Just never cared for steak that much. I just never saw the thrill in steak. I think maybe twice I have cooked steak. I thought about cooking in an SCA cook off but my heart is not in it.

There is more flavor and joy in a pork chop than a steak. I wish I enjoyed it but I just don't.







OMG, no, no, no, no and no. There is absolutely no way that a basically bland meat like a pork chop has more inherent flavor than a steak. Now, I accept that it might be a flavor that some don't like, but it's flavorful nonetheless. To each their own, but when you cook a steak to well done and force all the juices out of it, most of that delicious flavor goes with it.



If you are adventurous, try this. Get a small ribeye or strip, cook it to Medium well and try it. Then next time, cook it just a little less and try it at Medium. if you don't like it, that's cool, some just don't like the taste of beef. But you owe it to yourself to try

Pork chop bland? You must have had it the way my mom cooked it growing up. Chewy and dry as fark. Pork chop beats a steak every time. If its done right.
Best ones come off the Weber Go Anywhere. I have plenty of bland pork chops that were poorly cooked but done right it beats steak.

I have had steak cooked at SCA events. I have had them cooked by people telling me how steak is amazing. There is nothing special about steak. Except a black nugget marinaded steak now that fixes up a steak nicely. Gives it some wow factor. There is nothing wow about a steak. Its just bland and boring. Seems to me its over rated.

Pork chops are relatively bland compared to other parts of the same pig. Compared to beef? No contest. And I am a pork lover.

Medium rare here. Worked with a guy that liked it blue rare which to me is 1 step away from it walking in the pasture!

depends on the cut. mostly i'm a medium to medium-rare. when I'm out to eat medium is the safest, at home I cook to what ever I happen to feel like that moment.

Medium-rare as well. However - Ill eat it almost any way it's cooked, although I'd probably cry a little while chewing through a well done steak. If I was paying high dollar restaurant prices I'd send anything beyond medium back. Oh yeah and Beef > Pork every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I voted med rare and that's what I order out. What I'm really after is more about texture, I want it to just go firm no matter the color. Venison, elk or well aged beef can get firm at very rare. I like to keep them juicy but no jelly texture.

I'm another one who voted medium rare, but wouldn't turn down a rare.

If it has a chance of getting back up if you hit it with an AED, serve it up.
