It is from Sainsburys and will be cooked through in a pie. Smells fine but is a bit darker in colour (more like a butcher's steak).

Yes because a butcher's shop would let their beef hang for more than a supermarket - generally. As long as it's not off, that's fine.

Yeah go for it as long as it doesn't smell and is going to be piping hot!

Yes, as long as not green or whiffy

I wouldn't but my husband would. I'm always so careful with meat because of DC.

All your lucky DHs who get all the nice things - if there is steak and I think it is good I want some too.

If I think it is bad I wouldn't give it to anyone.
