^ A medium rare ribeye is an absolute pleasure to the palate. I encourage you to try it some day. You may have to work your way down to medium rare (it’s all psychological) before you can enjoy the exquisite taste, but doing so is definitely worth it.
beatusmongous speaks the truth! I was raised with meat that was cooked to death, so I had to work my way down. Luckily, here in Africa we are not legislated to death (yet), so they’re pretty happy to cut off its horns, wipe its arse and slap it on your plate.
^ It pertains to ground beef, only, not steaks. Due to the Jack In the Box scare about 20 years ago, California’s health department mandated that all ground beef must be cooked to medium or more. Because Nevada gets the majority of our tourism from California, we quickly followed suit (no pun intended). We can still enjoy raw steak, though.
