I prefer it cooked medium, still juicy and delicious but not bleeding. Sometimes with sauteed mushrooms. And recently I've discovered that worcestershire sauce is great on a steak, blowing steak sauce out of the water IMO.

My natural tendency is to go for well well done. I have been trying to fight it, but every time I try asking for something cooked a little bit less - even medium well - it shows up bright red and bloody.

Up until five years ago, it was always well done. I've since changed to medium.

Last year, in Vegas, a friend and I were ordering Kobe Beef from Kokomo's in The Mirage and I just about had to flip a coin with our server to see who could smack her for trying to order her Kobe well done.

She's a germaphobe and was convinced that the only way you can't get sick with meat was if it was well done. We convinced her to get it medium and she was happy.

Medium Rare.

If grilled and seasoned properly, no steak sauce should be needed. But don't get me wrong, I do love A-1.

Medium rare with Worchestershire sauce on hand if needed but only Lea & Perrins. I actually like rare quite a bit also but medium rare in a resturant is safe. If it is past medium, it goes back.

Medium well, though I so rarely eat steak that I don't think I could distinguish it from either medium or well.

I like mine medium rare.

Our local brew-co has a two steak special for $15 on Tuesdays (which I split with friend) and a surf-and-turf (steak and deep-fried shrimp) special for $8.95 on Thursdays - and if you go during Happy Hour, you can get an excellent quality micro-brew for $2.50.

Needless to say, I'm getting REALLY fat.

Rare, red, and bleeding.

If I'm going to cook it myself, smothered in garlic butter as well.

I don't like eating steak in a restaurant; I prefer to cook it myself at home. Fried in a pan with a stick of butter and onions until everything is a nice tasty crusty (well done). What is left in the pan becomes the base for a pan sauce or gravy. I just don't like the taste of raw meat at all, be it fish, cow, chicken, or anything else.

Cooked 'til the pink is gone. I like to ensure my food is dead.

Medium well with a touch of pink in the middle. And cooked with salt and pepper only. If the mood suits me, though, I will not hesitate to drown the crap out of it in bearnaise.

Depending on the (perceived) quality of the meat, anywhere from "just lop the horns off and trot it out" to medium. I've had some blue-rare meat that was just unbelievable in texture and taste, but if there's any question of its provenance or it's a cut that calls for it, a little bit of pink in the middle is best.

I like a steak with a high fat content quick-seared medium well.

My favorite, by far, is the Ft Worth Ribeye at Texas Roadhouse.

Rare. And, I agree, if you cook it right, you don't need any steak sauce. Garlic butter, yes, but no steak sauce.

I don't eat a lot of steak, but I like it the same why I like most/all of my meat: well done.

Depends on it's provenance. With the cattle I've raised and slaughtered, walk it through the room and I'll carve off the piece I want, season it with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, and cook it for 45 seconds on a side in a smoking hot cast iron skillet. At most restaurants, I'll order my steak rare because it will most likely reach the table around medium rare.

Medium Rare. Since I've learned how to cook steak (and fish) I am unable to enjoy it at restaurants. Luckily for me that means the cheaper dishes like chicken or pasta.

I also buy my meat from either a local butcher, the butcher section at our grocery store or Costco. You get a thicker cut of Choice meat that way. Throw it on the grill seasoned with garlic salt & pepper. 6 minutes on one side 3 minutes on the other = perfection. No sauce needed.
