Wow, I guess I have to be different. I have to have no pink inside. I can't have it mooing at me while I'm eating it. I can sometimes handle medium well, but it has to be well done!

Medium-rare to rare, although I will eat medium. Anything more and I find the meat to be tough and to have lost most of its beef flavor. I also prefer the texture of rarer beef.

As for freezing, I find that degrades the texture of most cuts, giving the meat a somewhat powdery characteristic.

Medium rare or medium. Depends on where I'm at. At home I generally cook them to medium rare.

Depending on the cut, very rare to medium rare. No marinade, no spices, just a little salt, please.

I'll eat them just about anyhow, but prefer medium rare.
