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".

Off-topic: I only just now realized the connection between your username and your location. I've always wondered about your location, but now that I actually saw your username, it all makes sense.  :rofl: /me is slow.

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.

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 ? point.

Al dente for my pasta, ? 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 ? 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.
