Horseradish is awesome. Also, Allegory, if you enjoy your steak as leather, then enjoy it as leather. You're eating it, so who gives a **** what anyone else thinks. This is a fine way to make sure no one tries to steal your food (my methods involve me having to hide a body).

It would be interesting to find out if restaurants keep some select grade beef just to swap in when people order their steaks medium or well. I mean, why waste prime grade beef in that situation? ****. May as well hand them a flanksteak as well, given that they probably wont notice it's not ribeye either.

Yes Allegory, I'm mocking you! Smiley: cool

Horseradish and mustard (and wasabi) all have the same chemical that gives them their spicy flavor. As opposed to capsaicin found in peppers.

I enjoy mustard as well so that makes sense. I can't say I've used wasabi outside of a sushi context.

I don't like steak that looks like a grenade victim, but I'll never understand how anyone can eat a well done steak. To me it's like gnawing on rawhide. I've got beef jerky for that.


I like well done, but only if it's a good select prepared correctly. If I have my doubts, I'll go with medium well, but that's as "rare" as I'll get.

I made that change out eating with classmates once where I ordered a well done steak and another classmate ordered a rare steak (iirc). My steak was tough and he was making fun of my excessive chews, while his steak was literally sitting in a pool of blood. When he was looking for his pen to sign the receipt, I told him to just use his blood. At that point, I realized that I should vary from medium well to well depending on the restaurant.

Rare to med-rare for me. My wife has been moving from charcoal to med-well. My stepson used to eat it the same as her until once when we were camping me and my best friend refused to cook him anything that well done. Ever since the kid ate a steak med-rare he refuses to touch anything well done. He still wont touch a rare steak but at least I have him trained better. My daughter on the other hand will ask me to cut "the crust" off of a rare steak, At least she was trained well!!

Trained well? A good sear on the outside is the best part of a good steak.

More than one person has been using the term "medium well" so I have to ask:

What's the difference between medium well and medium rare? Is it a "half full/half empty" kind of thing?

One is slightly less done than medium the other is slightly more done than medium. Consider them to medium as NW and NE are to N.

Nothing other than the fact that the meat isn't "finished". If you're a person who likes a steak medium well to well, then seeing your steak in a pool of blood is a good indicator that your steak isn't "finished". It's one thing to be a little rare, but swimming in blood is a little excessive.

Human beings are the only species on the planet that intentionally cook the bulk of their food supply. Assuming proper care as been taken, the only difference between a rare steak and a well done steak is color, taste, and texture. It's certainly a subjective matter, but to say "it isn't finished" implies that you have a misunderstanding about the quality of the food you're ingesting.

I read it as "not cooked to where I ordered it" instead of "done from an objective standpoint".

His use of the word "finished" leads me to believe otherwise.

Those are the relevant modifying terms that led me to my interpretation.

So, you eat raw animals without cooking? Are you saying that there are no health issues in eating uncooked food?

It's about time people drop the animal kingdom comparisons. Regardless of your belief if we're "animals" are not, we are not one in the same. Animals behave based off of their bodies and environment. Until those two factors gestate to being the same for both humans and ALL animals, these like comparisons are not valid.

There's no misunderstanding at all. Unless you hunt and eat dead and/live animals lying in place of their death, then you are conceptually no different. You only have a varying degree of what defines "finished". I could easily argue your misunderstanding about the quality of the food you're ingesting. Hence, the quotes around the subjective word "finished".

He picked the opposite of what most other people here said just to argue and you took the bait.

I eat my steak rare, yes. As far as I'm concerned, the whole point of "cooking" a steak is to get a nice sear on the outside because it adds flavor, not because it protects me from some flesh eating, stomach wrenching virus.

Once again, you went from being mildy tolerable to showing what a complete imbecile you are. Do you think cave men spontaneously appeared on this planet with the knowledge of fire and cooking? Where the **** do you think human beings came from? No wait, don't answer that... Smiley: oyvey
