I've got some beef mince in the fridge. bought it on wednesday. the BB date is today but it's turning brown.
is it still ok?

It's just oxidised. Does it smell?

yes it is still fine as long as doesn't smell.

basically what LL said but wanted to prove that i knew it too.

I'll send my dh round to sniff it for you

I always make him smell meat even if I bought it just that day

drives him insane

It will be fine as long as it smells ok. You will know for sure if it's off

Nothing wrong with a bit of brown or even shades of green on beef as long as it smells ok - darker beef is actually more tender and in the steakhouses in South Africa they never ever cook beef while it is still red.

People are far too precious these days but that's fine by me because I clean up at the 'get it down your neck' section at Sainsburys!
