    Too many to list now.
    I asked a friends wife how she liked her steak and her response was this:
    "Well done with no fat and LOTS of A1 sauce",

    To which I replied,

    "You know it's easier to say you just dont like steak"

    Damn, of the 265 votes so far, only 32 people (including myself) like their steak rare.

    :notsure:

    Are you insecure about your choice?

    I hate when this thread pops up when its dinner time and I haven't eaten yet.

    medium rare...
    cooked on screaming hot cast iron (once you try that you'll never go back).
    seasoned...
    and sauces? they have their place in the culinary world, but I generally pass.

    Best tasting cuts? Good skirt steak (our local market has choice grade and it's sick), or rib-eye. Second for me is good filet. If it's not one of those I generally will not buy or order it.

    if you want a store bought sauce that's amazing...

    hard to find though.

    Ingredients: Salt, Garlic, Black Pepper, other Spices, Monosoduim Glutamate (Less than 3.5%) and calcuim stearate.

    No thanks! Just use some salt and pepper (I don't use pepper as it can burn).

    Hey, I like a good plain and simple steak, just the taste of the grill and the meat, but that stuff is the shit no matter what's in it.

    The salt and pepper is supposed to burn. It creates the crust on the steak when you sear it.

    What I consider Med - Rare is what most people consider Rare. I get a lot of looks when I'm done cooking a steak in about 6-10 mins on a HOT HOT grill (full coal chimney full of kingsford, no match light or lighterfluid GROSS!). My response... Is Trust me. It's done.

    If it's properly brought up to room temp, salted and peppered, and allowed to rest, there will be almost no blood, yet the inside will be VERY pink with a very well done crust. That's the perfect steak in my opinion.

    I have a local butcher shop and I cook a delmonico or sirloin at least once a week and I've never run into anyone that has ever put the fork down on one of my steaks :)

    Knock the horns off, wipe the butt and slide it across the grill.

    Honestly, it depends on how I'm cooking it.
    On the grill=Medium rare w/garlic olive oil & cracked pepper
    Panfried= Medium w/coconut oil & mushrooms

    Cheap cuts get the Sous Vide treatment first. If I'm in a wacky mood, I'll soak them in Teryaki marinade overnight.
