    How do you like to eat your steak? Also what do you eat your steak with?

    If you are vegetarian please do not comment.

    Well done.

    Not a particularly big fan of blood pooling in my gravy. And it simply must be eaten with gen-u-ine Colman's English Mustard and with potato and broccoli. A really nice gravy, too... with fresh mint and pepper.

    No more inane than 90% of the other polls!


    GRAVY?!:eek:

    Steak, mushrooms fries and maybe a splash of Tabasco!
    What more do you need?

    Surely you mean a well-done steak with fried onions, chips and peas?

    Why eat it dead when you can eat it live?


    I prefer Medium Rare to Medium. Well done steak to me tastes like a hamburger.

    I usually like mine medium to medium-well, especially with mushroom and peppercorn sauce.

    Well done? Blergh!!

    I'll have mine Rare please waiter. I'd rather not have a steak that's been chucked around the kitchen, zapped in the microwave, deep-fried and then grilled. Cause Chefs HATE cooking steaks well-done.

    A proper steak shouldn't need any sauce. But I like mine marinaded, cooked to perfection (rare) and served with some chips and vegies and either Dianne sauce or every now and then just a dash of the old "dead horse" on the side - tops at a BBQ.

    I like mine differently in different moods. :p

    I used to always like it well done, and still do at times, where it's nice and crispy on the outside and any fat is golden brown and tasty. However, I do like them a bit rare too, these days — still as brown as you can get it on the outside, but the inside still pink. I'd have ketchup with the well done one, but not the rarer one. It's like two separate foods, they taste so different.

    Having said that, I rarely eat steak. It's not often I fancy a giant piece of meat like that, I'm more of a bits of meat in something else kind of girl. And I definitely prefer lamb over beef, myself. Beef's got a funny taste to it.

    I've worked in the industry for nearly ten years. Nothing makes a Chef more annoyed than getting an order for a well-done steak.

    Well done is awful... wastes good steak by making it tougher to chew.

    I'll have it rare to medium rare... and no need for sauces with a good bit of beef. Just serve it with some black pepper, new potatoes and brocolli or green beans. Fabulous...

    My mouth is watering now... might have to stop at the butchers on the way home :D

    "Garlic, rosemary and salt". :D Agreed though, best combination ever.

    I loves me some lamb — all savoury on the outside and slightly pink in the middle. <drools>

    (Good to see you back, by the way! :) )

    Yum *drool*.

    ... and here's me sat at my desk eating Weetabix for lunch.

    Grr. So hungry.

    I chase them round the field, yelling "Mint Sauce!!!!"

    ... but only at weekends.

    It's true...

    Asking for a steak well done is like insulting the chefs mother.

    You are asking them to take a beautiful juicy textured piece of meat and reduce it to a tough dry one. It's their art you see, and it breaks their hearts to ruin good ingredients.

    Mmmmmmmmm, Where's the drooling smiley when you need it??


    On a visit to Paris I had duck, cooked rare and bloody!
    Now that was nice!!!
    When I go back I'll have it again!!!


    Any food over cooked is nasty!
    My favourite Sunday dinner is:

    Roast Lamb (nice and pink)
    Raw carrots
    Raw white cabbage
    Golden brown roast potatos
    Steamed fresh peas
    Mint sauce
    Gravy!
    MMmmMMmMmmmmmmmm...
