How long is homemade soup good for?

I made some minestrone soup and have not a chance to eat it yet. It's in the fridge of course. How long is it good for? It's beef based.

I'm no expert but a couple of days in the fridge will be fine.
I'd start to get concerned getting closer to a week.
In restaurants where I have worked, the rules was always 5 days. If it will be more than that, you should freeze it. Most soups freeze wonderfully.
