Depends.


#3

I like it medium rare - but in some places I will say rare cos lots of places overcook their steak


#4

on?

This steak chat isn’t going to make itself you know.


#5

anything above medium rare is a waste


#6

medium rare in the states, rare in most places over here.


#7

When asked, I respond:

“However the chef recommends”

It’s an approach I’d recommend


#8
  • Fries
  • Chunky chips
  • Baked potato
  • Roasties
  • Boiled
  • Dauphinois
  • Mash
  • No potato

#9

none of these are types of steak


#10

I’m a medium rare man myself too, with a side order of anxiety about asking for that and it sounding like the cop out option of someone who wants to send edgier than medium but can’t cope with rare.


#11

Depends on the steak but usually medium rare


#12

Who said they were? The question was how do you like it, not which cut do you like.


#13

I like it to not be overcooked but to not bleed on the plate, so medium, i guess.


#14

Steak accompaniment innit.


#15

Have you been to LatinoAmerica in Hove?

That’s some tasty steak


#16

if it’s a decent restaurant: rare
if it’s a chain / questionable quality: medium rare / medium


#17

Think I only order steak when I’m not convinced that anything else in the menu will definitely be lactose free, i.e. at every work meal at some wank “contemporary British” restaurant ever


#18

True. But if you responded “boiled” when asked “how would you like your steak cooked” I think you’d be setting yourself up for a fall


#19

I know it’s controversial but I really really like mash with steak. It’s really good for the sauce.

In New York I had pan fried mash where it had a crust on it which was just amazing.

EDIT; found the actual recipe from where we went here:

If you order a steak medium and there’s no pink in it, do you send it back?

Had a crap steak recently because it was overdone but felt it would be too insulting to send it back (even though it was them who got it wrong).
