    I have two sweet T-Bones that browned in a couple spots. Is it spoiled?

    Does it smell OK? That's the only way I can ever tell if meats bad.

    As soon as steaks are cut and exposed to air the browning will start. Even if both sides get a brownish tinge they will be fine. Ground beef would be another story though!

    +1 Should be fine if it is just starting. You notice this a lot with hamburger. I eat it as long as it passes the sniff test. :eat:

    it'll start getting a little slimy when it's no good, too.

    I heard -many many years ago now- that if you're unsure that you should offer the meat to a dog, because they won't eat it if it's bad.

    But then, if they eat it, it's eaten, so I never tried it personally....
