My gf has been buying roast beef lunch meat. No complaints, it’s delicious, but why is it always so wet? Other lunch meats are different. Bologna, sliced ham, the underappreciated olive loaf, braunschweiger, are all “normal” compared to roast beef that is wet.
I’m not talking about the birefringence sheen, but rather the moisture that’s present. I’ve tried repackaging it after drying it off with paper towels, but the wetness seems to return.
