How can you tell if your meat is cooked without hacking it to tiny pieces? Since consuming raw or undercooked food is dangerous and can expose you to foodborne illnesses, you should err on the side of caution. You don’t want to hack your nice cuts apart, and if you just cut into the thickest piece of meat you’re cooking, the thinner ones will be overdone by the time that one’s ready. You can’t always discern if meat is cooked properly by only looking at it, although visual cues for doneness can help you make that determination.
The next time you serve up some hearty protein for dinner, try out these two important go-to methods to help you avoid eating anything undercooked. Enjoy your dish safely and keep that glorious mealtime Insta shot intact every time.
