    And... You, and the fool who told you this are both completely stupid. The steak, and chicken have to reach an internal temperature of at least 165, whether or not it is browned. Same for steak. Regardless you'll have a medium rare piece of meat, however the main difference is taste and consistency. Which is why it's widely seen as taboo. Anywho... Don't be a bellend, use a thermostat, and your bloody brain.

    my issue with cups vs grams is that US and UK cups are different (I do have UK cups at home) and while converting it's not so much that the numbers are odd, since most of us will round it off anyway. I can make an estimated judgement about whether that extra or less of the ingredient will matter. It's the conversion between volume and weight. 500g is 500 of anything. Since weight is just adding produce on a scale until it hits that number. But when converting cups to grams it's annoying to do per ingredient, one cup of flour (packed flour? heaped? do you scrape the top or just scoop and hope for the best?) is not the same weight as one cup of sugar. It's so tedious. I do agree that I hate leftover ingredients. It's annoying. But I can't imagine that cooking with cups will remove that either; do they package products by multiplying cups? like one bottle of milk in the US = 10 cups. And then you get to half cups, quarter cups, etc. It seems to be the result can be the same however part of growing as a cook is learning when to give and when to take from ingredients to be effective.

    No wonder box cakes are the way they are, and no wonder I can't eat them - I have lots of food sensitivities, and with all those ingredients it's not a surprise one or more of those ingredients are bad for me.

    I have no problem with converting quantities the first time I cook a recipe to get a feel for it - what really drives me up the wall is when the amount of an ingredient is given in a stupid measurement. How is it practical or even feasible for a homecook to measure a cup of butter? Even the people that the recipe is written for have to consult a volume of specific ingredient to weight conversion chart. The only thing that is clear to any reader is that either the author or editor of the recipe is a bellend.

    So, ive made these a few times and they are very good, but if you make them, id advise salting the water youre boiling them in, makes the interior of the fries just a little bit more flavorful i also love the burnt bits so i cook them extra long and olive oil is much better than a neutral oil for this recipe in my experience. Ive also found them to be crispy for hours, not just minutes after cooking.

    THANK-YOU. If I wanted to taste nothing but chilli and regret I'd simply chew on a raw chilli and be done with it. But I don't, I want the flavours of the food with a background of heat, or as a counterpoint to something rich. There's little conversation with ice cubes in your mouth in a futile attempt at easing the agony.
