I always tell the server that I want my steak rare, not raw, but now that several of you have used the term "blue", I'll change my order to "red, not blue" It expresses my wishes much more clearly.

That's one of the reason I love DC. Tidbits of knowledge.

So what should the core temperature be ?

Do we follow guidelines as stipulated by the government or throw them out of the window ?

Whether or not you choose to follow the fed's guidelines is a personal decision.

The internal temp of a steak would be determined by how "done" you want it.



Doneness Temperatures

Rare 127 F

Medium Rare 135 - 140 F

Medium 141 - 145 F

Medium Well 146 - 150 F

Well Done 150+


For steaks, you should take them off the heat about 5 degrees cooler than these temps and let them rest for 5-10 minutes to finish cooking.

Last night we had Rump with a salt and pepper crust, sliced on ciabatta rolls with lots of fried onions and Horseradish sauce.

Guess the temp, celcius please

Bolas, my estimation would be approximately 49 cel. or 120 deg.

Maybe a few less than 49/120. That looks very rare.

most places i've worked in dont allow the customers to have blue steak, but ya know you'll do one every now and then to please the customer, mainly to the fact that i like my steak rare ;)

just depends whether the meat has been frozen or not, our place sells salmon, but its bought in frozen and we can't undercook it, so we cant deliver want the customer wants some times

For me, I want my steak well done. I think, it should be 165 F.
