There are exceptions....

I like a hot pink center. Chefs vary in their interpretation of doneness. I like a hot pink center, no blood. I will not eat a steak swimming in blood. Not until I got a Webber, could I produce a juicy steak with a hot pink center, no blood.

Med rare for me. There was a time in my life when any red would gross me out, but thankfully I got over that. There was also a time when the thought of raw fish made me want to , but now that is a favorite of mine.

I chose medium rare, mainly because medium wasn't an option. Frankly, I like it somewhere in between med rare and med. I'll tolerate medium or above slightly, but I don't care for hockey pucks.

Med-rare to medium here. I like a lot of juices, and I don't mind blood. I am a carnivore, but not to the point that rare or black-and-bleu is my thing, at least, not yet

Medium-rare all the way.....a couple of nights ago my bro grilled up some steaks, and they were "almost rare". I couldn't eat the center part because the collagen hadn't even had a chance to break down yet, very disappointing.

lol, that's the ticket.

a buddy always orders his steaks "knock th horns off, wipe it's butt and plate the sucker".

for me, it depends on the cut, but i'm a rare to medium rare guy, with almost all meats. i used to drink the blood from the packages of meat when i was a kid, so anything more than medium tastes like tanned leather to me.

btw, irishmen are famous for ordering shoe leather steaks, extra well done. i cried (in my beer ) every time we went out forn dinner and they'd order it that way.
