    If I am at a really good steakhouse, i’ll get steak medium rare because usually the meat’s really good and I feel like it’s safer to eat less cooked.  For some reason, if I’m at a regular restaurant, I think ordering medium just feels ‘safer’. I know that doesn’t make a lot of sense and is probably a load of crap, but that’s my way of thinking!

    Rare.  100%,  In fact, that’s what I hate the most about pregnancy–no rare meat!

    Darling Husband did prefer his well-done before I met me, but, the first time he met my Mom, she cooked him a rare steak, and he said he was too much of a gentlemen to complain, so he just ate it.

    Then he says, he was never the same again, so now, rare only.

    Slap it twice and serve it up. Steak should be rare or you might as well call it roast, lol, I give my Darling Husband this line every single time he asks me how I want it.

    It’s got to be rare.  Even better, just seared on the outside.  Yum yum yum!  We had roast beef last night, and it was perfectly rare in the middle.  I had the leftovers really thinly sliced in a sandwich with horseradish sauce and tomato for my lunch.  Delish!

    I used to work at Ponderosa, a steak restaurant when I was a teenager, and a punk family of 3 (Mom,  Dad, and I think an 8 year old boy) came to me and ordered all their steaks “blue”. I didn’t know what that was, so I asked the cook,

    He showed me how: slap on the steak on the grill for a few seconds then immediately turn it over for another few seconds then put it on the plate.

    “There” he says with disgust: “It’s blue!”

    But I said to him” But its’ RAW” and he says “yep!”

    That family came, I think, once a week. (They also ordered “swamp water” which the cook also showed me what that was: A little bit of eachpop in one glass so coke, orange, rootbeer, 7-up, ginger-ale, whatever they had in the soda fountain in one glass all mixed up)

    @happyface:  Blue steak’s excellent if the quality of the steak’s really good.  Swamp water on the other hand sounds awful!

    Actually I tried it, and it was not bad, jsut a little bit of each so not one particular soda was overwhelming another,, but I wouldn’t try the blue steak….

    I prefer med-rare. I waited tables at a mid-range steakhouse in college and used to cringe whenever someone ordered a steak well done…followed by a request for steak sauce or extra ketchup. Don’t get me started!

    @clumsylawyer:  I agree.  I don’t mind blue, but I always go for rare just in case it’s rubbish steak.

    Medium.  Medium rare if medium isn’t an option.  Yum, delicious.  😀

    I voted “ew, steak!” even though that’s not really the truth…

    I always loved steak but it gives me massive abdominal pain. Turns out my stomach doesn’t have the right combination of enzymes to be able to digest red meat unless it’s preprocessed for me. So no steak for me.

    Before I stopped eating it, I liked it medium well.
