When in doubt, rely on your nose; it generally won't lead you astray. Just like milk, beef is something that you know is bad if you can give it a nice whiff. Smell it and you're unsure? Then it's probably okay. Again, you'll know.

If the meat has started to turn colors then you better not eat it I would say. I am very strange when it comes to eating meat. It has to be extremely fresh. Almost still talking fresh. :)

Food-transmitted diseases such as E-coli or salmonella are responsible for millions of cases of intoxication every year. The majority of these cases are the result of eating meat that has gone bad. It's fundamental to store meat correctly, as the possibility of getting ill due to food-transmitted diseases increase substantially the older the meat is. Knowing how to tell if meat bad can avoid experimenting the awful effects of food poisoning.

Touch the surface of the steak. A steak that has spoiled will have a slimy texture. This slime is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria, and is a sign the meat has gone bad.
