Comment on How to Cook a Steak Perfectly Every Time by jack.
This is why I don’t order steak at restaurants, it seems like the world believes there are only two options for cooking a steak, rare or burnt leather…..I really really hate the taste and texture of a steak cooked anything less than medium. There is something really off about it, and it makes me sick to the point of gagging. I don’t know what it is, the only way I can describe it is for me it is like really wet, lukewarm in the middle, sort of dissolves but sort of not, like a really firm meat jello. Hard to explain, but it is gross, which totally ruins any delicious exterior crunchy crusty goodness that may have been achieved. I also hate noticeable fat on my steak, again the texture is absolutely sickening to me. Granted I don’t like overly well done steak either. It has nothing to do with fear or being grossed out trust me, not with what I do for a living. I just can’t eat a steak that isn’t medium, something about biting into it, and that texture just absolutely makes my stomach turn. Bread pudding and soggy cereal has the same effect on me, I certainly can’t help that a steak cooked rare makes me nauseous. I don’t see how my opinion means I can’t enjoy your website… or even utilize aspects of your technique… I agree with Memoria “Ah, the advantage of cooking your own food without anyone judging as you make it”
