also, the package will usually say something to the effect of "use or freeze by:" and a date. if you're before that date, i would say you're most likely good, but by all means, look at it, smell it, poke at it, if anything looks or smells or feels funky, throw it out!
If in a paper wrap package, there is nothing better than your nose to tell you if something has gone bad . . . so give it a whiff. If it is in a vacuum packaging, it should have a shelf life of 28 days from the day it was cut and packaged. Meat in vacuum packaging will have a methane smell to it when first opened, this is normal. It will blow off in a few minutes and the color of the steak will bloom was it hits air.
