    Medium Rare for most cuts, but the fatter the cut, the more I prefer it cooked a little more (until medium)

    Depends on the fat content of the meat. Usually I enjoy medium-rare, but prefer fattier pieces of meat to be cooked a bit more.

    spent many years eating them medium rare, but living with my lady for the past few years, I've moved towards just eating steaks just a little shy of Medium - about half red inside. Asian people eat their steaks way overcooked - it's a compromise on my part, as I can eat them pretty rare, she can't. I like to eat with a bit of wasabi or fresh horseradish, but nowadays I can only eat about 4oz of steak, maybe 4 slices or so, before I get sick of eating the same thing.

    lol. serious... or joking? I was being serious - I find many Asian people to be squeamish about steaks cooked even medium. I have no idea why, as they also love to eat clotted blood, offal, trotters and head, etc. My girlfriend, given the choice, would choose a steak medium-well, but is willing to eat tripe and other offal.

    ^ This.

    Although, it's pretty much just the older generations and females (not sexist) who prefer to have their steaks overdone, I find. Like my parents and relatives. Still doesn't make sense that Azns would eat anything they can lay their hands on but a nice rare - medium rare steak.

    This.
    When i am at a restaurant and i overhear ppl ordering steaks well done i almost want to march over and slap them silly, although the look on their waiters' face usually says it all.

    Most women I know have no palate, whatsoever. They are either vegetarians, or just eat fish, because "beef is yucky" and it's "cruel" to eat meat. I believe this to be largely responsible for my inability to sustain a stable relationship.

    There is probably also a lack of the bizarre hyper-masculinity that we associate with eating raw meat. Honestly, for all the people I see order food to well done, I see many more who order things cooked so little that the juices haven't been given a chance to flow.
