Your advice-- should I eat this steak??

Anne H | May 13, 2007 12:03 PM

Yesterday, my husband was gardening in our front yard when a truck came to a screeching halt and two guys jumped out, and offered to sell him frozen steaks. Eventually, after a good bit of haggling, he bought four frozen T-bones for $20.

Should we eat them?

Here's the rest of the info-- they were solidly frozen, look fine, shrink wrapped, in a very professional looking four-color printed box, ie, look just like what you might get when you buy frozen food via your kid's school or some other fundraisng sale.

The truck was similarly professionally painted.

The two guys were decently dressed and looked like entrepreneurial types.

We live in an urban area, and my first thought was that perhaps these steaks had been stolen from somewhere, but I doubt that thieves would drive around in the original truck. My second thought was that it is some kind of thing like door-to-door magazine sales. Steak would be higher margin, and have the element of surprise. And it worked, my husband bought it, eh.

But then you would think it would be on the internet somewhere. Has anyone every heard of a company called Direct USA, or Protein Solution? I can find nothing.

So, I am not asking if you think these will be the best steaks I ever ate-- I doubt it-- only if you would actually eat them, now that they are sittingin the fridge (and assuming that they continue to look good as they thaw and are removed from their shrink wrap.)

Thanks for any thoughts!
