Pretty simple. How do you like your meat to be cooked?

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).

Medium rare for steak, medium/medium-well for burgers, and medium well for tuna steaks. Say what you will about the tuna, if I want sushi I'll order sushi.

WTF is blue rare?

Seared, Blue rare or very rare — Cooked very quickly; the outside is seared, but the inside is usually cool and barely cooked. The steak will be red on the inside and barely warmed. Sometimes asked for as "blood rare" or "bloody as hell". In the United States, this is also sometimes referred to as 'Black and Blue' or 'Pittsburgh Rare'. It is common for chefs to place the steak in an oven to warm the inside of the steak. This method generally means 'blue' steaks take longer to prepare than any other steak degree, as these require additional warming time prior to cooking.

Oh.

See, I thought that's what "normal" rare meant.

Actually, "black and blue" and "Pittsburgh" refer to a steak that is charred on the outside but blue in the middle.


For me, wipe its ass, shave off its horns, and walk it through the kitchen.

wiki said that,  :rollin

I'll go with my ten plus years in steakhouses.

Well, it doesn't take a 10+ year chef to correct a vegetarian about meat.

I just copied the wiki stuff, I had never heard of half of this stuff and I've never had steak.

This was posted in the last thread. I think it's a good guide.



I get medium rare.

lonestar

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.

If there only was a way to cut a steak off a living cow and put it on my plate just as the blood drains out of it and have the cow watch me eat. :metal :heart :metal
