Ok, I went to a party where I was told that the guy running the grill was a family member to the home owner and that he was a really, REALLY terrible cook. But that he was VERY self concious and that we should let him run the grill and don't tell him that his food sucks.

There was about 60 lbs of good ribs and a ton of Brats and chicken.... But it was soooooo burnt that the brats just turned into ash in you mouth....

The ribs were all ruined!!!!! It seriously made me angry that they let him ruin all this good meat!!!! And the worst part is that this guy actually thinks its good!



I personlly think that meat (ribs, burgers, brats, etc..) should be rare to medium rare.



How about you?

Depending on the cut and the type of meat? Very rare to well done.

Medium, what no poll?

I don't eat anything rare or medium rare. I like my steaks medium and my hamburger medium well.

Depends on the meat.

Ribs are certainly not served rare.

Yep.

I like a fine cut like a tenderloin steak done Medium rare, more fatty cuts like delmonico or ribeye done medium, as with hamburgers. Pork, chicken, etc, I prefer medium well.

I don't like either of the extremes like rare or well done.

I prefer my hooker cooked medium rare.

Beer or Pork.

It completely depends on what you're cooking. I'm not going to eat pork or hamburger as rare as I like my steaks, etc.

Knock the horns off and wipes its ass, that's it.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:51:27 AM EST
Meat should be anywhere from completely raw to well done, depending on the quality or type. Burning meat always equals fail.

You should have told him his cooking sucks. You only enabled him and further encouraged his fucked up cooking skills.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:51:34 AM EST
Well done.

I like my beef so rare that most restaurants refuse to serve it the way I want it.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:52:47 AM EST
Ribeye, filet, strip, t-bone, porterhouse, sirloin, skirt (fajita)? Medium Rare
Everything else? Cooked all the way through
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:53:09 AM EST
well
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:53:48 AM EST
I usually like steak medium to medium-well. I never eat chicken or pork that is undercooked.

Steak tartare, done correctly, is delicious, by the way.

Well done. If you can't cook a tender, well-done steak then you can't cook.
Chicken and pork should be well done also but not overcooked. Overcooked meat is dry meat.

Fish=Sushi
Steak=Rare and bleeding
Burger= medium well
Pork/chicken=well to falling of the bone.

So you like brats rare?

The main issue here may be cooking temperature. For instance steaks should be cooked at high temp to sear the outside. They're good rare if that's what you like. Ribs are cooked at very low temp for a loooooong time, so the meat falls off. They're not rare, but certainly juicy if done right.

I did in a kind of joking way.... I asked him what his idea of medium or rare is... he just said "oh, I don't like meat that light, its better this way"

I just laughed and told him "well I like to taste meat not char".


I was trying not to start him crying (he's 55, but according to his family he crys like a little french girl) and his family baby's him.

Depends on the meat. A Tuna steak? I want that raw. USDA Prime Porterhouse? Medium please. A veal Bratwurst? Well done and crispy please.

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't agree more.... I sould have used your answer for the poll!!!!
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:58:27 AM EST
I like my meat cooked... as such I like it Medium well... as in little to no pink and not bleeding.

I'll also accept medium and well done.

Well done by a good cook does not mean burnt. There should not be any more char on it than the standard gill lines. When you make something well done you have got to reduce the temperature and cook longer... not just cook longer.


If it's anything less than medium I'll send it back and say I didn't ask for sushi.

Burnt till it's crunchy on the outside, but still red and juicy on the inside.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 12:01:12 PM EST
Steak - medium
Burgers - medium
Brats - Med. well
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 12:03:25 PM EST
Everything metioned in the OP needs to be well done. Steaks, on the other hand, I like rare to medium rare depending on the cut.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 12:04:51 PM EST
Anything beef - medium. Still needs some pink in the middle, but no raw red.

Unfortunately, everyone else in my family likes everything well-done. Just tastes dried-up and nasty to me.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 12:16:24 PM EST
I won't touch pork if it isn't well-done. Steak should be rare. Hamburger, any type of ground meat, or sausage, should be completely cooked.

Link Posted: 9/17/2009 1:02:28 PM EST
Medium to medium well depending on the meat. Is there any other way
