How would you like your steak?

I don't really even like steak that much, but I think this information is very useful. For more information from a source who knows far more about this than I do, click here. But here are some basics for the next time you head out for your fix of red meat or if you want to cook it at home yourself:

  • Flip once
  • Internal very red, moist, red juices
  • Touch: very soft
