I have the same situation with my wife. In addition to her preferring well done, her entire family will not touch any meat at all thats not burned to a crisp. In fact, my BIL makes a point (for me) when ordering a steak, to tell the wait person to "burn it".
He says it real loud and looks around to make sure everyone heard him.
I pan sear the thick steak on both sides, then put in 350 oven for 6 minutes. I then let it rest for at least 10 minutes.
I then slice it into 1/4" slices and put my wifes slices back into the hot pan for a minute or two on each side.
Its made life much easier for me. It was difficult to ruin a whole steak for her. Now I just ruin the few slices she eats.......
