Did you eat steak while pregnant if so, did you make sure it was well done?

I LOVE rare steak (steak tartar, steak carpaccio, rare ribeye, yum!!) I have eaten steak only occasionally during my pregnancy so far, but when I have ordered it I have ordered it medium rare. It’s not remotely enjoyable for me otherwise. Bad mommy! I do get hamburgers cooked medium.

My husband is taking me to a brazillian steakhouse this weekend for my birthday and I’m worried about what to get. I think it really depends on the cut of meat you’re getting, since some can be eaten more rare than others without risk of salmonella. I’m probably going to stick with medium/medium-well.

I can’t really do steak during pregnancy, but when I do, I stick with my regular medium rare. I think it just depends on your personal feelings on the risk of listeria and other bacteria.

I think medium well is best for me although Darling Husband always flips out and tries to make me eat it well done. That is never happening haha.

We’re being cautious and cooking all meat till there is no pink.
I do lurve a medium steak though. Sigh. We’re making a dry aged prime rib in a couple weeks and I’ll have to eat that puppy cooked all the way through – wah.

During college I worked in a steakhouse, it was a chain, but they would serve steaks anywhere from med rare to well since the bacteria is on the outside and it can be seared off. We were not allowed to take orders for hamburgers under med well though since hamburger meat is blended so the bacteria could be anywhere.

I always eat my burgers and steaks med rare, but when I’m pregnant I will eat them cooked to at least medium, if not med well. I will feel much more comfortable this way.

I love my steaks, med rare, yet once I’m preggers, medimum it will be.

In the last couple of months Darling Husband and I have decided not to eat beef anymore. But prior to that When I used to eat beef I would always have it well done, regardless of whether I was pregnant or not. I’m just not comfortable eating partially raw meat.

I didn’t realize you couldn’t eat rare steak while you were pregnant. Hmm…well that gets rid of the baby fever I was starting to feel. I don’t smoke and rarely drink, but God do I love me some rare (bloody) steak!

I usually have mine medium-rare to medium, but during pregnancy, I had them well done. I wanted no extra risks.
