I bought a potroast last Tuesday with a sell-by date of Friday. I want to cook it today. It smells meaty but doesn't smell off - if that makes sense.
Ok. It's in the oven. Smells divine. I hope this won't be my last post.... ;-)
even if there is a little bacteria on it (which there would be regardless) the long cooking time will kill anything.
As long as it still passes the smell test and the appearance test, I would say go ahead and use it.
The "sell by" date is not the same as a "use by" date.
Exactly. Cook that post roast up and enjoy it.
