When proposing the question in our group chat, Gizmodo's editor Cam replied with the following: rare or medium rare. That's how you have your steak - not how Cam has his steak, but how everyone should have their steak, and any other answer was invalid.
But I know some people who, to quote my darling mother, like their meat dead. Burnt beyond the grave and into the next dimension, as it were. And sometimes it's a practical consideration, too. One of our commercial editors - not Tegan - who's currently pregnant can't have any meat that isn't well done, thanks to gestational diabetes.
And then there are different types of meat. Pork and lamb aren't really meant to be had rare, and certainly not anything less than that. Kangaroo, on the other hand, turns to crap if it's anything but rare. And then there's different ways to treating the meat entirely, where it's given several different treatments so that the meat itself is well done but the texture becomes an experience in its own.
How do you like your steak? And how do you like other meats and cuts?
