Guys, you are overthinking this.  This is a classic soft boiled egg (that was then pickled).  Like Cheflayne said, start with boiling water place cold eggs into the water and boil for exactly 6 minutes.  Immediately plunge into an ice bath.
Sorry, I totally missed mustard in your recipe!!!!  I see it now.  Need to stop trying to do 2-3 things at one time!!!
I second using bacon fat.  When I was growing up that was the only way me made popcorn at home.  Yes, it is not the healthiest way to make popcorn, but it didn't need any butter drizzled over top, just a few shakes of salt.  The only reason I don't it this way nowadays is that we don't save our bacon fat like we used to when growing up.  My parents cooked just about everything in bacon fat then.  I'd sleep over at friends' houses and thought their eggs tasted strange...
French Fries, you beat me to the punch with Leeks Vinaigrette, one of my favorite dishes. Although I like to use a little mustard in my vinaigrette when making the dish and garnishing with finely diced tomato and hard boiled egg.
Do you have a steamer on the line?  Reheat it in ramekins with plastic over top.  We used to heat a number of things in our steamer.  I agree with trying to make it a la minute-you won't get the through and through flavor that makes hot potato salad so good.
Annato seed (or Achiote) gives a more orange color (often used to make cheese orange).  It is a Latin American spice used a lot in southern Mexican cooking.  Nice flavor but nothing like saffron at all.  I love saffron, but it can be off-putting if used with too heavy a hand.
Personally, I would just season the steak with salt and pepper as to get a good crust on the steak you will want a really hot pan and that will burn the garlic and rosemary.  Season your steak with salt and pepper.  Heat your pan, preferably cast iron and just brush it with a bit of oil.  Cook your steak as you normally would.  Remove from the pan and allow to rest.  Meanwhile add some chopped garlic to the pan and quickly saute in the remaining oil.  Deglaze the pan with...

If you like onions and peppers this is one of my wife's favorite toppings for  steak, that I make for her regularly.  This makes more than enough for 2-3 people.   1 small onion, peeled and sliced 1 Anaheim Pepper, cut in half, seeds removed and sliced 8 oz. White Mushrooms, sliced 2 cloves  garlic, minced 1/4 cup  Worcestershire sauce 4-6 tablespoons  butter, cut into chunks 1 tablespoon  vegetable oil   Heat a skillet over medium high heat.  Add the oil then...
12 oz. of bacon to feed 2 people?  That's my kind of cooking!!!!!
