I'm another of those "somewhere between rare and medium rare. I want it hot, but red in color. I tolerate pink, and can even eat it well done. But if it's a steak, my choice is hot and red, with lots of grilled flavor, some saltiness, and jsut a touch of either A1 Steak sauce (peppery and good), or coarse grind black pepper. And my favorite cut is bone-in rib steak, about the third one back from the chuck, and of coarse it must be corn-fed, and preferably, aged.

That is my ideal.

Some place between rare and medium rare. It must (!!!) have a redish pink centre and juices that still ooze with blood (morbid as that sounds, in a way). I love the softenss of a rare to medium rare steak, its texture seems to almost melt in your mouth if cooked with care (a good cut of beef to begin with helps a lot too). The same goes for my taste in roast beef and lamb, I even like my dust breasts a little on the pink side.

One story that always sticks in my mind when this subject comes up is a time when I was a young waitress and a group of Australian travelers all ordered steak. As I went round the table to ask how they'd like their steak cooked one gentleman replied "still on the hoof", which I in turn wrote down as "blue". He got what he asked for and was very pleased with it.
