Default Do you think this pork is ok?

Ok I pulled out a pork tenderloin out of the freezer and the use by date was March 10th. I opened it and it didn't smell bad but was a little slimy feeling. Do you think it would be alright to cook and eat?

How you get a slimy feeling on a frozen food? or you defrosted it already??
If you got it frozen all the time, the expiration date does not matter anymore.

That slimy feeling was probably the fat. I am sure it will taste just fine

Whenever meat feels slimy to me I give it a good scrub with just plain water. It gets the slime off and then I cook and eat it.

It was awesome. Let it simmer in a vinegar based sauce and it tasted great.

My Fatherinlaw just defrosted and ate a pack of hotdogs that expired in 2009 last time I was over there. I think you're fine.
