If I am not certain as to the chef or cooking at the restaurant, I usually order it rare just in case. Better to eat raw, than to eat well done IMO. Plus, they would rather throw it back on the grill than have to make you a new steak. I think? LOL

I like my steaks rare or medium rare. I don't mind if the steak is blue. I always ask for rare or blue, until I know the way the particular resto interprets the various terms for doneness.

I send stuff back, but I try to be polite about it. Do you have whole wheat bread? Is that real mayo, not salad dressing or Miracle Whip?

My ex used to get embarrassed about me sending stuff back. Then one day the server asked, "French fries or mashed?" I asked if it was real mashed or powdered. Ex-DH stared daggers at me and kicked me under the table. She replied, "Oh, they're from powder." Ex-DH very sheepishly asked for fries. He started sending stuff back that wasn't the way he had ordered it.

Cool and pink inside is rare, warm and pink inside is medium rare, and cooked all the way through is medium.

If she wants a Louisiana steak, I would use a dry rub, either Cajun or Creole.

Creole Spice Rub
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon greshly ground black pepper

Cajun Spice Rub
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

I stand corrected Sir Loin. I make Cajun seasoning, not creole. The mix you posted is like what I mix up. Actually the exact ingredients, but differing amounts.
