depends on the cut. Thicker cuts, I will get medium to medium well so the center is a little cooked.

I don't even know what that means.


In all honesty, I'm not much of a big steak eater. I have to be in the "mood" for one, that only comes about once a year. I was curious what other people liked.

I thought I hated steak until I was in my 20s. The only steak I'd had growing up (parents could never afford it) was with my grand parents. They always cooked all meat until it was so well done it was dry and burned on edges. All my life I thought that's what steak was and didn't know why so many people loved it. I see it can be much better, but "in my head", I still have a hard time "loving" it.

No so much interested in the filling, but the skin makes for excellent saddles, shoes/boots, and jackets.

(we have a three-inch thick Porterhouse from Publix awaiting an Xmas grilling; it will be slathered w/olive oil, salted, and sprinkled w/coarse ground pepper, then grilled for nine minutes per side over a bed of hot charcoal [not on a propane grill] - heaven!)

Been a long time since I've had steak, but usually medium when I can get it.

I kinda miss Publix out here.


BTW....I prefer propane. I don't need the taste of carbon injected into my meat.

I love steak, nothing gets me salivating like a well done (not well done as in cooked) steak...

Blue is essentially raw..like tuna for sushi

OK. I had a feeling that was where you were going, but I wasn't sure.

Slow! I like mine well done, but the most important factor is that it slow cooks on low heat. I can produce a steak thats as tender as medium-rare while still being safely cooked.
