Steak – bloody lovely steak…
I’m not a huge eater of meat – mostly chicken and bacon, but like the odd steak occasionally.
I’m far from an expert on cooking steak, but generally go for a medium – this is usually nice and pink, but no blood, which is what I want.
I had an 8oz fillet on Friday night and all started well, but by the time I got to the end, it was oozing the red stuff and my plate was a shade of crimson. Some mates said it seemed normal, others reckoned it was a bit more than you’d expect for a medium.
It was very nice – the best steak I’ve had by the way. I just get put off by blood and had to leave the last bit, as nice as it tasted.
What would you expect from a nice fillet, cooked medium?Posted 3 years agoStonerSubscriber
Its not blood, its Myoglobin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myoglobin

If it must be cooked, then put the pan on a high eat and eat the steak in another room 🙂Tom_W1987Member

I beg to differ, my brother who’s a Senior Chef De Partie in a Michelin star restaurant cooked up some utterly stunning very artsy dishes that included medium fillet.
I can only handle raw in canapes.Posted 3 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
M&S use Scotchbeef which is the same as who Costco use too, very good beef.
Do you just mean beef from Scotland? It’s a little more complex than that. Probably that they give their buyers better requirements than some of the others. Is there any certification on scotch or is it just out of a Scottish slaughter house? If so then it could be from half of the UK.
Also for the op the chef was just serving the steak properly it’s just some people ask for the wrong thing 😉Posted 3 years ago

It’s certified and from select producers if I recall correctly, although it can from different places of origin so need to check the label. My late Father in Law use to pick cattle up for slaughter he knew who supplied what beef for which shops.Posted 3 years ago
