Are you concerned about meats and its potential to harbor parasites?

even if meat is fully cooked, you would still be eating dead parasites right? heck some might even still be alive, or its eggs might have survived. the quality of meat (pork beef chicken fish) i think has been severe degraded compared to what it used to be. chicken and beef products are neglected and treated with no care during preparation and slaughter, and fish are over fished to the point where company’s are now having to group fish within a artificial farm within the sea/ocean which encourages parasitic outbreaks.
i think meat nowadays isn’t being treated with respect whatsoever and cutting corners are leading to the degradation of the quality

Parasites are not found in beef and chicken. Trichinosis is a parasite found in pork. However, there has not been a case of someone in the US getting trichinosis in years. If you go overseas, just make sure you don’t eat undercooked pork, because trichinosis is quite common in third world countries.

Sashimi grade fish used to make "raw fish" sushi has been flash frozen to kill any parasites or eggs. Eating sushi is very safe because of these regulations. However, in others counties, sashimi grade fish may not have been frozen.

Parasites can be eliminated by properly cooking pork and fish. Cooking fish and pork to a minimum of 145 F for fifteen seconds will kill any eggs or parasites.

So, sure, eating fully cooked meat that had parasites in it means that you are eating dead parasites. They usually won’t hurt you, although some people will have an allergic reaction if they eat cooked parasites found in fish.

I think the fact that trichinosis has been eliminated in the US just goes to show how much food safety in the US has improved over the years. I totally disagree with your statement. New improvements and advancements are being made in food safety and sanitation all the time. There was once a time that food was not being inspected at all. A man by the name of Upton Sinclair wrote a book called the "Jungle". The book is about the meat packing plants of Chicago in the early 1900′s. The reason that the US has the FDA and USDA is because of this book. If you want to read some really gross stuff about meat, then read that book. I think the meat industry has made great strides in keeping our food safe.

How do i roast a prime silverside beef joint its 0.980kg?

Never done a roast before! I’m doing slimming world so bought and thought i would roast it and make salads out of it for the next couple of red days on the diet plan. How do i roast it? My oven is the crappest, slowest oven in the world.
Do i have to do anything to it, like marinate it or something

Silverside is normally boiled or done in a slow cooker, it is one of the toughest cuts of beef.
My suggestion would be:
Place your silverside in pan or slowcooker
2 tsps mustard
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tbsp sugar
2 bay leaves
1 onion peeled and halved
Cover with water
Simmer slowly until cooked (should be floating)
Approx 2 hours, if roasted could turn out leathery.

I would substitute the sugar for sweetex or similar

What You’ll Need:

Skinny Spinach Dip (3-4 servings)

6-7 oz of fresh spinach (can also use frozen)

1/3 cup of fat free Greek yogurt

1 clove of garlic (finely sliced)

2 minced green onions

1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan

1/2 cup of skim shredded mozzarella

pepper or red chili flakes

 

What to do:

If using frozen spinach, totally thaw out your spinach and  squeeze as much liquid out as you can. Make sure to press between a couple paper towels to remove as much moisture as you can.

Now, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 4×4 dish with some non-stick cooking spray. Get a med bowl and combine together all the ingredients, making sure to mix them well.  Put your mix in the baking dish and bake it for 25-30 min. You’ll want the dip to be bubbling and have the cheese starting to brown around the edges.

Serve it hot with chips or on top of your favorite quality meat! Enjoy!
