I just put a bite of a rare porterhouse steak in my mouth and OMG!!!!  

It is INCREDIBLE!!! I have never had it this way before. As a matter of fact before I went vegan a few years ago (before the BTD) I would gag if someone made steak because it was always dry and unedible to me. How am I 40 years old and just founding out about this pleasure?? I just thought I would share. I am so excited! I have to make sure to save half of this steak for tomorrow. I dont want to be greedy with a new found love.

Rare steak can also be quite good sliced very thin and eaten cold the next day.  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I agree Victoria - I had some awesome steaks in the US, usually rare, & had a wonderful brunch on last day in hotel, of "doggy bag" of cold leftovers from the night before

I grew up hating steak (and most meat). As I learned to cook myself, I concluded much of what I ate was just plain overdone. I remember being at the dinner table as a child, chewing, chewing, chewing a piece of tough meat and finally it would just end up in my napkin, as I wondered how the rest of the family was managing to plow through this dried up, tasteless thing called steak.

Not a good thing for an O. Guess that is why I was so out of whack!

dried up meat and fish are difficult to swallow. I before BTD ate beef just rare or raw !
A beef stew or overcooked beef was for hours in my stomac as rock to digest... I know why with Dr D. !

I like mine hot and pink in the middle, not bloody.  But as long as it's hot (not still raw and mooing) I'm ok if it's a little on the rarer side.  We made grass fed beef burgers last night and had them a little more rare than we usually like our burgers, but if they are too well done they are tough.  With grass fed you have to eat it rarer.

I am learning so much. I just couldn't believe how great the steak tastes rare. It seemed more flavorful. My body was and still is (this morning) feeling good. I didn't get that "beef sitting in the stomach" feeling at all. It was weird because I was expecting that to come with eating the beef but instead my stomach didnt feel heavy at all. Even my little four year old daughter had a taste and liked it (She doesn't like tough meat at all no matter what it is). Is it okay for my little one to have rare beef?  

I guess I will be enjoying a life of rare or medium rare beef from now on.

In Belgium we eat 'steak tartare' which is raw minced beef (only the best lean cuts are used) and then various things are added to it. It's yummy with a green salad and some chips (it's only an occasional indulgence as it's expensive).

Just today I cooked a grass-fed rib eye steak rare, with just a dab of ghee on it. The steak had been marinated with my favorite "fake soy sauce" but the center of it retained the original taste of the beef. This was probably the rarest state I ever cooked my beef in. But it turned out to be so delicious! I loved it! It made me feel so good and satisfied, and stopped me from searching for carb snacks in the afternoon

I agree with you balletomane,

It sure takes care of the carb issue. I ate it with a side of asparagus and I sauteed onions in ghee and put it on top of the steak, it was devine. If I eat like that every night I probably would forget about carbs (maybe not). !

Quoted from Bobbier
What about Lamb? Does anyone eat that rare?


That is the ONLY way to eat lamb.  Here are some pictures I posted on another thread.  It was amazing!!!!

https://picasaweb.google.com/1.....&feat=directlink

I believe that all red meat should be eaten rare to medium rare.  Fish, too!  Tonight we had the most amazing wild caught salmon, rare, and it melted in your mouth!    Should have taken a picture.  

I think most people don't like meat or fish because they have only had it when it is overdone or don't know how to cook it.  I believe that when you overcook it, just like veggies, you destroy some of the beneficial nutrients.

My parents over cooked certain things and I thought they were disgusting.  Until I learned to cook, I had some pre-conceived notions about food.  These are just my thoughts about food. Others may disagree, but I will say I am a natural O because I LOVE the meat and fish I am allowed!

We love rare loin lamb chops, but the shoulder cuts are too tough.  Love rare bison steaks and grass fed beef stakes.  If bison is cooked too long it tastes of iron, not pleasant.  
The tough, cheaper cuts of meat,  I cook low and slow for several hours....like on warm with a little liquid.  Low and slow cooking with moisture retains some of the nutrient plus makes cheaper cuts chewable.  We are also new at eating good cuts of meat rare and love it!  Very satisfying but not often as they are expensive.

i think the resone we learn so late how good rare meat is comes down to education and fear. people are tought their whole young lives to cook out all the germs and many people are told that undercooked meat is germy. true, eating raw under cooked poultry my get you salmanila but birds don't have the same processes. birds will eat anything given the opertunity, and i mean anything. and many people simply don't know how to cook! no one teaches them how to tell when the steak is done so they just cook it untill no more juice comes out.


nothing to do? who has that!?

I can't stand the taste or texture of rare steak. I've had steak "medium rare" and enjoyed the edges, but couldn't stomach the middle part where it was pink. I prefer it medium, but I also don't mind it well done.

My hubby was telling me that in his mind he always thought rare or medium rare was something that was not edible. Whenever he saw a piece of pink meat he would either pass on it or ask if it could be cooked longer, that is until this week.  

He tasted the steaks that I made and he said he just wanted to get past his mind set and see really what it tastes like to eat steak rare. Once he put that piece of steak in his mouth, it was a done deal... He is hooked now and so am I.

See, I've actually tasted the pink part, and I don't like it. I found it too bland and the mouth-feel was too gummy.

I love rare steak--doesn't matter to me if it's bloody, in fact I like it with a cool red center, though most of the time I'll make do with medium rare to not gross out other people at the table, ! Grass-fed or free range tends to be better tasting when it's more rare, as several posters above have said already. It's less flabby and gummy than cornfed, at least in my experience.

So glad you found out how good rare beef can be! It's good to be an O now and then.

I grew up eating steak medium rare or rare so it's all I've ever known.  There's nothing better than a really good filet!
