    Well really it depends on the cut of the meat you are eating.

    If ribeye not below medium, the fat running through it needs to be cooked at least to medium for the full flavour to be appreciated.

    If fillet though then rare is the way to go.
    I've been experimenting with ribeye a lot recently.

    Really quick ribeye sandwich I made. Polish Sourdough with a light drizzle of olive oil, lightly grilled. Mayo/musturd mix, sliced sweet pickle and fried shallots.

    I get the pan really, really hot (practically smoking) and then when the ribeye hits the pan, the fat renders out really quickly. Okay, I'll admit, it's still slightly chewy from the fat that hasn't melted completely but I just can't eat a medium steak, I can't do it Em.

    If you get hold of a fillet and you cook it anything harder than medium rare then we just can't be friends. I agree with you: rare.

    I've not actually eaten it raw :lol: Though I have an Italian-born friend who eats raw minced beef regularly but says it has to be as fresh as possible. I normally have my steak medium-rare or slightly less cooked. I've also eaten raw chicken tikka by accident and was fine though :lol:

    Does it still taste nice. I just cannot...
    I'd throw up at the sight of an uncooked looking steak with blood dripping
    Tastes better

    So rare it practically still has a heartbeat.

    I remember once in South Africa I was talking with a South African who liked his steak well done, had a long debate about this and a Kenyan just piped up, "Hang on... the englishman is saying he likes his meat rare and the south african is saying he likes his steak well done... what parallel universe did I walk into?

    You can eat most meats raw (well not raw but rare) But yeah, it has to be extremely fresh. I've had steak from Argentina that was the rawest thing I've ever eaten, it was fried for about 5 seconds a side, seasoned with pink sea salt and pepper and then served. Orgasmic.

    Medium rare ftw!!!

    Fillet steak all the way, I hate fat on steak no matter what people say about flavour. And venison steak is just amazing!

    The best steaks I've ever had have always been abroad, in Majorca I'm pretty sure pink salt was used but still can't find one with the same amazing flavour.

    Mine needs to be proper cooked,I wonder how people manage to eat theirs with blood dripping
    It's not actually blood so I'm told, and steak's a fairly safe cut of meat, compared to mince etc which needs to be cooked all of the way through.

    I reckon it's probably safe to munch it raw, although probably a little less than desirable

    Yeah, apparently a quick fry of each side kills the bacteria and you're all good Though I've had undercooked liver and it gave me food poisoning, put me off it for life :lol:

    I find that you can really bend the rules with most foods without getting an upset stomach. I literally just use my ears and eyes, if something's obviously off chuck it by I often ignore sell by dates with no repercussions. Milk for instance is fine for ages, even when it smells.

    Mince (supermarket mince) is usually loads of cheap cuts mixed all together. If you make it yourself or get it from a butcher and know the origin of the meat then it will be relatively safe to eat.
