I've just bought some fresh rump steak to make beauf bourguignon in 3 days. Can I keep it in a fridge or do I need to put it in a freezer?
Well, what does the best before date say? It depends on when the cattle was slaughtered, how the meat is packaged (vacuum packaging increases shelf life) and at what temperature it has been and is going to be stored at.
Generally speaking: shouldn't be a problem. Smell it before you cook it of course.
