Q:

Why are there seven hot dogs in a Hebrew National package?

A:

Hebrew National hot dogs come seven to a package because meat has traditionally been sold by weight, specifically by the pound, not by a numerical count. The Hebrew National package of seven hot dogs weighs one pound.

Other Hebrew National products are also sold in packages that weigh one pound. Its "bun-length" hot dogs, which are a little longer than the standard ones, come in a package of six. Its quarter-pound hot dogs come, not surprisingly, in a package of four. Many other brands of hot dogs come eight or ten to a pound. Hebrew National sells all-beef hot dogs which it markets as kosher; however, not all kosher-certifying authorities agree with this assessment.

    How many minutes per pound should beef tenderloin be cooked?

    A:

    The exact cooking time for beef tenderloin depends not only on size but also on the temperature of the oven and the desired level of doneness for the meat; for example, at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, a 2-pound beef tenderloin can be cooked for 35 to 40 minutes for medium rare or 45 to 50 minutes for medium. At this same temperature, larger pieces of meat require longer cooking times, and smaller pieces require shorter cooking times. The meat can also be tested for doneness by inserting a meat thermometer into the meat and determining internal temperature; 135 F is a rough minimum internal temperature for a medium-rare beef tenderloin.
