comment How to fix the protein content of my minestrone?
@rumtscho: That had actually never crossed my mind. I was dead-set on eating just a single course for time concerns, but cooking a steak doesn't take much time.

The 154°C factoid comes from Wikipedia, and it might not refer to the pan temperature.

comment What causes a tomato sauce to have a bitterness and getting rid of it?
@Matt: Perhaps you burnt the garlic? That tends to impart bitterness, I've learnt.
