You forgot Medium Rare, which is how most people prefer it.
I like my vegans burnt to a crisp.
Medium rare, hon.
Medium is medium rare, isn't it?

Don't you people eat tofu in place of meat? How do you eat that? Rare, medium, medium well, or well done?
Black and Blue, of course.
What are you all, closet vegetarians?
Black and Blue vs. Pittsburgh Style
R8 - actually, I prefer "fried" tofu with a resistant (I would say "crunchy" exactly) texture, rather than mushy bricks. As far as beef goes, I generally order medium well, although for thinner cuts, medium works better. Anything less is far too ... chewy for me!
Medium rare is considered to be the best way to serve steak and lamb. Other meats such as chicken and pork should be cooked through.
My Morningstar meatless patty don't give a shit. Tastes like delicious 'natural flavorings from vegetarian sources' regardless.
Rare, rare, rare! In fact if you could uncook it that would be great! (see how cool I am, I do eat meat and love it rare)
Medium rare always
Whenever a waitron asks me how I like my steak, I reply "just the way I like it!"
Then I make them waste about five minutes guessing what that is.
Fun times for all concerned!
Try the soy burger.
Pittsburgh style is the same thing the Cajuns used to call "blackened" isn't it?
Doesn't that mean a lot of pepper?
I'll have whatever R4 is having.
It is considered OK to eat pork rare these days. Trichinosis has not been a problem for many many years.
The blackened items I am familiar with use finely ground coffee.....
Well who wants to eat burnt coffee meat?!
Upping this recent thread given that a similar thread was just posted.
Medium rare or medium well depending on my mood. Well-done steak is an insult to the cow, and the cooking skills of a chef.
Surprisingly enough, I've never had steak.
Live monkey brains rare
Medium rare for steak (the way Jesus liked his).
All other beef- well done.
I don't eat any animal product that is raw or undercooked. This includes eggs and fish.

R13, I prefer Boca Burgers, which "blend nutritious soy with delicious extras like garden fresh veggies, cheeses and seasonings into a hearty patty that's a good source of fiber and protein".
Another vote for Pittsburgh Style.
Tartare: I like it raw.
I'd hate to be anywhere down wind of R13 and R33 after they've eaten their soy burgers.
Cat Cora said a steak should be eaten rare. So, I tried it rare and liked it.
Oh, and she said she doesn't understand deep dish pizza.
Seafood lover who also tried ceviche because of Top Chef, but I didn't like it at all. And, it was served with chips. I thought that was odd.
Cooked, thank you.
R38, would that be a pizza pie?
Darling, rare meat is good for you. The doctor said so. Christina, meat loses its vitamins if it's over cooked.
if it can't be eaten medium rare then it's not worth eating
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
