    How do you like your steak?

    I obviously like mine rare. I like to taste the blood. In fact, I slurped up the puddle of it you see in the picture kind of like drinking milk from the cereal bowl

    Uck.. rare.. well, at least you cut off that gross fat.

    I'm happy with well, or medium, but a light pink center is the best.. not bloody though.

    Looks like it's still mooing.

    That's a yummy lookin steak. I'm not so hardcore that I'd drink the blood (though with my nocturnal schedule my wife might say otherwise...) but my direction to the waiter is usually "Stab it and cut off a hunk before it stops moo-in".

    Not much of a steak lover, personally, but when I do have it, well done. I'd say most (like maybe 95%) of the meat I consume is chicken breast, about 4.5% is pork, and the rest, 'other' (fish, beef, etc). Even so, I only eat meat once a week or so. So I guess I'm sort of quasi-vegetarian.

    I'm surprised you use a knife and fork...
    I've had steak too often to enjoy it anymore, but I'd be medium-ish.

    Sometimes I'll go Black and Blue, but usually rare/medium rare.

    You won't even sit down at the table for a nice steak?
    I copied it from the last program in which I passed a parameter, which would have been pre-1989 I guess. - esbo

    No wonder you are a shopnatural reader.

    I like the taste of blood, just not that much. I need it medium rare and bloody. Why I prefer fat steaks. I can get the best of both worlds. And I also move the fat to the side (Yuck!).

    EDIT: Kudos on the knife.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I don't have a table, just my computer desk, the only other furniture I own is my bed and my weight bench.

    I actually prefer to eat the fat but I've been trying to lose some weight.

    Good for you, man. Not much nutritional value there, anyway.

    I used to eat it rare, then I liked it medium-rare, now I like it medium... But I define this in terms of texture, not color.

    A cheap sirloin, cooked medium, will have just a hint of pink and chew somewhat like rubber. A nice New York strip cooked to the same pinkness will be practically falling apart.

    I judge steak doneness by poking it with my finger. People who cut the steak while cooking it are insane.

    I've cooked a $75 cut of steak with only moderate nervousness. I do not screw up when cooking steak any more.

    Abachler, do you marinade or apply a dry rub, or just cook it as-is?
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Medium rare here.

    I don't mind some blood, but not a huge puddle.

    That knife looks over-engineered for the job at hand.

    For me steak only has 2 states - cat food (raw) and human food (well). And I usually wrap it in aluminium foil, add tomato/cucumber/bell pepper slices inside the foil to keep the meat juicy, put it in the oven and cook it for around an hour.
