>> Okay, I admit it, I always go and check out the "mark down" or "reduced for quick sale" meat at the end of the meat case. I almost always buy out of date beef. It doesn't hurt beef if it's a little dark. <<

It depends on how out of date. Sometimes it's only "almost" out of date and hasn't turned brownish yet, and it's still half-price. Those are jackpot days -- though when I find that stuff, I make sure to use it within the next day or two.

I don't really want to approach the stuff that's a couple days past its date and is all brown all over the place. I'm not that LBYM, alas.
