Hi all :wve:

I had steak last night - rarer than I have ever had it before, it was raw in the middle and yet lovely!

Does anyone like a nice steak? Apologies if you are vegetarian, no offence meant!

How do you like your steak cooked?

For about 5 years I am a vegetarian:jmp: HURRAAAAYYY...before that I liked stake to be a little raw...:)

I haven't had it in years, I think...! But I'm not a big fan of meat, so it would DEFINITELY have to be well done! Not raw! It's bad enough for me to think of eating a corpse, raw would be utterly disgusting! (No offence):p

I always ask for mine, "well done and well done again".

If i had to eat a steak rare, i'd be vegetarian.:(

Other Phrases i use when ordering steak:

Cremated
Burn to a crisp
Leave it bloody and i'll leave you the same way!.:D etc.

I like mine well-done so it's almost black. :cln: Can't stand rare steak (sorry Sugs :D), oozing blood and still uncooked in the middle. http://www.planetsmilies.com/smilies/sick/sick0012.gif

I like mine medium rare usually a nice piece of Eye Fillet or Scotch Fillet or even New York Cut Sirloin. Preferably with heaps of Bernaise Sauce. Yummy. Damn I'm hungry and I think I will have to go and get something for dinner. I had a meeting tonight so it will just be some of the frozen mini quiche, cheese and onion rolls and mini beef pies I got this afternoon.

How are you tonight Lo. Thanks for the sentiment on Jacob's thread.

I'm good thanks Kate and you're welcome for the comment, you are right in what you said :hug:

I usually eat mine medium rare but as this was a thicker cut it wasn't cooked properly in the middle but I was too starving to care :D

Hope you had a nice day Kate and a good meeting. Hmm finger buffet food, lurvely :D

I've never ordered a steak, but if I did, it'd be well done. Now I've got a craving for a big juicy steak :jmp:

I'm not keen on well-done meat. The worst would be chicken if accidentally forgotten in the oven! It goes all stringy. Maybe I like my meat tender because I don't have a decent steak knife to my name! I've been known to use a bread knife before now to cut some over-done roast beef :D

Tramp
24-04-06, 11:28
I used to always hear my neighbour on the weekend yelling out 'Andrew this is a Barbecue not a Bloody Cremation'.

It's a new product out Lo. It's called French Finger Food. The mini pies are beef and burgundy, quiche lorraine and cheese and onion nibbles. Smells lovely and only 4 minutes at medium in the microwave.

Day wasn't too bad, got most of the raw material out of the car. Will get the rest out tomorrow and make the 2 batches I need for Wednesday. Then make the rest for Sunday. Ugh.

SUGARPIE
24-04-06, 11:37
Gosh you sound to have your 'plate' full there Kate (no pun intended :D )

This minature food is rather nice. I used to bake mini pies and stuff. I also have a Breville Pie Magic in the attic. I use the yorkshire pudding tray to make mini-quiches - ideal for that.

The loveliest things I ever tasted as mini-desserts were from ASDA two Christmases ago. My brother brought home some miniature meringues with three varying fillings. Rasberry and cream, a toffee and nut sticky filling and strawberries. As one who is not a great sweet-eater I found them just about right in sweetness and size. However, it has to be observed that we tend to consume more when eating 'nibbles', it's a bit deceiving!

I just love vol-au-vents stuffed with fresh fish although I am not at all keen on Sushi. Fish has to be cooked and quite meaty where I am concerned!

Rare to Medium

If you have a steak well done, you might as well just have a couple slices of beef instead.

So very true. It loses it's flavour and it's texture when overcooked. Overcooked beef is tantamount to chewing on an old plimpsole :D

Guess what - I have taken pics of me for the avatar thread or should I say my neighbour's boyfriend took them in her presence but plugging in the USB camera lead in was what started off my computer crash again yesterday. The cable had to go back in before I could reboot successfully but I am in no way going to attach the lead to the camera lest it dies on me again.

You'll have to wait for my pic :( I'll edit my first post to include it once my new battery has been ordered, has arrived and been installed.) My bro is going to talk me through the procedure over the phone *dons intelligent goggles and gets screwdriver and latex gloves out* :D

Yep, I use prime butter and a good dose of garlic cloves too :D

I cook it for slightly longer because the onions need to soften but you don't get all those lumps of fat and gristle that you get from some shop-bought rubbish, it is gorgeously spreadable :D

Once you take a bit off the top it's all nice and pink underneath. Home-made pate is unbelievably good :tmb:

Where did you get this recipe? I'd love to try and make it!

SUGARPIE
24-04-06, 15:10
I made it myself Belfy :D

Whack about a quarter of an UNSALTED butter pack in a nice big pan (preferrably a Wok), but melt it slowly. Put in a finely chopped onion (chop it in a mixer if possible) and fry on a low heat. Add finely chopped garlic cloves according to taste and in a seperate pan, cook two small packs of chicken or turkey livers (usually available in the frozen section of the super-duper market ;) ), in another quarter of a pack of UNSALTED butter.

I tend to cook the livers for about 20 mins on a medium heat because I like them to cook inside and out and they do take a while to cook through but you can do them for as little as 5 minutes (not something I personally recommend)

Once they are cooked to your satisfaction, just add the livers to the onion and garlic pan and add a small amount of seasoning if desired.

In the liver pan, pour in a table-spoon of sherry or wine which will pick up all the remnants of the pan and add that to the mix.

Pour the lot into a mixer and after a minute it will have blended well. Turn into small Tupperware (or similar) containers. When cooled you can freeze some of it :tmb:

To all the younger posters I used to eat my steak very well done too at your ages. But your tastes change as you get older. Like Sugar I cooked steak one night and was extremely hungry, I thought it was cooked through but when I cut into it it wasn't. I was too hungry to put it back in the pan and cook it some more. To my surprise I preferred it that way and usually eat it like that all the time now.

Thanks for the Pate recipe Lo. I absolutely love Pate.

I also do a Salmon Pate which is really yummy. I haven't done it for a long time. Will have to dig out the recipe and make some.

Stilton sauce is always a nice accompanyment for steak. I had it at a retaurant once and just made my own after that- a basic white sauce with a large wedge of stilton melted in - it's delicious if you like stilton, it really melts in the mouth!

gazhammer, I'm with you 100% man. The worst is when you make it extremely clear that you want it very well done and yet the monkeys in the kitchen cook it the same as everyone else's. Oh it burns me up. I have no problem sending it back either. If you can't do it right the first time, do it again.

And really for me, steak is just a vehicle for A1 anyway. :)

Well steak is expensive and if it's not cooked dead I'll just gag when I try to force it down. So it's either take my chances with the cook or pay for something I won't eat.

Anyway here's a GREAT SUPER SMASHING GORGEOUS recipe I tried the other day.......

*Get some really nice crusty bread spread on a layer made of mayo, a splosh (techincal term) of balsamic vinegar and a finely chopped clove of garlic.

*Fry some red onions in a dash of olive oil, then add some more balsamic vinegar to make them really sizzle :D. Remove from heat.

*Now the steak. Use the best thin steak you can find, and lightly rub on some (you guessed it) balsamic vinegar. Fry gently until cooked - your own preference.

*Make up the sandwich with the steak, onions and bread, and add a generous amount of leafy salad and sliced cherry tomatoes. Enjoy.......and add balsamic vinegar to your shopping list, it appears you've used up the whole bottle :whi:

BTW folks, if you order "well done" or worse,
you will get the worst and oldest cut available.

Good chiefs will be disgusted with you
and give you what you deserve.
Since the cut will be ruined anyways.

Better to order pasta if you are like that.

Just sayin'...

Actually where I come from, a "good chef" respects the customer's taste and doesn't judge them based on how they order their steak. A "good chef" does the best they can with what they have to work with.
