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 to medium. Well-done steak is a travesty.

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

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.
