How do you like your steaks?
« on: September 03, 2016, 05:28:46 PM »
There ain't nothing like a juicy steak, amirite?

My family is apparently afraid of the color red, so most of us have only eaten well-done steaks. Recently, I tried medium and enjoyed it significantly more than I enjoy well-done steaks.

do you have a visual guide for these, because we only ever just cooked it and ate it whatever it looked like that was also done.

Generally I prefer my food well done, but my family insists that medium rare is the best way to enjoy steak. So medium rare is usually how I have mine.

-Edit-

Actually now that I think about it more, I'm pretty sure we eat them medium and not medium rare, I already voted medium rare but eh, its probably somewhere in that range.

Due to the boards shutting down, I have "mostly" taken my leave and am now "mostly" inactive here.

If for whatever reason you want to contact me, my email is the best way now to do so.
(Just hover over the MSN butterfly to find my address).

Till next time everyone, its been a blast.

Ah, so, in that case, we usually do medium-rare to medium.

Even though there's no actual way a properly prepared rare steak can kill you? Food poisoning bacteria are on the surface of the steak, not inside it. You're more likely to get sick from a contaminated salad.

This. I've heard eating it when it's not well done leads to cancer so yeah.

That's interesting, because according to the National Cancer Institute, the opposite is likely true:

Quote
The formation of HCAs and PAHs varies by meat type, cooking method, and “doneness” level (rare, medium, or well done). Whatever the type of meat, however, meats cooked at high temperatures, especially above 300ºF (as in grilling or pan frying), or that are cooked for a long time tend to form more HCAs. For example, well done, grilled, or barbecued chicken and steak all have high concentrations of HCAs. Cooking methods that expose meat to smoke or charring contribute to PAH formation (2).

Of course, having a steak on a grill for any length of time will lead to the formation of carcinogenic HCAs, but the rarer steaks will spend less time on the grill than your shoe leather. Therefore, they will on average have lower HCA levels and will be less carcinogenic.

Logically, blue rare steaks should be the least carcinogenic, though they would also be cold inside and unappetizing to a lot of people.
