I HAVE A SERIOUS QUESTION ABOUT SOME TACOS I AM ABOUT TO EAT
My ground beef was grey, from sitting in the fridge. Didn't smell bad, but maybe a little off? The smell didn't make me wretch, it just smelled like ground beef with a little something else. Maybe boot leather? Anyway, I figured it wasn't too far gone and cooked the fuck out of it. It's been simmering for over an hour, just to be sure.
Now the texture is weird. Like, too soft. I know that if you age a steak, it gets soft because bacteria eat most of the connective tissue, and I guess ground beef could work the same way? Did bacteria eat the structural stability of my ground beef, just enough to make it feel weird?
Basically, I cooked it to death, so all the germs and shit should be dead, right? Will eating this taco make me shit my guts out?

I was a fish-eating-sorta-veggie for most of my life. About 6 months ago, I started to slowly begin liking meat, particulary burgers and lamb. But somehow, I don't seem to like steaks. I mean, I've tried them twice butter-fried by my /b/ro and I just found it slimy, bland and tasteless. Can you help me? Can you help my brother help me?
