A few things I would like you to do:


1.   What temperature is the safe cooking temperature for ground beef? (According to Canadian standards!)

2.   If you were using garlic powder instead of garlic cloves, how much powder should you use?

3.   What kitchen equipment do you require to make this recipe?
