    When I was a kid, they had that whole mad cow scare and it really freaked my mom out. Anytime we went out anywhere, or cooked meat at home, I always ended up getting a hockey puck because my mom insisted on well done to the point where it was practically all charcoal. Now when I order a steak or a hamburger, I usually get it medium or medium well. I don’t want it bleeding all over me, but I want to at least taste the meat.

    A lot of it depends on the cut of meat. Some meat is better rare, some is better medium.

    Medium for sure. Not just eating carbon but also not mooing.

    Well done to very well done – I like the meat completely cooked, not pink!

    @Westitude:  I’ve never had or even heard of steak tartare! Now I want to go try it!

    I like mine med-rare.. closer to the rare side. But I like my burgers well done since it’s ground beef.

    I don’t always eat steak.

    But when I do, I prefer medium rare.

    it depends on the cut – Prime rib or filet? Medium Rare. Anything else is usually medium, unless it’s a really nice steakhouse (in which case, why am I not ordering prime rib or a filet?). I always order hamburgers medium, though.

    @iheartnerds:  I really hope that was a dos equis reference, because that’s what I took it as and it made me laugh. 🙂

    Medium well, leaning towards well and it must be VERY lean. I am texture eater and up until a year or so ago was a vegetarian so my Darling Husband has to cut all the fat off my steak before I can even look at it and it must be a cut without a bone. I am clueless with regards to cuts so when I see a steak on the menu I have to ask “does that come with bones in it?” My Darling Husband gets a kick out of it.
