I'm a medium-rare kinda girl for steak. I even like pink in my burgers, that's where the flavour is...right?

I love a perfectly cooked "medium" filet mignon with some bernaisse and peppercorn sauce on the side (Princess).

If you like your steak cooked like shoe leather that's fine, but stop perpetuating the lie that the juices from a rare steak are blood. There is no blood in your steak.

Medium with just a touch of pink. I won't eat anything that could get well with a bit of proper medical care.

Default How I order my steak

When the waiter asks how I like it cooked, I say Black and Blue. If he or the chef don't understand what that is, I just stick with the pasta.

It's also known as Pittsburgh rare. I usually order steaks that way here, but I do live only a few hours from Pittsburgh.

Post matter of opinion

Medium rare, as per the general guidelines.
BUT, back in the kitchen, what the cook considers medium rare can be variable.
Often, where I live, I have to order rare to get medium rare. At least I can send it back for a little more heat if I have to.
Gripe: the wait staff bring my steak to me and demanding I cut it open right away to see if it is cooked the way I want it. Do I want all the juice to run out of a steak hot from the grill? No.

Yes, we often experience the same thing. I also hate cutting into a steak right away.

Well if the cook was any good then they let the steak rest before it got to you so there is no harm in cutting it open at the table. even if they didn't let it rest it's unlikely that the server picked it up and delivered it to you so quickly that it didn't have a few minutes of resting time.

Default Again.

If the cut is prime? Crusty on the outside (not burned). Rare inside. No sauce. Anything other than salt????? Just bring me a bottle of catsup and a side of fries. Good black and blue with baked potato with butter and sour cream, I am in heaven. Want to have some fun? Just ask the waiter for a bottle of catsup. Might just get the wrath of the chef. I hope so, because I will show him how to grill a steak.

We like our steaks medium well. Just the right shade of pink for us.

No sauces for us - ruins the taste of the steak.

rare to medium rare, beyond that and it's ruined. Good steakhouses will tell you if you want it cooked beyond medium rare they are not responsible for what comes to your table in terms of taste and tenderness.

As long as the meat is warm throughout, it's perfect for me. I will maintain to my dying day that if you like your steak well-done, you do not actually like steak. I will accept medium on my steak, anything past that, and I will be giving the cook the evil eye for ruining my meal.
