For me:

 

Pasta - Al dente.

Steak - Medium rare (although more on the medium side).

 

Just wondering...

Al dente, medium rare. For steaks anyway, there is no wrong way to eat it. Pasta on the other hand...

Al dente, and well done (I'll eat steak cooked medium, but I prefer red meats medium-well to well-done).

Al dente for the pasta. For steaks there's medium rare and then there's garbage... anything else and it's either tough and dry (leather) or it's still chomping on grass. That could be considered opinion though.

That would be considered opinion yes. For me it's Well Done because I believe that after mankind discovered fire, meat shouldn't have to taste like blood  :rofl:

So wrong. Anything over medium is a travesty to beef.

I like my meat cooked well enough it basically falls apart in your mouth....yes it is dry, but I usually use A1 on it anyway. I do enjoy pink meat, just not the kind you put on a grill.

A1?  I hope thats only for cheap cuts of beef! 

 

Medium - only thing I need to cook a steak is salt/pepper/butter (maybe a touch of garlic)

Pasta - al dente

Actually he is correct, as long as it physically doesn't give you food poisoning, there is no "correct" grade of cooked. It's a travesty because you don't like it? I don't enjoy eating medium or below, it doesn't mean I'll accuse other people of being wrong.

 

My friend only eats Blue-Rare, the damn thing looks like jelly inside, we were in a restaurant once and when asked how he wanted it he replied "Just give the Cow a slap and send it through". He also accuses anyone of eating it anything other than blue-rare of having Steak "wrong".
