I don't eat meat, but when I did I liked it lightly cooked.
When we went out as a family when I was a a kid I liked my steak blue. If I could have had it raw I think I would have taken the option. But none of my family ate very rare meat,
If I ate a boiled egg I wanted it hard boiled. No-one in my immediate family ate eggs hard boiled.
So - what's with the 'everyone eats steak well done cos they were raised that way' etc stuff. Do people not have an opinion of their own?
