Team Medium Rare or Well Done?

Are you team Medium Rare or Well Done? 🥩

A raging debate more controversial than ones political beliefs, that I’m sure will continue in the comment section. Here is my perspective:

People should enjoy what they like and should not be judged for it. However, I do believe that objectively, certain cuts are optimized at different temperatures based on 3 variables: tenderness, juiciness, and flavor. Here are some examples:

Filet mignon: extremely lean and tender meaning it will quickly deteriorate and dry out if over cooked. For that reason a low temperature between 120-130F (rare) is often preferred. Cook a filet to 165F (well done) and the result will be extremely dry.

Brisket: filled with collagen and extremely tough, only becoming tender and juicy at high temps. Taking it up to a high internal temp between 200-210F (well done) is preferred. Cook a brisket to medium rare, and the result will be inedibly chewy.

As such, internal temps are highly dependent on the cut of beef itself!

Another critical piece of information is that some cultures commonly consume cuts that are optimized at lower temps while others primarily eat cuts that are high in collagen and require “well done”. I think this contributes to such strong and often conflicting opinions of the best way to cook beef.

With that said, I highly encourage you to continue experimenting and finding your own preference.

      Might as well throw it in the trash if you do it well-done. Sacrilegious and heretical to waste meat like that.

    In the end this is a matter of opinion, I like my steaks medium-rare, but my stepdad likes well done(like no juices or redness), I don’t agree with him, but I have had well done meat that I thought was good, and I have had medium-rare meat that I didn’t really like either. Whatever you like I will (try to) respect your opinion.
