They sell roast beef in gravy at my local frozen goods store, so I would say yes.

Absolutely yes if you're refrigerating it for five or six days. If you plan on freezing it, use the water displacement method for forcing air out of the freezer zipper bags. You open a small space in the zipped bag and submerge it in water up to the zipper, then close the open space. Water pressure will have forced all of the air out of the bag and you can freeze it in an oxygen free environment.
I package foods using a vacuum pump and sealer system (Food Saver). Same or better result, as the bag is heat sealed, and the air is pumped out.
To learn more about water displacement, search for the method in the Sous Vide section.

Yes it'll be fine. Just don't leave it out any longer than that.
