    Emporium: Selling Rotten australian Meat ?

    I am quite tired of shopping at Emporium, or Food Land or some other "premium" supermarket and buying some nice Australian steak at 1800 THB/kg to find out when I come home that it's actually rotten meat. WTF ??? are these people stupid ???

    This happened to me quite a few time already, throwing 500THB worth of steak almost once a week, as they don't seem to hold more than 1 day or a few hours apparently. Before it was Thai French which went through a phase of price hike and lower quality, and now it's Australian !!! And before that it was Argentina beef in Food Land !!!

    maybe sign of import problems or other financial stress for those Premium Supermarkets ?

    Where do you buy your meat ?

    Thai/French in Sakorn Nakhon. Fresh off the ranch never frozen. Always good because I get to chose exactly the cut I want.

    You got that right, but some good pussy comes from there too, but don't tell m wife I said that.
    She thinks she is the first girl I ever did that with.

    But I buy all of my meat from SFS in BKK and I can take steaks out of the freezer and leave in the meat tray in the fridge for 2 weeks and not a problem with them, as that meat is processed and frozen the day it dies in NZ. and I get it wholesale.

    My wife buys Thai beef steaks from Foodland in Pattaya and to be honest it has been superb of late.

    Yesterday she thought I might like an imported T'Bone steak and it was as tough as an old shoe at about twice the KG price.

    I hope that Foodland Pattaya keep up the good local beef quality.

    You should always be aware and cautious when purchasing foreign/imported 'fresh' consumables here. Best to eat local.....

    Freezing food destroys the integrity and composition of the product.

    Bullshit, better than the way Butterbutt is getting his.
    I would rather have it aged 3 days and be a tender good beef, but I am in asia , Thailand, now and have to take what I can get.
    Just because you can't afford it don't mean I can't eat it.

    I was told that freezing tenderizes beef as it cause the cells to burst. Not sure if it true or not. is that true Blackgang? A caterer told me that.

    Buy a freezer and then buy what you want and have it anytime, and at half the price.

    Not trying to be a smart arse Rural, but the man that told me that was a rich Swiss caterer. He said that freezing caused the cellular structures to expand and burst thereby tenderizing said cut of meet.

    The sad aspect is that you never adjusted nor acclimated, like many, to local cuisines. Need to have that 'Farang diet' fix....not terribly adaptable, are you?

    Rural,

    Most Thais living around the world eat mostly Thai food my friend. Nothing wrong with that. I am never going to "go native". I must have a proper meal now and again.

    Indeed they do. But they can't fool me. I can spot the difference between a dog biscuit and a beef brisket.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of beef at Foodland Pattaya, maybe a good week ?

    I might need to order from Timba wholesaler instead !!! maybe a few KG to put in the freezer

    ^ Yes Timba always seems to serve up terrific steaks, out of this world in fact but as BG says it all in the way that it has been hung, cured and prepared.

    The Thai's are certainly getting better and over the last 5 years.

    It does change the cell structure, whether it tenderizes or not I do not know, but I do not use frozen pork for curing, I do use it for sausage making, and I always freeze fish before brining as it does take the brine better, but here I do not need to worry about it as all the salmon I get are frozen and are good for nothing else but smoking.

    Don't worry about what you eat, some of the nutters come here and want to be a monk, start to Wei everything even their own shadow, very silly that they think it is OK for Thai to go somewhere else and eat the same shit that they eat here but you have to switch to rotten fly blown contaminated shit here.
