Medium.

I once worked at Outback Steakhouse as a host. It was torture - you had to spend your 8 hour shift walking around freshly cooked meat/potatoes/cheese fries/deserts and any other delicious foods you can think of. I had to endure the smell of them, but couldnt touch. For 8 hours. During dinner time. It was just plain torture.

Plus, it was boring as hell.

I have a buddy who likes it, as he says, "so rare that a good veterinarian could have it up and running about again"!

I'm a medium. I see dead cows...

Rare for most steaks, but medium rare for prime motherfuckin' rib.

Thinkin' about Lawry's bowl cut. Mmmmmmm

Actually it doesn't surprise me just because it seems like a safe choice for people who either don't know steak very well or if you're at a restaurant that isn't exactly know for kick ass steak.
I'm usually 'medium rare' with a 'rare' thrown in from time to time if I'm somewhere really nice. I actually get angry for some reason when people get it 'well done'. DOn't know why, I shouldn't care what people like but it just seems like they're ruining it.

They are ruining it. They might as well order a fucking pork chop if they just want a charred hunk of meat.

I used to always get medium, but last month I went to this nice restaurant in North Carolina and the chef recommended medium rare, like usual, so I went with it. Good choice too, because it was the best damn steak I ever had. A 16 oz blackened rib eye served medium rare. Oh God, I'm drooling.

Does anyone know of a place in LA to get a good BLACKENED ribeye?

How the hell anyone could eat a well done steak (or any slab of beef) and enjoy it is beyond me. Might as well go stick a catchers mit in your mouth and knaw.

A chef I used to know would get pissed off when an order for a well done steak would come up. He would go ahead and burn the fuck out of it as he assumed the customer didn't care about the meat.

A butcher shop in my hometown had a special cut that was extremely popular known as the Saratoga-cut. I've never come across it elsewhere. It was was more or less a filet and tri-tip hybrid. Delicious.

There is this place in Elko, Nevada called the Star Hotel. Its an old hotel that cowboys used to stay at after being out on the range. Anyway, they turned it into a restaurant/bar and they serve basque style food, so it is all family style. They have the best filet I have ever...ever tasted. If you are ever passing through Elko I recommend eating there.

ya, no shit, but the old yakov routine was about soviet russia, assfisty. It's this whole other government they used to have, you see. He always specified soviet because that's the only context in which the jokes make sense.

Unless you are of the belief that Russians are just generally backwards and retarded. Which I am. But I'll change it, anyways. And for the record...

In Soviet Russia, little boy throws Jack into van!

If I go to Sizzler I ask for well done because they cook it perfectly there. A high end steak place medium well. Dont ask for well done at Ruths Chris, it will end up burnt for example. The best steak I have ever had was last year in the Paris hotel at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Vegas. Cooked to perfection and has this amazing wine sauce to go with it. I highly reccomend having dinner there if you can splurge. Also ask for a table next to the strip side so you can watch the Bellagio water show while you eat.

I've never been to a 'Morton's' but I always here people say its the best steakhouse they've ever been to. I'm going to St. Louis for 3 straight weeks in late April for work and I know they have one there. I'll have to hit that up a couple times.

Statistically, the distribution should look like a bell curve. But I bet that people intentionally don't choose "medium" just because it sounds lame.

me either. i always order medium rare at restaurants. i try to do the same at home but im always afraid of overcooking, so i pretty much just end up warming it up a little only. still yummy.

Yeah I was just watching this documentary, in southern India almost everyone is vegetarian, thats 500 million people, weirdness...

In northern india however, they don't have a problem eating meat, in fact many families keep pigs. The pigs mainly eat human faeces out of the turd troughs they call toilets over there (I know someone who stayed in with a family who had one) they eat the pigs of course, which is basically like eating your own recycled logs, mmm.
