I would like to chime in here and try to answer Toasty’s question as to why people like thier steak medium to medium-well, my theroy anyway, from personal experience.
First let me state that the wifey and I like ’em medium rare.
At one point in my life when I was younger, i thought that I would get sick if I ate an “uncooked” steak, that had blood oozing out of it when I cut it. I was really turned off by the sight of it, so I would cook them to medium-well to well done.
Then I met my wife who like’s them medium rare, and I must say it slowly took me over the course of a couple of years, to convert to meduim rare, along with some education that I will not get “sick” if eating a steak that is medium-rare.
So to sum up, part of it may lay in the visual sense of a bloody steak, and another part is that it is unhealthy (get sick, trip to te hospital) to eat a steak that that is not “fully cooked”, which is not true.
Just my two cents is all….
