna warm the meat up first, I'd say you could safely go for 5 days without shitting your brains out

 Keep it in the cold part, the one for meat.  I'd go until it looked/smelled like it was time to get rid of it myself, but I eat stuff that falls on the floor too with blatant disregard for the 5 second rule.

You are worried about keeping a pound of roast beef? Two sandwiches, breakfast and lunch.

Well that's basically what happened, but it's good to hear that rare meat will keep for a few days at least, thank's guys.

Yeah, I find the first two days are fine, the third day tolerable and after that it just starts to go off.
