I believe you are looking in the wrong place for the definition.  My cookbook says, " When meat fibers are blackened and do not retain the sauce".

This "cooked" look crops up with monotonous regularity, but I have yet to see it defined in a comprehensible fashion, or seen a photograph upon which we can all agree is a "cooked look".
Since heat is a satisfactory form of fixation, how can something look cooked?

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has an idea how long small bxs. can remain in the last wax station after the processing is completed. We had a problem with that today and a lot of our bxs look "cooked".  Thanks!
