Depends on the establishment...sometimes blue if i know the place, sometimes rare if its a recommended place, otherwise medium if I dont know the place
Depends on the cut of the steak, a fillet generally blue rare/rare through to medium for a rib-eye as they take a bit more cooking due to fat content.
Haha this is always a good one for Edugeek's, especially @vikpaw hey Vik Mooooooo :D hehehe muhahahahaha
As for my choice Medium Well or Well Done depending on how I'm feeling :)
How do I like my steak?...still on the animal rather than dead on my plate..
(sorry, but there ALWAYS has to be an outraged vegetarian in this sort of thing :))
I like mine medium rare, but so many places overcook steak that I frequently ask for rare in the UK. The only establishments that understand blue is different to raw are either in France or can cook steak how I like it anyway.
Medium well here, but echoing what others have said few places seem to get a steak order correct: that order can get you anything from rare to charcoal.
A good friend of my dads likes his steak pretty much blue. As he says, knock it's horns off, wipe it's a**e and stick it on a plate.
Me personally I like medium rare, but often order rare because they are always overcooked. Best steak I've ever had was in a little pub in the new forest, they cooked it perfectly and it was a really nice steak with a lot of flavour. One guy in the place was complaining about it because it had a strong flavour and he insisted the meat was off - poor bloke had obviously never had a decent steak before. I felt sorry for the chef trying to explain that's how it's supposed to taste, and your average supermarket or wholesale brought meat just doesn't taste the same.
"Porterhouse blue" is how I like my steak, in fact just lop off the horns, wipe its ar*e and put it on the plate :D
Chefs I know tell me that they keep the best steak for those who ask for blue, those who like well done get the stuff the dog won't eat!
Medium all the way. Best of all worlds :).
