I was just reading and commenting on @NJChicaa discussions and I was wondering how many ate meat that was not cooked, as in well done. When I ate steak I had mine well done and that is how my entire family eats it to this day. Now that I think about it if I see any pink on any chicken or turkey I am not eating it. I do not do raw fish. I was always taught to cook the food done to kill bacteria and worms that lives in meat of animals. I don`t care how people eat, That is their choice, I was just wondering how many people like their steaks and burgers well done?

I eat raw fish when I have sushi. And I eat other types of raw fish cooked in lemon (not much) when I eat cebiche (a dish common to Peru and Chile. I also eat raw ground meat cooked lightly with lemon (a German dish).

I don't like them extremely well-done because I think they often get too dry that way. I like mine best medium...I don't mind a bit of pink as long as it isn't bleeding on my plate.

@andriaperry That is actually not blood. It's juices that are tinted pink from the color of the raw meat. Notice the color of the juices in raw pork, which are much lighter pink, because pork meat is lighter colored than beef. The same applies to chicken, where the juices run light pink to almost clear from raw meat. I like any beef product cooked to medium, while chicken, pork and fish must be well-done.

@andriaperry I did, too, but it was from a bean and bacon soup that I hadn't let boil long enough. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

You're not supposed to eat poultry with any pink or blood showing. Pork either. However, you can eat beef rare, and back in the day you could even eat what was commonly called cannibal sandwiches - raw hamburger sandwiches. Can't do that now, though. I don't like all the flavor cooked out of my meat. Never have been fond of shoe leather. I prefer a nice rare to medium rare steak. It must show pink for me.

Poultry should ALWAYS be thoroughly cooked to prevent exposure to salmonella bacteria. The FDA recently lowered their recommended safe internal temperature for pork to 145 degrees F as the trichinella worm has been eliminated from the domestic pork supply. That is good news because otherwise it was way overcooked and dry. I like my beef medium rare to medium. . . with some pink. I grew up with my mother cooking beef well done to the point where it was like shoe leather. It was tough, dry, and gross. Meat that has some pink in it IS cooked, just not overcooked. I do like sushi on occasion.

What, none of those Instagram-worthy medium rare chicken tenders? Shoe leather beef is a travesty. I don't understand how some people enjoy it... I find it somewhat reminiscent of sawdust in terms of flavor.

@yukimori I don't understand the allure of well-done beef either. You lose the tenderness and the juiciness.

I grew up on hockey puck burgers. I want my burgers just barely done, no pink. Steak can be pink.

It is not safe to eat chicken or turkey not well done, it is perfectly safe to eat a steak rear. I like mine medium rare.

@andriaperry If you see blood when you order a medium rare it means it's not correctly cooked. Raw meat does not bleed.

I would like to have it extremely well done. So i would get rid of the thought that worms are still on it. We don't have an xray eyes to see it. So I am just being wary most especially with the food I ate.

@andriaperry The reason chicken is pink by the bone, they are no longer hung up by the neck and bled out. That's how farmers use to do it. Now to kill chickens, it's usually done by electrocution.

I prefer my meat well done also. I will sometimes eat beef medium rare if someone else cooks it that way, but that is not how I cook it. Anything else must be cooked thoroughly -- I won't touch poultry if it's pink because of salmonella.
