I bought some of this packaged organic ground beef
It was in the fridge for 3 days, and when I went to open it, it smelt a bit rancid. There was no discoloration, still pink, no grey or green, and it cooked well.
I cooked 1/4 of it all the way through as a patty, cut in half, padded off the grease and had it with tortillas and cheese.
Was it actually bad? Im worrying it smelt, well, dated.
I'm kinda starting to sweat now that I finished but I think thats a mix of being worried and full.
Anons, please gibbe advice.

So I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in culinary, and a local restaraunt agreed to take me on as a trainee. It turns out though that I'm really not as good at this as I thought. I somehow manage to fuck up even the simplest of tasks, and the few that I don't it takes me years to complete. Today I was so fucking incompetent and slow that one of the line cooks asked me sarcastically "are you SURE that you want to be a chef?" with a smirk on his face. Is this normal for a newbie of a few weeks, am I just overreacting, or is this actually a sign that maybe it isn't the career path for me? I really want to cook, and I really enjoy it, but I've already spent many years chasing dreams that I suck at simply out of a naive presumption that if I just didn't give up I'd somehow become good at it...
