Does nobody care about trichonosis?

I don't eat a lot of red meat. I even make my spaghetti with diced chicken rather than beef meatballs.

A few months ago, I bought some American chuck roll and made some great steak sandwiches.

I decided to try ham. I don't know why, I just never was into it before.

At E-mart, I checked out the "cooked ham" and all the meat I saw was pink! That's cooked? I don't need it to be well-done, but pigs carry some nasty parasites. Can I at least have it done medium?

So much for that experiment.

Be careful out there.

You ever heard of brown ham?

Ham is pink because of the smoking process. It doesn't mean it's raw. Nonetheless, the ham at E-Mart is likely pink from food coloring.

Woo-hoo! Thanks for humouring me. Also, thanks for reporting GI Korea as a spy.
