    Default How do you like your steak?

    ... and if the chef just ignored your request how would you feel?

    We went out to a lovely restaurant the other evening, but the in-laws committed the ultimate sin and ordered their steak well done. The owner put his pen down, knelt down at the side of them and tried to convince them not to saying, 'I know it's not your fault, it's the way you were brought up, but please don't'. In the end he brought them medium/well done, but didn't mention it until they'd finished.

    Medium rare here, medium in France as their definitions seem to differ a bit

    I used to always ask for well done, but since eating in France where they won't fucking do it well done I've discovered I like it medium rare.

    Yeah, France do their own thing. 'Bien cuit' is pink and is as cooked as you're going to get it.

    I remember our very first visit to France, we'd ordered room service and were eating a lovely steak in dim light, then mopping the sauce up with the bread. When we turned the big light on it wasn't sauce at all, it was blood.

    Yeah, I don't like it too bloody, but I don't need it burned these days.

    I felt a bit embarrassed when the owner put his pen down, it was almost as if he was going to chuck us out for offending him.

    I didn't get told off because I went for the Stroganoff, but that was pink in the middle.

    Luckily he made a fuss of my daughter the whole time, picking her up, chatting to her and taking her off to bring the birthday cake in from the kitchen and stuff, so the in-laws took it well when he admitted he'd ignored them and cooked it pink.

    Rare, no other way. If it comes any more than rare I don't enjoy it.

    Depends on my mood, sometimes medium-rare, sometimes medium, sometimes rare. I don't really like it well done but I don't get on my high horse like some people do if others do.

    I don't think I could eat it rare. In France I'd get well done, but most of the time it was probably medium so I got used to it that way. I want it pink, but not too bloody.
