We have a silverside joint of beef two days out of date do you think it will still be ok to eat? It will be two days out of date tomorrow? I think it proberbly will but am just abit worried.

Open it and smell it, if it smells ok then just make sure it gets cooked all the way through.

You can hang beef for weeks; it will be fine, assuming it has been kept in the fridge.

I would totally eat that. I don't really understand those dates - isn't meat hung for days/weeks anyway before consumption - the good stuff anyway?

I think beef is pretty safe out of date.
