comment Fat contents from different types of ground beef when drained
Depends on what you like... I personally don't like 70/30 for burgers. But nor do I like a fatty rib eye. I prefer a leaner cut. And, also, for my answer above, I meant a fattier ground beef but drained... Edit added.

comment Fat contents from different types of ground beef when drained
I agree - I always drain my ground beef after cooking but only tried rinsing it when I was young. I quickly stopped because it didn't help whatsoever. Just drain and, if necessary, push against the strainer with large spoon to remove extra fat.

comment how to grind pistachio nuts so that they stay dry
I have used a food processor. A mortar and pestle may be something to try as well.

comment How do you prepare a steak to be rare and very rare (blue)?
Good answer but two minutes per side can easily cook a medium size steak too much for rare. I recommend using a technique to test for rare: cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/2788/…

comment Is there a non-penetrative method for checking cake doneness?
As is the case for all eye-ball recommendations, you need to use complimentary methods. That is why I mentioned the time point. But yes, this is definitely an estimate and should be used as a supplement to other methods.
