Steak Should Never Be Cooked to Well-Done

Many people like steak. The secret is to buy a good piece of meat, season it to your taste (but salt & pepper is all that’s really necessary) and then sear it on one side, and then the other, to your liking, somewhere between rare and medium.

What you don’t do is cook it to well-done. “But,” you protest, “that’s how I like it.” Then, you, sir or madam, are a philistine. You like food that is overcooked until it is ruined. In fact, you probably don’t actually like steak. You think you do, and then you go and ruin a perfectly good piece of steak. So, go eat some chicken.

I like steak medium to medium well so guess I’m not completely damned. Phew that was close.

I like it medium well, but order it well done if I don’t trust the restaurant.  At least well done guarantees it’s all dead.

Steak should be cooked how the person eating it wants it to be cooked.

I completely agree. Well-done steak is garbage. Anyone who has deleted that way has very immature taste. Medium rare and 30° is about as cooked as it should be.

True. No more than medium.
