Medium +...don't want it dark red and bloody, but a medium pink, with clear juices!

Medium or Medium Well, depends on the moment or how previous steaks turned out on previous occasions at a restaurant.

Default Absolutely no moo

Well - always. I eat a filet mignon about twice a year and I always have to send it back because it is pink when I cut it open, despite it being butterflied.

Medium-Rare! Only way to eat a steak. Portofino in RCCL knows how to do it right.

always medium rare on the ships as they tend to be slightly overdone outside of the specialty restaurants.

Medium-rare to medium. Well-done steak is a travesty.

Rare! Unless it's beef carpaccio with arugula and shaved parmesan, then of course, raw.

Default Extra Well Done

Extra Well Done. Cooked throughout. If you know how to prepare it you can keep it juicy and tender and not rough like shoe leather.

As long as it's warm in the middle, it's good enough. I like my rare warm. Only thing that beats that is to have it tailgating at a Bronco (as in Boise State Broncos) game. Go Orange and Blue.
