Marinated chuck roast 2 days instead of 1...

Is it ruined/not worth cooking? Is it fine? What can I expect?

Marinade: red wine (shirrah - all I had handy lol) and a bunch of herbs/spices. Was in the fridge for approx 48 hours instead of 24.

aah, go for it, sheriff. As long as it's been in the fridge it should be fine.

USDA says "Marinate beef in the refrigerator up to 5 days."

I have seen some beef bourgoinon recipes that call for marinating for more than a day. I bet it'll be fine.

Have often marinated beef, chicken, you name it for more than a day.

Love to make a three day marinated sauerbraten. Will sometimes use a chuck roast for this (generally use what cut is on sale).

Never had a problem.

You'll have a mighty tender piece of steak, let's just put it that way. I'd throw it on the grill and enjoy!
