    That was an...interesting night.

    But awesome steak at Bobby Flay's. A little off putting though that they brought out their own sauce with the steak, which immediately made me regret coming to this place - but it was an excellent steak nonetheless. Medium rare was actually perfectly medium rare, instead of medium that you'd get in most, even upscale, steak places.

    This is proper medium rare:



    They season the steak, which is another thing I'd normally find very off putting (a prime steak's seasoning should maybe consist of salt...sprinkled conservatively..). But it made the crust very hard and tasted really nice. So overall, a different, but excellent type of prime steak. It's no Peter Luger, but definitely recommended if you guys visit Atlantic City (the steakhouse is in the Borgata casino).

    I have absolutely no idea why people like their steak rare. Still the greatest thing ever obviously, because it's steak, but what's the big deal? It's just very slightly chewier and more annoying to eat.

    If your rare steak is chewy, you need to find another restaurant. A prime steak has so much marbling throughout that it should just melt in your mouth. Of course, lower grade beef can be quite chewy.

    Well maybe, but being a carnivorous maniac I've given rare steak plenty of shots at expensive restaurants all over the world, and it's always been a bit sub-standard, even when I've had it in the same place medium or well done before and it's been glorious. Might just be one of those things it's seriously difficult to get right.

    Pisses me off no end when I order a well done steak and they bring it rare anyway. What the **** gives them the right? It's like ordering steak and being brought a salmon instead because the chef thinks it tastes better. And his opinion is obviously better than yours.

    Have you tried the Grill on the Alley, just off John Dalton St (I think - can ne'er remember street names in town....) and King st.... on a little side road that links the two..... Apparently some damn good steaks in there, just be prepared to pay upto 60-70 for the best.

    Most of the really good steakhouses will not serve a well done steak, they'll outright refuse it. Well done is chewy as hell. Mainly because there is no point in buying a well done expensive steak - all the fat and marbling (the things that separate prime for other grades of beef) goes away so you're really paying for nothing.

    You need to come to the US for the best steaks (I don't know if you've had it here).

    Yea, I'm not sure how grading works in the UK, but something like 1% of beef is rated prime and it all gets taken by the best restaurants. So unfortunately, don't expect a visit to cost less than $80 per person not including wine.

    I've never found rarer steak chewier, the opposite in fact. If it's blue or raw it's chewy, but rare/medium rare and it's delightful. And the reason people like it better is because it has more flavour than when it's well done.

    FWIW I fully back the chefs who send it out medium or below when you've ordered it well done. Go and eat some beef crisps ****

    Haha AWTA. Obviously you have the right to like whatever steak you want, but as a Chef, he has a reputation too (other than being an ass)...if he is not happy with putting his name behind chewy well done ****, he won't send it out. So yea, if you goto Outback Steakhouse, you can order that crap whatever way you like - but a real steakhouse with prominent chefs may not serve you well done steaks.

    Again, there is no point in having it well done and paying $100 for it....the whole point of paying for a pricier steak is negated if you burn away the things that make it pricey (e.g, the marbling and the fat).

    Paid 6 bucks to join this forum as I'd come across it quite a bit in my research and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. What a waste of money.

    TBH I'd say it applies even with a 5 pub steak
