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

No idea, I don't know what is and isn't considered a cheap cut.....I use A1 because I love the flavor it has (I think it runs in the family, my mother and her father both love A1 as well), not because I don't like the taste of the meat, I just like the taste of A1 better.

I don't eat pasta, but my steak, rare or medium-rare is the only way to go :D

Al dente and medium-rare are going to win.

I prefer al dante for pasta. For steak I used to prefer well done, but in recent years I've come to enjoy steak à point.

Al dente for my pasta, à point for my steak (which is how it's supposed to be!). (= medium-rare)

 

Many steak places here in Belgium don't offer anything over à point.

Then why even have the steak at all?  Might as well throw A1 on fries or crackers and eat away.

 

Honestly though, I was at a fine Kansas City steak house..  Jokingly said, could you get me some A1.  I swear the restaurant went silent.  For a walmart steak, sure.

All floppy andbextremely spicy for my pasta.
As for steak, rare or none. If it's overcooked, I'll order a salad.

I enjoy the texture of well-cooked meat rather than the flavor, putting A1 on something other than meat means I wouldn't be eating meat.

 

That being said, I rarely go out to eat, and even more rare, to a steak house. Most of the steak I do eat comes from wal mart or sams club. I'm more of a burger person myself honestly, when I go out to eat I'll order a burger before I order a steak, but that's just me.

I grew up eating steak well done, if it is slow cooked medium rare is fine but it's all about texture..

 

I don't want to bite into a piece of meat and have it be the texture of jelly, or taste TOO much like blood.

 

Pink is fine as long as it is cooked pink, not raw pink :p  These days I order medium-well so they don't get ###### off and turn my meat into stone.

 

Pasta is either crunchy, good, or sloppy.  I like it good.

I usually eat both with a fork. :p

 

As for how I prefer them cooked:

Al Dente for pasta 

rare to mid-rare for steaks depending on the cut.
