I was about to cook beefsteak (filipino style) for lunch when I found out that the beef I bought from the market 5 days ago was already spoiled. It was in the fridge with an adequate temperature (i think soo) the whole time I got it from the market. I don’t know why it get spoiled. According to a chef in a magazine (I forgot his name) it is safe to store meat in the fridge up to two weeks. Still I don’t know why it get spoiled in less than a week.
The meat was that of green color instead of red cherry and has an off smell and that clearly indicates spoilage. Immediately it landed in the trash bin. This is such a taunter as it happen while I’m in a hurdle of budgeting; a half kilo of beef has been wasted and there’s nothing I can do about it. I guess to avoid such wastage we need to consume meat that are stored in the fridge for 3-4 days.
