Is "Meat is eaten with potatoes" an alternative, or does "το κρέας" mean some specific meat is being referred to?

Yes, both "the meat" or "meat" are correct since there is no context to tell us if it is specific or general.

Can you also say, "is being eaten" for "τρώγεται"?

    Yes! (I don't know if it has been included in the correct answers, but it is a correct translation.)

    The meat is eaten with fries was marked as incorrect

      Fries are fried potatoes, but "potatoes" could refer to potatoes that have been cooked in a different way (e.g. baked or boiled).

      Would 'το κρέας είναι τρώγεται με πατάτες' be correct?
