It's weird because I don't mind rare Ahi tuna, which has the same crusty exterior but cool interior, but for some reason it just doesn't work for me with beef.

I cook my tri-tips and steaks to 135 or so, which after a rest will give me a warm pink. Sorry, but that's how I like it.
Hard to argue with a warm center...I agree.
