I bought some beef ribs today, the "Sell By" date is tomorrow. They look red and normal, but they smell "off". If I cook them thoroughly will that kill any germs present and make the ribs safe to eat? I hate to chuck all these ribs if simple cooking will make them safe to eat.
But at the same time I don't want to risk getting people sick. So ... will cooking make them safe? or should I pitch them?
