Al Dente and Medium well, most decent cuts come out great and most of the time medium rare is just raw

Steak should still be capable of feeling pain when you bite into it. If it's more than cool in the center, it's utterly ruined.

 

Pasta depends on the dish, sauce, and serving temperature.

Medium-rare steak is so juicy, so tender, so delicious and . . . Ahem, I'm sorry, where were we? Right. Al dente pasta is the best form of pasta, in my humble opinion. Raw pasta defeats the purpose, and floppy turns it into, well, soup.

Pasta: As soft as I can cook it. Steak: Brown all the way through but still juicy so medium

That's well done. If it's cooked long that it's not juicy at all, that's just called over cooked. :laugh: Even medium-well should have a hint of pink left.

 

A lot of people confuse well done and over cooked, and while I do think that well done IS over cooked to me, you can still cook a steak well done and not have it turn out like a shoe. It's just that most people that like well done do cook theirs like a shoe. Example, my mom. She also likes her eggs cooked well enough to bounce off the floor if you drop them, hahah.

Al dente and medium-rare. Anyone who wants their steak well done deserves a slap imho.

Not much of meat eater as I can't stand the work out from chewing so much! Don't think I've ever had a steak that wasn't chewy as heck! Even the most tender steak is to chewy for me, but when I do have one, it's usually medium to medium well and I don't have a clue as to what al denta means even, so I voted cooked all floppy there.

 

Also,

A MUST HAVE for A1 or some type steak sauce. Most of any meat I eat needs that extra little wang on it!

That's funny, I think the same about people who try and push Opinions.

I usually do pasta al dente. I prefer beef steaks and patties mostly raw.
