“How would you like your steak cooked?” guide

It’s that question that goes hand-in-hand with ordering a steak.

We’ve pulled together an easy to use guide, so you can get to know your ‘rare’ from your ‘well-done’ if your cooking one of the nation’s favourite meals.

  • Blue: Should still be a dark colour, almost purple, and just warm. It will feel spongy with no resistance.
  • Rare: Dark red in colour with some juice flowing. It will feel soft and spongy with slight resistance.
  • Medium-rare: A pinker colour with a little pink juice flowing. It will be a bit soft and spongy and slightly springy.
  • Medium: Pale pink in the middle with hardly any juice flowing. It will feel firm and springy.
  • Well-done: Only a trace of pink colour but not dry. It will feel spongy and soft and slightly springy.

It’s very important to consider the size and weight of your steak before calculating the cooking time and we can provide advice. Get our expert opinion when purchasing yours instore.
