comment Can I cook hamburgers in the microwave oven?
I just tried it once. The patties were quite thick, and I might have used full power. Thanks for letting me know that it is indeed possible!

comment What do you call a scrambled omelette?
Thanks for an extensive argument that there's no word for it! I'll wait a bit and see just to make sure that no-one knows a word for it.

comment What do you call a scrambled omelette?
It seems like a Western omelette isn't scrambled, at least from Google Images and Wikipedia: "A Denver omelette, also known as a Southwest omelette or Western omelette, is an omelette filled with diced ham, onions, and green bell peppers, though there are many variations on fillings."

comment Does splitting spaghetti in half change the taste?
Texture, which would change, is part of the taste.

@Bob: I'm having the onions in the sauce. Do you mean that I could fry them before cooking the steak, and then put them back after adding stock to the roux?

I just tried cooling the pan for a minute, and it felt a lot better to melt the butter. Thanks! I'll try @BobMcGee's suggestions next.

Thanks, I'll try these sauces. Why can't I use a roux for the pan sauce? Time?

I have the same problem with cast-iron. Thanks for pointing me to the teflon question, by the way.
