    How do you like your steak cooked?

    How do you like your steak cooked?

    Went to Fleming's last night with a friend. We both ordered the ribeye steak. Fleming's steaks are pretty incredible for a large chain restaurant. I ordered mine rare, as usual. She orders hers well done. I know it's not my steak and I did a good job holding back, but it really mind boggles me. Why would anyone destroy a $50 steak by cooking the living crap out of it? I don't get it.

    I guess it doesn't matter since I'm not eating it. Still though, feels like a waste! I'm not saying go rare, but dang! Not well done!

    ^^ my sentiment exactly! have a friend who is the exact same way. dont get it.

    i do, however, alternate between medium rare and medium. ive found medium rare sometimes leaves these little white chewy things that cant be chewed up. i really dont like this. as a result i switched to medium and the white things are gone.

    some very good cut of filet does not have the white things at med rare, but a lot of them do. i used to eat only filet, but have branched out to the ribeye, which i get medium rare.

    Yes. Ruth's Chris is good. We have a local place called Eddie V's, probably the best steak ever. Also Bartletts (formerly Houston's) is good.

    I think it could be more about the blood. I don't like the sight of blood, have to cover my eyes when watching movies with blood, can't watch operations....it's not that I love my steak well done, it's that I don't like it swimming in blood.

    I eat raw sushi. No blood.

    For me medium well is the perfect steak. No blood and the cow isn't still mooing.

    I know but it's the site of blood.

    Btw I never send my undercooked steak back to the kitchen. Think of movie 'waiting' habahaha. I just eat the non bloody part and carry out the rest. Mic the crap out it later. Blasphemy. LoL

    I go for in between medium rare and medium. But I chose medium.

    My bulk steak is ribeye and my lean obvious sirloin.

    The best is filet mignon....but that's for rich people not country hicks like me...lol

    Yes. Steaks are actually made from plastic.

    Two different restaurants we servered two people. One guy eats 14oz filet raw and ice cold.

    Other actually shared a delmonico raw with his 12 yo daughter. They ate fat and all.

    Nice, yeah they're a bit pricey. I'm due for a new grill. I think I'll get one after xmas when the prices go down.

    another thing is that the egg takes a while to heat up.. like 20 mins. I like to fire it up and get that meat on there without waiting. The way it cooks though is so good.. nice and even and meat comes out perfect.

    This is the grill I have..... Can't even think of something to complain about. It's a fantastic grill and cooks evenly..... The smoker works like a charm. It can blow through fuel if u use all the burners but that's to be expected.

    The thread title asks how I'd like my steak cooked.

    Correct answer, by a seriously hot, scantily clad female. IMHO.

    I win. Give me my cookie.
