    After discussing eating vegetarians, I thought a more palatable topic would be eating steak. So, for you carnivores out there, how do you like your steak prepared?

    Extra Rare, please. No need to cook it - just tell the cow about the fire. That'll do.

    Yum! That's how I like mine too!

    Prior to mad cow disease, medium rare. Afterwards, medium.

    And how about which cut? My family and I were content with sirloin.

    (sorry, Moonbear, I think I drooled on your thread. I'll get a napkin.)

    Filet Mignon is great, but too expensive for my student budget. Sometimes my parents make it though. Those are happy dinners.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    I have a thing for bloody meat but more especially it is fine when the skin has not been cut away and the butcher didn't remove the hair from all the follicles. :smile:

    Mmmmm, filet wrapped in bacon...yum. I'm also fond of chuck steaks. It's cheap, but if you can find one that's really well marbled, which is usually pretty easy for chuck, they are SO tender and flavorful!

    I'm a wuss (tribdog, you've got company).

    I prefer my steak medium-well to well done. I'm no Vincent Vega.

    Medium to medium rare for me. I hated steak until I was 14 years old because my mother always cooked steak until it was a dried out piece of shoe leather. It was actually painful trying to chew it. I'd give up and spit it out. I could not figure out why people liked steak. :yuck:

    When I was 14 I went to a steakhouse with a friend and my life changed forever. :approve:

    Porterhouse and T Bone are favorites. Fillet Mignon is a treat. A good chuck steak done right is very tasty. I buy these cheap cuts at the grocer they call "charquettes" and grill them and they are incredible, very marbled.

    The child of Evo likes her steaks still mooing.

    Isn't that animal cruelty?

    I like it medium, but my neighbors would consider that still mooing. They like their dried leather shoes off the grill.

    Rib Eye. Charred over oak wood. Covered in garlic salt and lemon pepper. More ground black pepper. Medium rare. Garlic parmesan french bread to sop up the juice.

    Get rid of the lemon pepper and make it rare. :approve:

    ...and we're talking about a wood fire. One day it dawned on mey why food always tasted so much better when backpacking. Its not just the great outdoors, it's the wood fire!!! Chips just aren't the same. I cut some fresh oak just before each BBQ.

    Medium rare, blackened with extreme heat, and cooked very quickly. Tsu and I love our steaks about as much as Belgian chocolate.

    My mouth is watering in anticipation. Are we going to have to wait for better weather for this treat?

    Now I'm the one drooling all over the thread! I think we need to have a PF BBQ at Tsu and Ivan's house! :biggrin:

    I lied; bloody meat is not my favorite. It is immoral to eat bloody meat.

    For lying: Pray 30 our fathers, 25 hail marys, 20 glory be's

    For eating bloody meat: Pray the glorious mystery 10 times

    Then your sins are forgiven
