    Just a basic pic for those who have no clue what is what.

    That said, my version of "medium" is somewhere between the pic's medium rare and medium...
    There seems to be a big difference in the medium rare and the medium. To me medium rare is pink most of the way through but that pic looks like it is raw in the middle. On the other hand the medium looks a bit over done

Also took me months to be able to have poached eggs again, which I've always loved, without gagging.

    Med rare. Always order it this way so if it's over cooked, it's still medium. Hate eating with il's who buy cheap minute or round steak and cook it until you could use it as a frisbee. Gross!!

    Rare for me, I like it juicy and tasty. I don't like cardboard

    I sometimes go through phases where I could eat it raw, I suspect I'm low in iron during those phases.

    And as for worms being in rare steak, they would still be in well cooked steak, just cooked. Meh, it's all protein I say

    Depends on the steak. A supermarket one I do medium well (ours doesnt have great quality) When I get a nice porterhouse or rump from the butcher (or restaurant) I like medium to medium rare, the flavour is so much nicer and the meat tender.
    When blood runs out of it it's too rare for me.
