I accidentally dropped my steak in soapy dish water for a couple of seconds then rinsed it off and now I'm marinating it. Will it be safe to eat?
I audit meat plants in the US and there is actually a thing called a meat wash sink. Red meat can legally be picked up off the floor and washed in a sink, but not with soap. I am agreeing this is pretty disgusting, but it is the case. I have done a similar thing and been fine, but do not do this in a restaurant please, it is not OK there. As long as you remove the soap you're fine, but if the water had old food or other items, then, well, that is not the best idea.
