   Discussion: How do you like your steak cooked?
Geoff · 14 years, 6 months ago
I can't abide bloody meat. Medium well for me, thanks.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
When I first read that I thought you were using bloody as a Britishism and meant that you didn't eat meat at all.
Andrea Krause · 14 years, 6 months ago
I'm somewhere between medium and medium rare. I like it pinker/redder than medium but medium rare is often just too raw for me.

I can't stomach medium well or well. I think it just ruins the taste.
nate... Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
that's because it does. :)

anything past medium is a crime.... or... should be. :D

Starfox Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
I agree. Depends on my mood, but I'm usually on the medium rare side of the fence. Depends on what kind of steakhouse I'm in. If it's a high scale one, I'll go medium rare, if it's a chain store or other middle of the road steak house then I tend to go medium.

Technically speaking, rare is how steak is "supposed" to be prepared. I just can't stand COLD red meat. A couple places here have a level below rare called "blood rare" which is about a minute to a minute an a half searing on each side and then on the plate.

Ugh, no thanks. It's gotta at least be partially cooked through and warm. :)
nate... · 14 years, 6 months ago
like andrea, I'm inbetween.

Usually I order "rare to medium rare", but it depends on the cut.... and on where I'm ordering it. :)
Some places' meat I trust more than others.

That's pretty much the case for all red meats, though.... duck, buffalo, beef...etc.... rare to medium rare.


renita Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
hmm. i've never had duck that wasn't welldone. but most of the duck i've had has been smoked or in chinese food.

so i find duck and goose to be similar meats, would you also cook goose to rare/med rare?
nate... Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
Well, I should clarify that duck BREAST is best grilled rare.... leg meat is best confit. (imo, of course).

Never tried goose that way.... not sure how it would work.

renita Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
huh, i wouldn've thought that duck was more like chicken, in that it should be cooked through.

cool. i'll have to give that a try :)
nate... · 14 years, 6 months ago
in case there's any confusion...

here are some steak cooking guidelines.

Phoenix · 14 years, 6 months ago
saignant svp!
renita · 14 years, 6 months ago
all the way, although from the guidelines nate put up, medium rare is alright.

basically i like it seared on the outside and warmed up throughout and that's good enough for me :)
iPauley · 14 years, 6 months ago
Sear it some on the outside, is really all I need.

lawrence · 14 years, 6 months ago
hold a match under it for a few seconds and that's good enough for me.
Will work for anime · 14 years, 6 months ago
I used to LOVE my steak rare (med rare if i had to) but in the past year or so i've found i can't stomach it. It gives me awful indigestion...so now i have to order it med rare to med. But i agree that it doesn't taste as nice.
Nik Chaikin · 14 years, 6 months ago
Just sorta show it the flame.
nate... Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
"see that flame over there?"

"mooooo"

"okay, you're done. *chomp*"

Mamalissa! Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
That's making a vodka martini and merely acknowledging that the vermouth is in the same room.
Nik Chaikin Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
On M*A*S*H* they just showed the gin a picture of vermouth's inventor.
Paul the KOA · 14 years, 6 months ago
Which is the minimum needed to kill any nasty germs that might still be residing in the steak? I'll go with that one.
Michael (foof) Maki Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
Well...one of the neat things about steak is that the nasty germs will be on the *outside* of the thing... So, as long as it's seared, there's no danger.
Gigi Stoll · 14 years, 6 months ago
"Someones dying"

Grab the steak

In one bit

"Were did your steak go"
Amanda · 14 years, 6 months ago
I like my steak to be done to "post-apocolyptic char"  as my brother would say lol.
lawrence · 14 years, 6 months ago

Andrea Krause Back · 14 years, 6 months ago

lawrence Back · 14 years, 6 months ago
