    What is the attraction of a well done steak? Last night I was at a hibachi place and the couple next to me ordered their steaks well done. The chef threw the poor pieces of beautiful meat in front of me and let them cook and cook and cook. I wanted to scream in outrage.

    What is the deal? How could anyone eat a steak that has been overcooked?

    I have no idea. I want my steak still mooing when it hits my plate. If I have to chase it around to get a bite, that's OK, too. :drool:

    I agree. My instructions to the server are always "Show it to the fire and then bring it out."

    :rofl:

    I like it very rare too. I usually tell the server "Just knock the horns off of it, and chase it across the grill!" I get very few blank looks out ot that one. :supergrin:

    Cook til the juices run clear!! Then cover with A-1. It's how steak is done.

    I'm in charge of the grill at the firehouse on my shift. That's another way of saying I'm low guy on the totem pole, but I digress.

    My Lt. wants his well done every time. I literally throw it on the grill 15 minutes before the others, (rare). The edges come out black & almost burnt. Just how he likes it.

    I always ask if he enjoyed the piece of shoe leather he just consumed.

    I just don't get it.

    Medium rare to rare for mine, and if you paid me a hundred bucks, I still wouldn't let A-1 get near my steak! I wouldn't even put it on meat loaf! Well maybe meat loaf, but it sure as heck ain't getting on my steak!

    Steak sauce is only for unseasoned or poorly seasoned steaks!

    I used to love my steaks rare. Here recently I've been enjoying them closer to medium rare. My wife loves hers burnt to a crisp. I have to put hers on 10 or 15 minutes before mine. :supergrin:
     
  12. 5 minutes on each side for medium rare. yummy.

    My father-in-law likes his well-done with no pink so he used to burn them. I made one for him that was well-done but tender and juicy. He didn't think it was possible.

    Medium in certain instances medium-rare (chimchuri). Nothing on it except maybe salt. If it needs anything, I'd rather not bother.

    I like mine mid-rare to mid. I changed my gf from well done to mid. She would kill me, we would go out and she would order her filet mignons well done. i also asked her what the point of that was, she could never tell me. One day while we were out I gave her a piece of my mid streak and she loved it. Ever since she has stopped ordering her steak well done. She just might be a keeper after all.
