I like those. I prefer my steak very rare, too. IMHO it should be purple and raw in the middle. Lovely
The second one, if used in a very nice restaurant (esp. a very nice French one, where very rare beef is likely to be the norm) is a bit of a put-down of the waiter for even asking - by intimating that the restaurant serves frozen beef. Another good response, in a different but similar vein, is "I'd like mine sitting up," which implies that a dog steak will be served.
