How well do you like your steak?

Just wondering how well everyone here likes their steak?

I like mine medium or medium well-done.

med rare unless chef suggests otherwise because of the cut or meat (venison, elk etc)

Medium rare, for me.

Most steaks I like with a cool center. Some cuts you can't do that so rare will do. A GOOD filet, however, I want a VERY cold center and pretty much just black and blue.

Medium rare. If a steak is well done I don't see much point in eating it really.
I started life with nothing and still have most of it left...

I freeze my steaks, even if I get them fresh. I put them on the highest and hottest part of my grill. 4 minutes, turn 3 minutes. When I stick a fork in it is has to go "Moo":. If not, it is overdone.
Happy cooking, Marty.

Rare to medium rare.

Very rare to medium rare, depending upon the cut and thickness. Never more. In France I order steak "Saignant," which translates to "bloody!"
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Medium, though I can handle medium rare. I don't like them bloody or grey, just a nice pink inside.
