    How do you like your steak?




    Argentinian, but Ocker also suffices.

    I'm with Dave... fark conforming to some ideal - set by food poofs.... eat ya goddam steak how ya like it...

    That being said, I like my steak medium rare (but closer to medium - than rare)... pink in the middle - not dripping blood thanks...

    That Mr. bean skit, reminded me of a family holiday hosted by my mother in Taupo... after a 4 hour drive to our family holiday home - we sit down to a meal of steak tartare (or fucking raw mince, as I like to call it)...

    After a few bites, excused myself from the table and went to cook the mince myself, much to the horror and derision of me mum...

    I don't care.. I like what I like and don't like what I don't like... (somefing like that)...

    I find the premise of the OP amusing (no disrespect inferred SK).

    Since the length of time cooking a steak is a personal choice ... how can anyone's choice be wrong?

    Sure, the culinary epicureans will have a style/cooking time for them, which reflects the best qualities
    of the steak as they see them.

    But to infer that any other choice then theirs is simple food snobbery.

    An aboriginal breaks open a dying tree stump, inside are several whitchy grubs.
    He/she grabs one, bites it's head off and chows down.

    You are offered one and politely decline.

    Go on, try one ... delish is the encouragement.

    Food preferences are about choices.
    .
    Eat the steak how you like it and damm the torpedoes
    Kind of. But you could knock the top off a bottle of red and swig straight from the bottle if you wanted. But the wine sure as hell would improve from decanting and being served at the right temperature in a decent glass.

    If sub-par steak is your thing, go for it but don't try to claim any moral high ground.

    An interesting analogy, since most wine 'experts' aren't even consistent with themselves in their judgements, let alone with each other. In reality, these kinds of things have close to nothing to do with taste and almost everything to do with clambering up to the second rung on the social ladder.

    Medium rare for me, but won't be that upset if it is medium either. Alas, here in Myanmar it is wise to go for well done due to parasites and poor refrigeration. Good steak is always top of the list when I go to BKK.

    I tend to use the beef here for Thai curries cooked slowly.

    So wine is another subject we can add to the list of things you clearly know fuk all about.

    Steak stuffed with oysters. Quite an odd and off-putting sounding name but focking delicious!

    I think I'll stick to the inside of mine containing nothing but raw blood.

    Think I ate that at 7am once whilst still drunk.


    Was still finding the odd pube at the bottom of my gums at dinner time and needed a course of antibiotics.

    While I like oysters and steak individually, i'm struggling to see the appeal of that dish and had never even heard of it before but being the type of guy who will try anything once should I ever see it on a menu I will give it a go.

    ^ and delivered to your door?

    Had been a well-done feller most of my life but 3 or so years ago I started ordering/grilling medium rare and am still moving closer to absolute rare.

    ~but always drenched in A1 - I drink that shit straight.

    Rare medium rare for me. Blue at times, if the steak is highest quality and leanish (I say "ish" because no fat is no no (quality fillet excepted). I love the fat but not raw fat).
    It's not blood seeping onto your plate, it's cellular juices.
    One of the most disappointing things in dining is over-cooked steak or salmon.

    Yeah, but delicious snot, Harry.


    So, I clicked "reply". Seems a bit silly that what I was replying to is not quoted. Had to edit and add in Harry's name for clarity.

    Choosing Reply as opposed to Reply with Quote, the button just next to it, does that. Quite surprisingly......

    Not sure what you mean. The QQ feature allowed you to highlight a part of a persons comments rather than the entire post. I used it all the time.
