No crispy steaks off of my BBQs

I like to add minute amounts of crushed black pepper . . . no hot sauces on a good steak because they hide the taste of the meat
That's the way I like them.

Steak..... Well Done please!

It really irritates me when people criticize my choice and tell me that a steak is meant to be eaten rare. Ummmm excuse me, but I'm well aware of what tastes good to me. It's very arrogant to tell someone else how they should order their food.

Once I actually had a waiter tell me I was insulting the chef by asking for my rib eye steak to be cooked well done. .... I told him to keep his opinions to himself and to send over the manager; when the manager came over I told him I did not appreciate being told how I "should" order my food and I wanted a different waiter.

I'm always very nice to the wait staff, I say please and thank you, I don't complain and I tip well.... but I certainly won't stand for a snobby waiter (or anyone else) telling me how I should order my food.

I had a great steak last night where we went out and now I want another tonight.

I hope the red wine offsets the red meat.

YUCK.... I wouldn't eat that.... it needs another 15-20 minutes on the grill! When guests come to my house I will cook their steak any way they like it. I have no problem cooking a rare steak for anyone who likes it that way. Everyone has their own taste and I want my guests to enjoy their food the way THEY like it... not the way I think they should

i grew up on a farm and we raised our own cattle for meat. i did not like steak or roast beef for years, because as a kid my mom would cook all meat till it crunched. it wasn't till moved out and was living on my own and did not like taking to long to cook food that i realized good beef can really be. when i am at a restaurant i always ask for rare because they seem to over do it.

When I first started dating my wife. My future mother-in-law made me a steak. Unfortunately she cooked it the way she it's meat "crunchy". Luckily I had know her (my future mother in law) about years (through mutual friends) before my wife and I stated dating. so I had no problem telling her that she was a magician. I told her she had the ability to take good food and turn it into shit without passing it through the human body. Both her and my future father-in-law laughed their asses off. My wife not so much. But now she will eat steak medium rare.

I've worked if 4 star restaurants where the head chef refused to cook a steak or tuna past med rare. In high in restaurants the chef is the bossman, so thats how that particular place rolled.

The waiter was just trying to help, which is his job. In a nice restaurant, the waiter's roll isn't just to take your order and bring your food, but more to guide you through the meal selection process, make recommendations, and aid you in determining the best drink compliment to go with it. High end waiters take their jobs pretty seriously. While he should have gone about that a little differently, a waiters job IS to essentially share his opinion... which is usually heavily influenced by the chef

That being said, try your meat one degree lower next time, with an open mind and without deciding you don't like it before you try it... most people who eat rare meat started much more cooked and moved down the scale when they realized how good it actually is that way.

Just like sushi, a palette for rare meat is a mark of social status and wealth as both have typically been out of reach of the common man until the past century. As such, people view both as being sophisticated and classy... so they force themselves to indulge in it and eventually develop a taste for it. Both are acquired tastes, as are fine wines, nice

A veterinarian with minimal skills could bring my steak back to life.

I like my steaks cooked so that the last piece eaten is slightly warm; in other words, medium rare to rare. A well-done steak has very little good taste, in my opinion and needs steak sauce to have any taste at all. Don't want to make those of you who like well-done meat, that's just the way I like my meat.
