How long after you purchased. Was it frozen? Was it from the butcher or supermarket?

If your fridge is super cold like mine it would have taken two days to defrost, so it would have been thawed yesterday.
Mmm nah not mince, steak I would but mince is dodgy at the best of times.

Depends on when it was frozen. I would use it if it was frozen they day it was bought with a few days until its used by.
