A chunk of meat rubbed using the right spices and cooked under the right temperature will taste amazing, but more importantly, it will be safe to eat. Surely enough, you'll waste money on overcooked food, but do you know that you'll be risking your health and quite possibly your life if the food you eat is undercooked? That's because raw meat carries numerous bacteria like E.coli. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, uncooked meat is one of the top causes of foodborne diseases. The bacteria E.Coli can cause hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially life-threatening condition that affects both children and adults.
It’s Important to Cook Food to Proper Temperature
While it's essential to get the spices and the herbs right to ensure that your meat tastes good, cooking meat under the right temperature has more gravity because it will save you thousands of dollars in medical expenses. When your food is cooked right, you will be safe from disease-causing bacteria. One way of ensuring that your meat is cooked correctly is by using a thermapen.
