    Medium well for me. Not a big steak person really though.

    Rare, but not walking.
    Who, if not you. When, if not now.

    I hate rare meat, I think that the fad for it has been encouraged so as to allow quicker service in restaurants, its easier to cook meat rare than to cook it not just "well done" but cooked well with blackened, charred, "burnt ends". Plus I've heard all the stories about the worst steaks being prepared for people who ask for their meat to be well cooked too, sometimes I've thought its true even, still I know I like it done very well, with all the burning etc.

    If your steak is "too dry" then guess what the sauces and gravies and other things which you can order or which usually accompany steaks or meat are for? Its to deal with that problem, you arent supposed to undercook meat and then pretend what's running all over your plate is gravy or juices rather than blood!

    I can eat that raw crap and I have in the past but I prefer not to, I prefer the incinerated variety every day of the week

    If you want a steak cooked well-done, forgo the steak and just chew on a shoe.

    Well, that sort of makes me think about how you've never had a good well done steak.

    Sure anyone can go to Outback or Logan's or any casual steakhouse chain and get a steak (Ruth's Chris not included in the chain shame). They have nothing in common with say Killen’s Steakhouse in Pearland TX or Taste of Texas in Houston or the Chicago Chop House - all of which I can say are excellent from personal experience.

    Gravy on a steak?? I don't even know what to say. Hell no maybe. You can order it like this - I want a medium/medium well steak. Any good cook can easily make a steak exactly the way it's ordered. The better places are making steaks at 1500-1800 degrees - well done is not a time issue.

    I can also tell you that most meat is overcooked, no matter what it is. Fish as well. This is the taste many people grew up with and aren't willing to expand on. Exception: I do like my hamburgers on the more med. well side. Reason being I hate a soggy bun and food born illness are much more likely in ground meat than whole pieces.

    BTW, "burnt ends" are a thing onto themselves, they are beef brisket ends, not steaks. The specialty of Kansas City BBQ - we do them on our smoker.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
