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.

Fact: steak is not bland

I say medium rare. But that also works as a target goal, that hopefully the cook can get it somewhere in the range of rare to medium. That is acceptable. I have hit all the above with my own. I don't like to cook them for my mom, because she says medium well, and my habit is to undercook meat. Not sure about Pittsburg rare? I guess it would depend on the cut?

Medium Rare to Medium, anything past that is overdone.
Rare isn't quite there for me, not sure why, as I used to love it that way, but maybe my tastes have changed as I grew older.

I will of course make allowances for other people cooking for me, as I do have some friends who like to cook, but haven't quite mastered their grills. Lots of times if I'm with them, I'll volunteer to cook since they provided the heat (grill) and the meat (steaks) preparing them is the least I can do.

Maybe it depends on the cook. In my experience its bland and boring. Just not my thing. I wish I enjoyed steak but I don't. Well done is the only way I can eat it. I prefer black nugget marinaded steak.
Some people like it and some don't.
Good piece of pork is what I like. Steak I have had is nothing special. Pork chops are amazing when done right.

I have no intention of convincing you to believe steak is bland. Just my experience and I just don't care for it.

To each their own.

Heh, you kind of remind me of a customer I had when I was a waiter. He ordered a steak well done and I talked him down to medium. I told him that if he didn't like it, I'd happily take it back and have it cooked to well done for him.

When the steak came out, he cut into it and tried a bite. I watched as he dang near teared up. I came over and asked if everything was OK? And if he liked it? He said it was delicious but that he was sad that he'd missed out by eating them well done for all those years.

Like a lot of other folks have said, I order medium rare but anything rare to medium will work. I just read an article that said a lot of steak houses are intentionally sending out their steaks undercooked to ensure that if it's sent back it can be cooked more rather than having it overcooked and having to discard it. I really just like the center to not be at refrigerator temperatures.

That said, I also love raw: Steak Tartar, Kibbeh Nayyah, Carpaccio...
