Hi. I bought a large chunk of short loin cheap because it was "nearing the best before date", wich only demonstrates that local supermarket staff being totally ignorant about the foods they are selling can be a good ting. We have a good deal left, even after a large steak dinner, two rounds of Pho.
I recall reading something about storing raw meat in rice or cereal, but googling that just gives me several pages of baby food recipes.
Anyone here that have any experience on the subject? Will this prevent the meat from going bad or drying out, or is it just a relict from the pre/refridgerator era?
I'm currently storing it wrapped in linen cloth, but the cut tends to dry out around the edges.
