If its in the fridge and already cooked, it should last a solid week. Depending on how often your fridge is opened (every 10 mins if like mine) and how full it is.

If its uncooked, then expect it to discolour within 2-3 days. Having said that, i have cooked mince that looks ready to be thrown out and had no issues with it.

In my missus fridge it stays fresh for atleast 3 days longer than my own..mainly cos my own is always full and always being opened.

This actually depends on how long you had the uncooked meat in the refrigerator. Typically you can go only about five days before it starts getting slimy. Slime is created from the build up of bacteria on the surface. Bacteria can reproduce very rapidly under the right conditions on the right foods. If you cooked it immediately when you get home six days would be accurate. However, if it sat for three days you only have about three to go. The reason is not that the meat is rotten but that once bacteria has grown on the surface and has contaminated it you cannot cook out the toxins from the bacteria.

Right that's fine, I buy it and cook it straight away, getting 4 servings out it .. so should be fine.

Thanks everyone.
