Asking for a steak "medium rare"

jameshig | Aug 30, 2010 06:22 PM

I have just started to ask for my steak by temperature instead of rare/medium rare. Am I a douche for doing so? Is it an a-hole thing to ask for a steak 130-135 rested?

I know the temperature, and I know the steak, if it's a good cut of meat, should be perfectly cooked (at least to me) if it is pulled off the grill at about 125 and left to rest for 5 or 10 minutes.
