To use out of date lamb?

I planned to make a curry tonight. I've just checked the lamb and it went out of date on Friday. It looks ok, and I will do the sniff test when I open it.

I'll be cooking it for about two hours. It'll be fine, won't it? Or am I dooming us to a half term of food poisoning?

I cooked beef that was two days out of date the other night and we were fine...

If it looks, smells and tastes fine, it's fine. Enjoy your curry!

I'd go with how it smells and looks. I've thrown out meat that was IN date but smelled off. I wouldn't chance it with chicken but I think lamb would be fine.

I'd do it, lamb or beef a couple of days over, especially with long slow cooking like a curry, will be fine.
I made a nice beef one last week with beef that was 3 days over and I'm still here to tell the tale.
