    Always liked mine 'well done' up until recently, now I find that I prefer my steaks more pink than brown, so I guess I'm more of a medium to medium/rare. Depends which restaurant cooks it for you!
  3. medium rare definately!! tis the way it should be!!

    What's next, Ian?

    Chips/Salad or New potatoes/Veg Poll?
    Favourite Sauce - Pepper, Diane, Blue Cheese?
    :D ;)

    [PS Medium rare, unless it's superb quality in which case just take off the horns and wipe its butt]

    The sight of blood or red stuff in the steak is minging!!!! :frown:

    (if we're going down the sauce line then its gotta be Peppercorn)

    Nice and charred on the outside, pink to red (but not with blood running) on the inside.

    Rubbed with lemon pepper if I can get it . . .

    You mean in the coals? I generally put the steak on top of the grill. Or do y'all have upside-down grills over there?

    Well done!! :) Although I know that's not the way it's meant to be...but I don't like blood..!

    What you call a grill we'd call a barbeque. A grill in the UK means a heating element above the food, often built into a standard oven. Don't know what y'all call those over there..;)

    Hence my confusion. Over here, that's generally called a broiler. Broiler = flames above, grill = flames below. We also use the term barbeque as the same as grill, but often it also means a particular style of cooking rather than simply the implement.

    Either is a fine way to cook a steak!

    A broiler? :confused:

    Like mine medium-rare - nice and juicy!

    Good topic ;-) just come in from a meal out, Sirloin Steak with Stilton, topped with Peppercorn sauce - Very good indeed, Medium Rare, altough it was a little underdone! Still lovely and juicy. Also I think they'd run out of Sirloin I've a sneaky idea it was a Rump, but no-one bothered to tell me! - Bad Resteraunt manners, I hate that!

    Has to be rare! Although most restaurants, especially in America say the lowest they will do is medium rare....ridiculous!!! The best way to cook it is to season both sides with some decent pepper and stuff, then sling it in a really hot griddle pan, just sear it on both sides and thats all you need, then you cut it and its lovely and juicy...and ******!
