Roast beef is traditionally served "rare" or "pink", meaning that the centre of the joint is warmed, but not cooked so that it retains the red colour of raw beef. While eating you can even see some bloodlike red juice. Some people can not eat raw meat and when having a Roast Beef they can either have it medium done or well done. I prefere medium or even rare, while well done is just another piece of meat. My favourite is with green pepper sauce. Do you like roast beef? Rare? Or rather well done so you do not see any blood?
