Meat Temperatures

Meat temperatures are very important for flavor and safety.  The last thing you want is your boyfriend not liking the meal because the meat is overcooked or undercooked.  To make sure it’s cooked just right follow these simple instructions.
1.       After cooked, place the cooked meat on a plate or board.
2.       Stick the thermometer into the center of the meat and make sure the temperature is consistent with what’s listed below.  (note: for you vegans out there, different types of meat need to be cooked to different temperatures.)
If the cooking temperature is right, you can be confident your boyfriend will be very pleased with his meal.
