If an egg yolk is cooked all the way through, I don't even want it

There is cooked, and there is food poisoning.

People also get angry with me with regards to how I like my steak. Cooked, not raw.

Why get angry over a food preference? Unless that is the way you serve steaks to other people. And it's your way or the highway.

I don't eat steak often but when I do I prefer it on the rare end of medium rare. My uncle used to just sear each side for a a few seconds and eat it blue, but that's a bit much for me.

I like it that way, but itís hard to chew. I liked to sear it and then put it in the oven. Iím a pescatarian now, so all I can do is watch my wife eat it, but it does smell good.

I might be a steak snob. I need a dry aged ribeye, and I need it about 3" thick, hard crust seared in butter, salt and thyme, and rare

w/re: steak—spicy take—the only crime against a steak is cooking it to well-done. However, if a steak is overcooked and I'm not there to eat (or pay for) it, it's none of muh bidness :P


personal pref: sous vide for 3 hrs @ 118F, fridge salt cure for 48, pan sear in butter each side (once), the occasional herb thrown in, and 10 min rest. Maybe make a pan sauce from what's left.

I don't even like steak. Never did. Give me chicken or pork any time over steak.

How long until you're raising your own steaks out there?

I raised geese one summer a few years back cuz geese are the smallest cow. Actually I think id eat goose over beef 🤔 geese are true vegetarians, unlike other fowl who prefer insects over vegetation. I always want to get geese again but they're really really obnoxious and my wife hates them

When I was in high school I was an FFA nerd who raised sheep. They were pretty easy to take care of and they'd keep your grass trimmed at the same time! Birds would be easier to slaughter, though, for sure.

Not sure I've ever eaten goose. I always assumed that only people in old Christmas movies ate geese lol

I'd love to have some sheep but we have a really high water table here so that was a no go

Speaking of large birds, I was driving home last weekend and there was suddenly a traffic jam on the entry road into the city. I thought the city was doing some road work again. Turned out there was a swan standing in the middle of the road and every car had to go around it.
