When I was little I would steal raw hamburger out of my Dad's bowl when he made something with it. Every time, loved it!
Now, if I see pink I want to barf. I'm trying to turn that around though..... my teeth may be getting old cuz chewing on shoe leather is no longer entertaining. :)

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I must admitt I have always loved it rare, as a kid when I would cook dinner I would sneak bites of the raw ground beef with a bit of salt on it...yum! But as an adult I usually agree to medium rare. Although alot of restaurants these days will now alow it to be served under medium :( such a shame. its almost as bad as someone ordering filet minion well well done! uhg!

Usually, for a plain burger, I like mine heated just enough to sear the outside and warm the pink inside. Or, to use the old diner lingo, "drag it over the coals and let it moo once."

Yeah, deelady - I'm another raw burger sampler.

Best Steak Tartare

  • The Café at Country 90 Madison Ave., 212-889-7100

    Geoffrey Zakarian isn’t the only chef in town who’s reinventing the great raw-beef classic (Gray Kunz serves a version at Café Gray, John LaFemina offers one at the Orchard). It’s just that Zakarian is doing it best. At the Café at Country, Zakarian and executive chef Doug Psaltis hand-chop organic beef tenderloin until it’s velvety smooth, then spice it with the unexpected addition of pickled chanterelles. A quail-egg yolk is nestled on top of the meat, and the dish is topped with a quenelle of crème fraîche and Dijon mustard. The whole savory, slippery deal is presented in a chilled Mason jar, for a nice rustic effect.

I like mine medium but if you want it barely cooked, if you grind it yourself (food processor works nicely) it shouldn't be a problem.

I cook mine medium rare these days,
But when I was a kid working at the slaughter house, we used to grind up top round, mix in raw onion, salt and pepper and eat it raw on rye bread.

I have ate raw hamburger as a kid.... loved it. Probably would not do it today. Anyhow, I like my burgers medium.
