I'm still waiting for my daughters and SILs to at least try a good cut of beef cooked to med rare. I respect their tastes and don't say anything, but I sure wish they would give it a try and maybe see what they're missing out on. Worked for me many, many years ago.

Grandchildren fill the space in your heart you never knew was empty.

I remember my dad grilling steak and saying emphatically "three minutes on one side, two minutes on the other." Thanks, Dad!

I remember my mom saying "Lee, if you over cook my steak there will be hell to pay!"
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I remember when I was converted from a "well done" eater to a "rare to medium rare" eater. I was about 7 or 8. We were in a restaurant. My hamburger arrived medium rare. "Mommy, my hamburger isn't cooked enough." "Put some salt and pepper on it and try it." Oh yeah, that was yummy.

I think the reason why the roast overcooked after sitting all day in a 145F oven was probably because I cooked it a bit too long initially at 500F, plus the high residual heat before the oven settled down to 145F.
