Dh took diced mutton out of the freezer Saturday night and put it in the fridge. Sunday morning it hadn't fully defrosted, so I couldn't cook it in the slow cooker as planned. We got back late Sunday night, forgot to put it in the slow cooker asap.
My question is, can I still cook it today? (Monday) It does smell slightly whiffy, but is farmers market mutton, so I don't know if it should smell slightly gamey???
I'm not that enthusiastic, but I know dh will be annoyed if we waste it... Wise MNers, WWYD?
Do you mean it's been in the fridge all this time? If so I would think almost certainly the gamey smell is because it's mutton, not because it's off. When I've had it it has certainly smelt a lot stronger than lamb would.
