Medium Well is the only way I'll ever eat a cow. I appreciate the brutality of it being bloody, but I need my food to be thoroughly cooked. It's more of a mental block.

Shaken, not stirred.

If I can't get it that way, I ask for medium rare.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Rare.

This is a multiple choice question, where there is only one correct answer.

Just asked my boss. and he agreed, also adding that the "blue" should be spelt "bleu", the french word for rare.

The above diagram is pretty good, though my mediums are a touch rarer than that.

Awesome, I did not know that.  I thought that it was called "blue" because it's still cool, and the color blue is often associated with coolness (just as red is associated with heat).

That's probably why the French use that term for rare; bleu is French for the color blue.

And btw they also use the term "saignant" for rare, as it is their term for bloody.

Rare for me. I've tried "Beef Sashimi" once.. but I don't know if it actually calls for being "Blue Rare" though it was pretty tasty and completely raw. I don't trust cooking the meat Rare at home myself.. so I have it medium rare.. but if I have steak at a restaurant then I order rare.

Medium rare ftw. It's my humble belief that the deliciousness of a burger/steak is directly proportional to the number of napkins required while eating it.

That's right. I think in France they say ''bleu'', but here in Quebec we say ''saignant''.
Jesus Christ himself* comes down amidst a choir of 2 billion angels singing Handel's Hallelujah chorus. As KrotchRaut shred randomly on guitars made of dragon bones using picks made from God's kidney stones, Jesus heals a blind woman who promptly gives birth onstage to a creation of pure light.

For me, it's mostly about the texture.  I like meat toward the rare side because it tends to lose flavor and get dried out as it's cooked, but it has to be cooked enough to have that "cooked" texture to it.  If it's still raw in the middle, it's still kinda chewy and stringy, which I don't like.  Obviously there are some cuts of meat that are really tender regardless, but I'm talking about a sirloin, ribeye or other everyday steak, not freakin' filet mignon.

If I cut into it and find I have to saw through it while holding it down with my fork, it's not cooked enough.

Personally, I like Medium Well. I'm definitely not a fan of pink in the middle of my steak (but I won't make a fuss if there is a little bit).
