All the information comes from Danish Meat Research Institute in a newly publicised report.
Myth : Rest your meat after cooking it to prevent loss of meat juice FALSE : Stress to the animal during the butchering and how you cook the meat are the deciding factors.
Myth: don't add salt before frying meat. FALSE: Makes no difference, actually pork chops will be more tender and juicier if sprinkled with a pinch of salt on both sides 15 minutes before frying.
Myth: Frying on a dry skillet reduces fat intake FALSE: using oil or butter on your skillet will add 0.035 oz fat per 3.5 oz meat
Myth: leaving the fat on the meat when frying it will add to the taste. FALSE: the meat tastes the same with or without the fat.
Myth: resting sausage meat in the fridge will make it juicer FALSE: it makes no difference. However if you are using spices it may have an effect on the taste if you let it rest
Myth: Start frying your meat on high to seal the meat juices inside. FALSE: it has the opposite effect, heat makes the meat fibres contracts and this will squeeze the juice out.
