Exactly as the title asks. How do you like your steak? Well done, medium well, medium, medium rare, raw cow leg?

Does anyone cook in sous-vide fashion?

I like my steaks from medium, medium well, to well done. I'll eat either of the 3.

Medium well, medium, well, and well done. I try and avoid having rare beef, thanks to a few food poisoning incidents. Plus, I've never been a fan of the texture of fat (I'm opposed to most gelatinous foods), which is only exacerbated by however less the meat is cooked.

Thoroughly dead, bordering on "shoe sole".
Which is why steak is one of the foods I avoid when eating out.

...on a plate. Don't you hate it when you question whether the in-house roaches have already tread across the surface area once or twice in search of...? This happened to me in Phoenix, AZ a few decades ago. Damn German roach skittered across the table adroitly missing being crushed by my fist twice before it hopped headlong up onto the plate and across the surface area of the meat attempting a quick exit. Ah, crap, hadn't eaten all day and this happens. Blah...

medium rare otherwise

medium to medium well. Can't stand where its nearly fully raw or when its well done, where the steak feels difficult to eat.

Well done, can't stand steak when it's too chewy and juicy.

Medium rare. If you have it any other way you're doing it wrong.

This is steak we are talking about.

You need that rich, full flavor. Well done is over cooked.

But hey, if you want to ruin steak go ahead, you do whatever you want

Steak doesn't deserve you you shame steak, you well done lovers

Medium rare to rare. I don't like the flavor cooked out of my steak.

1) let the (never frozen) steak come to room temperature

2) rub the steak with peanut oil

3) place the steak in hot pan

4) grind pepper and sprinkle salt on steak

5) flip steak

6) repeat 4

7) remove steak from pan and let rest

8) deglaze pan with your favorite wine

9) add butter and mushrooms to the reduction

10) poor any juices that have leaked out of the steak while resting into the reduction

11) poor the reduction over the steak and serve

pretty much/

The weird thing though, is how often people remember that about me. I've had others tell the server at restaurants how rare I like my meat like it's somehow the most exotic thing they've seen.

Just seared on both sides and slightly below room temp at the center.
