Three-week old corned beef?

Uncooked, in the cryovac'd package, with a little brine, in the fridge.

Think it's still okay?

Look on the package and see if there's a "best by" or "use by" date on it. Let that be your guide. Just a guess off my hip, probably is okay. Check the date anyway, though, and make sure the packaging hasn't been breached. If the package isn't fully factory-sealed, you could have a problem. Submerge it in water and see if you detect any leakage, etc.

In cryo, you should be ok. A lil pickled perhaps, but you nose will know.

the whole purpose of corning beef is to preserve it...it's been sealed, kept cool, should be fine. Plus you are going to simmer it for several hours I would think.

I agree with Katie, I always checked dates on everything! (worked in grocery store for almost 16 yrs.) not everything is rotated like they should be.
