I've spent many many many years in the kitchen (mostly higher end establishments) around many professionals in the industry.

The reason myself, and everyone else I know, can't stand well done steak is....

...Here it is comes boys, the cold hard truth;

People who order well done stakes 99.99999% are the most difficult customers that are most likely to needlessly run you like a horse, make up complains, want their meals comped/reduced, and tip like shit (amerift problem)

It's just people have shit taste and are afraid of 50% of the food they eat.

People think they'll get sick from eating a medium rare steak but proceed to go ahead and drink a Coke a day and shove processed foods and sugars up their asses.

It's uneducated. It's savage. It's embarrassing.

Avoid welldonners at all cost.

This is what happens when the chefs of /b/ get an order for "medium well"
>>
I actually feel like a dick about it but I basically teased my own mother into never ordering steak from a restaurant again, because she always got it well done. I always told her that she's probably driving the chef to cleave off his cooks' fingers one by one, yakuza style, and serving them as an offering to the god of meat for the complete sacrilege she was committing every time she did this.

Or I would just ask the waitress to bring out a charcoal briquette, because it's the same difference.

But, anon, could it also be that they are a normal customer who happens to like well done, and when arrogant chefs see that order, they lose all care and concern about quality (due to a perceived notion of inferior tastes of the customer) and thus give the customer actual legit things to complain about, like a self fulfilling prophecy?
>>
>>7308583
but muh welldone memes
>>
>>7308583
That could probably be true. But my experience has been that people who order well done are usually very picky eaters with shit taste. I have seen this in my own family. The folks who were afraid of flavor and many vegetables were the same as those who recoiled at meat with more than a hint of pink in it.
>>
>>7308535
It's not that bad, of course it will be a lesser steak, but steakhouses know how to cook a well done steak to still be somewhat juicy. See if you could get her to at least do med well too.
>>
>>7308605
She doesn't like a hint of pink in her steak, period.

Restaurantfag here, anyone notice that blacks ONLY get steaks well done and always with A1. Even if it's a steak covered in cajun seasoning, or something like asiago cheese
>>
>>7308633
Mexican here. Whenever I cooked on the grill with outside with my dad, my stepmom would walk in, LITERALLY spitting out the carne asada I cooked medium. Demanding that the rest of the steak be cooked until practically burnt.

I fucking hate her to death, especially after saying that 'you can now taste the flavour' on a black piece of meat
>>
>>7308413
What bothers me most is:
How much longer do I have to wait, because someone at my table ordered well done? my precious minutes
>>
>>7308535
anon, you should feel like a dick now. the woman gave up raw meat while pregnancy. because for pregnant women it's generally not recommended to eat red meat. and now she gave up steaks because she loves you so much.

they both can taste fantastic but you have to know how to do it

it's not about just cooking one longer

People who like well done steaks have autism.

>I don't want it to be pink, I'll be reminded that it's meat from an animal and I have the mentality of a 4 year old

It's purely a visual thing, because the taste is ruined. You can expect them to ask for a1 or ketchup to dip it in like the hot dogs they're used to because it's dry and ruined.

I think it's true anon. My mom is the only person who orders medium well and she always complains and sends food back, while the rest of the family orders rare and never bitches even if overcooked.

Also, people who order well done make the entire table have to wait much longer and they complain about the wait all the time, especially if a table next to them sat down after them but got their food first.

We don't do them in order, morons. If we did, some bills could take an hour.

no don't you understand? only something directly touching heat gets hot, that's why you can wear latex gloves and put your hands over flame. the outside of the glove gets hot but the inside which isn't touching the flame stays nice and cool. how can something's temperature be raised unless it's directly exposed to heat?
>>
>>7310227
>that's why you can wear latex gloves and put your hands over flame. the outside of the glove gets hot but the inside which isn't touching the flame stays nice and cool.

Go do that. Put on a latex glove and hold your hand over the heat for 3 minutes per side. It's OK. The heat can't get inside.

i think well done has a better texture, and the flavor seems to be magnified because there's slightly less water in it. i also don't like soup but will eat a stew with no problem. any food that is too wet kind of makes me feel nauseous. a well done steak with sauce made from the drippings is good. i prefer braised fatty meats though.

Guys the thing is, most average restaurants have meat quality which at best is questionable.
Sure if I went to an upscale restaurant I'd be more inclined to try medium rare but at an average restaurant no way. This is coming from an eurofag.

All well done steak tastes the same so there's no point ordering a premium steak well done.

There is such a thing... As shit steak. I know... I know... With shit steak you go ahead and tenderize that fucker and batter it and give it a proper burial in a deep fryer... But to some of us masochistic few, we enjoy a rare treat known as diner steak.

Diner steak is something you consider sometimes. You sit in IHOP or Denny's or whatever eggs and hash slinging, blue plate having purveyor of hangover food you frequent, and you see steak and eggs on the menu. You consider it briefly, but then dismiss it as something immediately, who would order steak at a goddamned Denny's?

I do. And I can say that Denny's beats out IHOP fair and square, but I generally prefer my local Jim's up the road. Mainly because they know me, know that I'm generally sober, and always leave a 20% tip, rounded up.

The glory of diner steak is that you can treat it like a left handed Thai child prostitute that's about to turn 19; because not even Subway would want that.

I like well done steaks (fully cooked) and I don't do this. I actually have never had a steak though so you might not take what I say into consideration.

Really? Because according to germ theory, every chef, and the bizarre mystical devices known as meat thermometers, medium rare, or rare (borderline so definitions can vary) is fully cooked.

Underated post.
When I'm portioning strips to 10oz or a pismo to 6 oz, occasionally I miss the mark.
A 9 oz strip or a 5 oz filet get labeled for use as medium well or higher.

Its gonna shrink so much anyway, and its gonna looks smaller compared to the guy sitting next to them with a medium rare, even if they weighed the same precooked.

I can't stand the texture of red meat.

So yeah, medium it is for me.
I rarely get the perfect medium when I order one though.

fucking hate this. they want ash, go to the crematorium.

best well donner ever " i dont care if you have to cut that bitch up, no blood. do not even care". chef obliges.

my biggest gripe about well-donners is that they dont understand the timeframe it takes to incinerate the steak, in say, a small kitchen.

youve got five, six , seven large checks on and there's only two of you and amongst all the straightforward, time flowing dishes, someone wants a smoking fossil.
just holds up the flow, fucks us, crashes the kitchen and we spend the whole night apolagising about the wait because johhny fuckface has a boner for dinosaur remains.
>>
>>7315979
Well done does not mean burnt you fucking shithead. I prefer my steak medium rare and I've tried everything but blue, and I can say that well done steak can be decent and not dry if done right. I agree about it being a bit of a waste of a good steak, but you're getting paid to cook and you're not going to do it right? Why would you work as a cook if you don't actually like cooking? Might as well work at a fucking McDonalds.

the thing with a slab of beef is that cooking it rare or medium rare will kill almost all of the germs on it because it's just the external surface area all of that is resting on. in ground beef that gets all mixed up inside of the meat itself but the people who obsessively order well done steaks don't seem to be going around doing the same with hamburgers and sticking meat thermometers in their burritos
>>
everyone knows a good steak is to be eaten medium. rare is disgusting and well is for idiots who want to ruin a good piece of meat. it has to be cooked long enough for he juices to get flow in and still taste cooked but not over cooked hence medium.
>>
>>7316216
medium rare or the top end of rare still kills 100% of the internal because the internal heat should still reach high enough to do so.
What the fuck is with damn near nobody in this thread fucking knowing this?

145 degrees american sits right on the edge between rare and medium rare.

You're overcooking it. Breast is the best part of the chicken when it's cooked the right way. It's moist without being greasy, and the flavor is really sublime.

The problem is that there's about two minutes between underdone and overcooked, so it's really hard to get it perfect.
>>
Most of the steak taste, or any read meat, comes from certain cells in the blood. It is possible to find it in certain flowers in extremely small quantities, but now it's possible to eat a juicy vegan steak without having to eat meat.

On the other side, cooking it too much just burn the cell to the point the meat becomes a stale rubbery mess.
>>
>>7308583
It's not a perceived notion, its incorrect. A good steak is meant to be enjoyed rare to medium. A professional chef should know this and also know how to prepare it well and safely.

Its like asking for a peanut butter and saurkraut sandwich instead of a PBJ. Yeah you can do it, and yeah you can eat it, but why the fuck would you? It doesn't taste right. Same with the well done steak.

I have a question for people who only eat their meat well done: do you also refuse to eat sushi? If not, why do you consider fish to be different?

Chicken I can understand, but why would you consider beef and fish to be different in that regard?

I prefer well-done, not because I'm afraid of my food or because I'm an asshole who'll bitch at the staff, his meals or whatever other bizarre scenario you can come up with.

I simply like it that way, just like you prefer medium, blue or still breathing. I don't know why you would make such a big deal out of other peoples tastes.
>>
>>7321098
I think most people are just asshats about this and have a superiority complex because they order medium or rare.

I've had decent cuts of meat cooked as well done and not once we're they chewy or tasted bad. It's just a stupid rl meme that is infecting almost everybody who deems themselves a cook and it keeps spreading into other pieces of meat, fish etc.

Have you ever wondered why steaks have a system categorizing how they're cooked?

If medium-rare is the only way to cook a steak, why is it not just called cooked, and anything below that, undercooked, and anything beyond, overcooked? Like every other food ever?

The whole point is so that guests can get easily get their steak how they like. The whole taxonomy is in place solely for you to shut the fuck up and give people what they want. No one outside your medium-rare circlejerk gives a shit about your meat idol worship. They're either in a restaurant and entitled to get what they're paying for, or a guest to whom a good host should show hospitality.

You're the worst, most grating food culture, literally worse than vegans. If you're going to get autistic about someone asking you to cook their steak well done, don't serve steaks. If you're going to cringe whenever someone around you orders their steak well done, do them a favor and don't let them spend another minute of their life having a relationship with a faggot like you.
>>
>>7308413
Op is right
Every time I've seen someone order a well done steak they 1st say "Ohhh I absolutely love steak, it's my favorite!"
As a chef every ticket thays come in for a well done steak has been at the end of the night as we're cleaning up & it's like 30min to coom the fucker

God I hate that. I have no issue with people ordering steak how they like it, but the people who want their steak well done and then complain that it's tough bug me.
>>
I've never been a cook but I've known a few good ones (aka not at your local Sizzler). Apparently the issue is that they spend quite a bit of effort to get good cuts with proper marbling or whatever, gotta play the market or something in order to get meat that is factually superior to the "average" shit.

So if they have some of that on hand, they don't want to ruin it on a well-done steak, because none of the qualities of that cut comes through when it's been well-done anyways. When it's been cooked that far, it might as well be indistinguishable from any other kind of well-done cut. I dunno how much exaggeration there is there, but apparently a medium rare steak will show a much bigger difference between a quality cut and a trash cut, so they want to save the good cuts for people who want their meat cooked in a way that its quality can actually be appreciated, and a well-done steak is a well-done steak so just use the bottom-tier crap for that.
>>
>>7321135
If you go to a steakhouse and pay for a well done steak you are wasting your money. When you cook it that much you remove all the qualities that make it a 20 dollar cut of meat as opposed to a 3 dollar cut for example.
>>
>>7323148
>When you cook it that much you remove all the qualities that make it a 20 dollar cut of meat as opposed to a 3 dollar cut for example.
Pretty much, unless the cook actually gives a fuck about cooking well done properly. Few do because very few people who order steaks well done can tell the difference between a nice piece of meat and a shitty one. So for the most part it doesn't matter.
>>
>>7323148
not true, btw
>>
>>7323209
It's pretty true. 95% of people wouldn't be able to tell they were eating a Wagyu steak if it was cooked well done. The distinctive marbling would be destroyed.
>>
>>7323148
>if you eat food the way you like and not the way i like you're wasting money
it's pretty easy to tell the difference between high and low quality steak, even if it's well done
>>
>>7323246
Your mother has a wooden leg with a kick-stand motherfucker
>>
>>7308413
combination of a few factors

1. they personally dislike steak done that way "stop liking what I don't like"
2. they are sick of people who are scared thinking their food came from an animal
3. they consider the fear of raw food an insult to their food prep hygine
4. there is a cultural stigma attached to all cooked meat, because since the dawn of time if meat was of lower quality or old; you just cooked it longer.
hence people started saying that high quality meat should be served pink
5. chefs are the worst food snobs around
