Cooking Meat!!!

Is it just me?! This is the second time this week I´ve shallow fried meat for my other half (I rarely eat meat) & he´s sitting in there asking me for a chainsaw! He said "when it´s brownish it´s done" (we´re talking about pork now, it was chicken before)... ok so it´s brown and he says it´s tough! I give up! When you cook do you time how long you´re cooking meat for or do you poke it with a knife or taste some. HOW DO YOU KNOW when it´s done?! Any help would be enormously appreciated I assure you!

you push on it with your finger. The firmer the meat the more well done it is. The softer the rarer it is.

And if he wants it well done but not tough...?
