Prime Rib question

I got a a couple frozen prime ribs for Christmas and only used one. The other, I took out of the freezer on the 23rd and put it in the refrigerator. I kept meaning to take it out and cook it, but holiday obligations kept coming up, and now I wonder if it's still ok to cook tonight.

The place I bought it said it was good for 5 days in the refrigerator, but is an extra couple days a problem?

Give it a sniff. If it smells, then throw it out. If there is no smell, it might be okay (although it sounds dodgy given that it has been frozen).

Shouldn't it be ok if it's been frozen/refrigerated? That's how beef is "aged" after all.

Of course not, once meat is defrosted it must be cooked in 24 hours.

How do you think they age meat, OP?

Rinse well, pat dry, salt, sear and into the oven.

Yes. It will be fine. It will start losing flavor after day 7 in the fridge, but it will be safe.
