    Just wondering if there's really more people out there that prefers medium-rare/rare steak than the opposite.

    I personally always order/cook steak medium-rare and won't tolerate steak cooked above medium.

    What about you guys?

    My steak should be cooked rare, worst case medium rare. Anything above medium rare I just won't eat.

    I prefer mine medium-rare to medium. It mainly depends on how tender and how well marinated the steak is.

    Rare or Medium Rare is my choice. I don't eat anything more cooked than Medium Rare.

    Rare of course. Anything else is wrong. There shouldn't be any ridiculous sauces with cream or peppercorns or any of that shite.


    A good steak with a bit of Maldon seasalt and some freshly ground black pepper is all you need!

    I go with medium on my steaks -- since I have converted to bison instead of cattle, it's been a bit of a challenge to get the right temps and timing down, but I'll get it down eventually.

    Steak, I don't eat that mad cow.

    No if I did, it would be medium rare.  That's the healthiest.

    Medium-rare. If if is more done than that, you should give it to the dogs.

    Rare to medium rare.  Occasionally I'll be in the moooooood for blue rare or under.

    I always go for medium rare, but I've never tried anything else, it's what my dad always used to get

    Rare. The best steaks are crispy on the outside and bloody on the inside.  Not an easy thing to do though.

    I cooked that badboy last night... little overdone though, turned out medium(ish). I like rare-to-medium rare. I used to work at a steakhouse and used to great at making steaks... now... not so much. But it was aright. I got distracted with the veggies and overcooked the best part of the meal. Bacon was done in the microwave, so it sucked.

    In any good steakhouse, I can order medium plus.  It's not overdone, but doesn't have any blood.  Everywhere else is medium well, or I get a huge piece of uncooked steak and blod.

    Bloody, but not cold.
