Hi! Need some help asap.. I just opened some wet aged sirloins and they had a filmy wet surface. Didn't smell bad but it was a bit slimy. Is this normal? Thanks!!!!

    Yeah... It's a protein thing---- usually...

    I give it a quick rinse, pat dry, get some salt on it, and toss it on the heat...

    As long as it smells decent it'll be good...

    I even prefer the wet aged beef that I buy in the vac sealed bags (usually Skirt) when it begins to smell 'just a touch' gamey...

    It enhances the beef flavor to me...
