Not gonna lie, I used to be one of the people that would order my steak well done at restaurants. But then I tasted what steak actually tastes like and came to my senses.
However, apparently ordering steak well done is a thing that a lot of people do!
According to a new survey, the most popular way to order steaks in this country is well done!
24% of people say it’s their favorite way to order. It just beat out medium-rare, which got 23% of the vote. 16% go medium-well, 13% pick medium, 11% want rare and 2% order BLUE RARE (which is even rarer than rare). I think that I’m comfortable with somewhere around medium (which, to me, is a little bit of pink).
By the way, women are almost 50% more likely to order a steak well done than men.
The survey also found that the most popular way to cook burgers is also well done. 40% of people say that’s how they like their burgers. I will say that most of my burgers end up coming off the grill nearly well done… but that’s not on purpose, that’s just because I don’t know how to grill. :\
How do you take your steak/burgers?
