A British oven grill is the same thing as an American oven broiler.

How I wish I could get my wife and MIL to understand this.
I have purposely quit buying good steaks because they insist on well done.
Even a hint of pink will send them away from the table.

We were in Costco the other day and I bought only one pack of sirloin steaks. I left the NY Strip and Rib Eye's behind.
I am sick and tired of having to ruin a beautiful steak.
I told my wife that from now on, I will make a pot roast for them and the steaks are for me. It was rude and a bit crude to say it to her. But I did mean it.

I can't blame you. I feel the same way. I'm doing a beautiful boneless rib roast for Christmas dinner, and I have an eclectic group of 10 people, at least a couple of whom come from the school of thought that medium is barely cooked (and well done is better), yet I'll be danged if I'll ruin a 14 pound roast for them. I'll shoot for medium rare and they can fight over the end pieces.

Cook the roast to med rare. Folks who like their's well done (like half my family) can take their slices and stick them in the microwave for one minute. Everyone's happy this way. The microwaved slices even stay moist. :)

We have a "well done" person too. He'll get the end slices.

My end slices are never enough. We have a bunch of "well done" people.

My daughter was telling me this story other day where she and her colleagues during a recent business trip to NY went to Peter Lugers for dinner. When she ordered her steak well done she told me the entire table went dead silent.

If your roast is big enough, cut it in half before cooking and you'll have twice as many end slices.
