Steaks vs. Burgers

Over the years I've heard lots of folks say they like their burgers cooked more than their steaks. So what's the story with you?

I like my steaks cooked rare to med. rare and my burgers the same.

Usually the same for me, med-rare, but that could depend on where the burger meat came from.

I like steaks med rare and burgers medium. So I guess I'm one of those who like burgers a bit more done than steaks. I think part of it for me is the higher chance of e. coli in the ground beef (especially if you didn't grind it yourself).

A rare hamburger might not be cooked enough to hold together. A rare steak will always hold together.

I'll take MR for both.

When we bought part of a grass fed beef last year, the burger was really lean. Not sure if it was because the way it was raised or the parts used to make burger was just leaner. Anyway, it was at its juicy best if grilled only medium rare. Otherwise, I had not consistently had medium rare burgers previously. Usually I like medium. Medium- well to well done if its at a first time restaurant/ grill/ bar/ and Especially if you know they are using pre-formed frozen patties. Nothing wrong with that, just don't know where all they may have been shipped from. I like when you see the meat dept guy bringing out fresh ground beef to stock the meat cases. Doesn't mean a thing, they could have a semi truck backed up to the loading dock and who knows when it was ground, but it Seems Like it is tastier.

I like steaks medium rare.

I'd be hard pressed to answer which do I like better - a good steak or a good burger. I appreciate eating both.

The same, rare-med. rare, if I grind the meat myself. Medium rare to medium on the burger if I don't

You've either never had a great burger, or it's a texture issue like I have with large mushrooms. Either way I'm sorry

Just got a grinder, will have to weigh in later. I usually like mine anywhere from medium to medium rare.

I like my burgers med well and my steaks any way they come off the grill. I just consider a med ribeye and a well ribeye 2 different creatures that I enjoy just as much. I do like horseradish with the med well to well, and Salsa with med.
