I am so happy you are back at it. We missed you.

I had a few beers the other night...I was Medium Well. Without your chart I still wouldn't know that!

I honestly can't tell the difference between one "steak doneness" and another.

I prefer medium or medium rare...but what always gets me is watching cooking shows, when good chefs (Ramsay does this all the time) can discern a steak's degree of done-ness by touching them to see how squishy they are. I'll never figure that one out.

They missed "Chicago" style.

Al, I have never had a thought like that in my life.

Kelly, I was taught doneness by touch by poking your own hand. Poke between your thumb and pointer finger on the back of your hand, with had relaxed rare,open flat medium rare, fingers pulled up beyond flat medium to medium -well. Anyone asks for steak more than that, just serve them a shoe.

I ask for medium and always get Medium rare. guess some folks are just in a hurry to get food on tables.
