comment When is it OK to cook a burger medium?
@derobert yep, and the ideal is to dunk them in liquid nitrogen and then deep fry them so the outside is completely browned but the inside remains unaffected. I can but dream...

If you do it for long enough then 55C is fine - especially if your burgers are thin - check the Douglas Baldwin tables if you don't have a copy of Modernist Cusine.

comment Why does my tuna Casserole turn sour?
Completely speculation here but the heat treatment that tinned pineapple undergoes during the canning process denatures certain enzymes, maybe that might have something to do with it?

comment How to make a beef or vegetable broth more dense?
+1 for xanthan gum, it has extraordinary thickening powers and can be used in minute quantities so it won't compromise flavour. I don't think you'd even need to go as high as 1.5%, try half that first.
