    500 grams is about 1 lbs more and less, 454 gram is 1 lbs i agree with kochhexe

    hmm, sounds great - although i do not know what canddlenuts are - can i use cashew instead?
    @jenniferbyrdez: no problem with the grams - using the decimal system, one pound is 500 grams - an 'american pound' is 50 grams less. so, there isn't that much difference to really matter - at least not, when weighing meat.:-)

    This sounds delightful. I don't know grams and such, but I can figure it out on this one from the rest of the ingredients. Very nice recipe. TY.
