Minetta Tavern's Black Label Burger

cubmstr | Oct 9, 2010 01:50 PM

I am trying to decide how to order the black label burger. I know I should order it medium rare and I have ordered burgers from other places medium rare however they usually over cook them. I always order my steak medium rare. From the pictures I have seen it looks like Minetta's medium rare is a true medium rare. I am okay with a burger being pink throughout with a touch of red as long as it does not taste raw and the center is not cool. I also don't want the center to have what I would describe as a raw texture.

I have ordered plenty of burgers medium and have been disappointed because they are overcooked however I don't want a raw tasting burger. I just want the rarest, juiciest burger possible without it tasting undercooked. How should I order it?
