In brief: You may not get sick

It depends on the state of meat before you ate.
If the meat was from a healthy animal that was slaughtered and processed hygienically, you may not suffer any ill-effects. If these conditions are not met, illnesses range from gastro-enterititis within hours to parasitic infestations that may take years to express.

solid beef will have all surface bacteria killed--whereas a hamburger is a whole other ballgame.
