Steak

Happy Monday Everyone!

Since today is NATIONAL PRIME RIB DAY, I wanted to talk about ordering steak in a restaurant. I have spent many years working in steakhouses, (M.A.N.Y.); below is an accurate guide of temperatures and colors, depending on how you order your steak:

*Rare (R): Cold, red center

*Medium Rare (MR): Slightly warm red center

*Medium (M): Pink center

*Medium Well (MW): Slightly pink center

*Well (W): No pink at all (think hockey puck)

When you order a steak: PICK ONE TEMPERATURE! Do not tell the server that you want it cooked “between MR and M” because the server AND the Chef are just going to pick a temperature, and it will usually be the rarer one; (because an undercooked steak can be saved while an overcooked steak just goes in the trash).

So the next time you order a steak, use this guide….it will totally help.

Thanks for reading.
