    How many of you shop the "recycled meat bin" at the grocery store. I love it. Great meat and 25% off or more what a deal!!!

    I do especially for steaks--won't buy pork in it though. my dad said the best steak place he ever ate at had em hangin behind the cashier and they was covered in mold and you picked the one you wanted. HE was a doctor. LOL

    If I eat a steak, 99% of the time, it's out of date. I like it BETTER after it begins to oxidize. Don't think I could do mold unless it was aged within specific climate control parameters, and the mold was superficial, and only on the outside of the primal cut before it gets cut into steaks, but brown beef is just fine with me. I'm a meat cutter (for those that don't know), so I can get some sweet deals on some old beef.

    Pork is a different story. It will get a green ring around it, or a green tinge, and the bone turns black. I don't know if it will hurt you, but I don't take my chances with it. Pork is cheap enough to eat fresh (when on sale).

    I do that as long as theres a butcher behind the counter. I bought some 400.00$ worth of supposedly fresh steaks from walmart and froze them ,upon thawing they turned green and stunk to high heaven. I dont buy from walmart anymore . I found out they thaw thier meat and sell it as fresh . .Its ok if ya cook it ,but not if you are buying and refreezing.

    that's the way to do it if you can, but not everybody lives where they can raise their own

    Reload, I 've seen tons of meat at WalMart that in the "fresh" but still frozen or had ice on it so I know what you say is absolutely true.
