It's not the color, blood, taste, texture, it's just that I'm put off by having a nice crusty, warm exterior and then having something cool hit my palate. It throws me off, and I find that I just don't enjoy the meal as much.

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.
Stated perfectly! The Filet I posted above was concerning when I first cut in to it but it had a warm center and it was below freezing outside so it wasn't going back on the grill. Lol
