it sounds like your dog has either gastritis or food poisoning and she must see a vet immediately. it may be more expensive, but you should really consider getting her to an emergency vet if your regular vet has already closed for the day.

Get her to the vet as quick as you can. There are so many food-born pathogens it would be unwise to self-treat your dog. Also, not to alarm you but, some of those pathogens can be given to humans. Rottten meat can have a lot of funk in it. If your vet tells you its just a belly-ache at least you know for sure. Hope all goes well for you and your dog.

Meat like that should be buried and not thrown into the waterways. You can foul an entire water supply that way. I would check for a vet about parasites and other nasties that could be transmitted.
