Did you make the same mistake that I did ordering steak from a restaurant? (Details Inside)

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (24655points) May 23rd, 2021

I thought that “well done” was done well, and was the best because I wrongly thought that pink steak had cooties. Now I know better and cook my own meat medium, and ribs instead.

No I never make that mistake.
Eating undercooked beef can have “cooties” like various species of tapeworms and harmful bacteria. Personally I like to eat my parasites well done. HA!

When it comes to possible cooties in meat, pork is the one to really worry about.
(For the record, I ask for my steak to be “medium well.”)

No, I never made that mistake because my father taught us about “rare” to “ well done” over the Aunday roast. My parents also taught me to not worry about beef, but to cook pork all the way through, and fowl to 165 degrees F to kill bacteria.

I hate to break it to you @RedDeerGuy1, but meat doesn’t have cooties, only kids have cooties.

Medium rare here.

When we first got together Rick used to ask for his steak “Well done.” Then dad turned over in his grave….

I have had Steak tartare in several restaurants including Montreal fifty years ago. Also in a restaurant in Palm Beach Florida in the mid 1980s.
Steak tartare is chopped meat that they chop at the table and make a dressing or raw sauce from capers and raw egg.

The only steak I ever ordered was a kangaroo steak. I ordered it medium, but it was still pretty tough.

Cooties? In steak? I thought only little girls had cooties. ~

Medium rare here but willing to try the Pittsburgh, sounds great.

@chyna HA! and here I thought that only little boys had cooties!

I love pink as a colour and used to wear it often as a child. I like Pink coastal sand and stucco walls—and it only stands to reason that I would like pink steak as well.

What matters is the searing temperature the outside surface (the part that was cut) is cooked to the proper temperature,

The biggest mistake I have made regarding steak was when I ordered Steak Tartare.

Medium raw or well burned for me…either way, you just can’t beat steak with a stick.
