    Medium rare. To overcook a good steak is unforgivable.

    I prefer 3, but I can do 4. I don't like the texture of 1 and 2, though 2 is doable.

    A good steak should be on a cooking surface just long enough to sear the outside. A cooking surface should be hot enough to sear quickly enough to avoid cooking the inside of the steak. Heat should only come from the cooking surface (no ambient heat from being inside a closed grill). Pic #1 is a little overcooked and needed a hotter surface for a better sear. The outside should have a little char and the transition to a raw inside should be more abrupt and closer to the edge.

    I prefer something between a 3 and a 4. Four is too well done, 3 is too underdone. I like a nice light pink color.

    I voted Rare but often ask for Rare side of Medium Rare, so 1.5. Really depends on the Cut.

    I also eat Steak Tartare which is awesome. My Wife does a great job with this dish, way better than when I make it.

    Don’t mind a good Steak but really only have it once a week.

    There should be a #-1.

    Honestly, I don't see how anybody would like 1 or 5. I prefer light pink in the middle but I would eat 2, 3 and 4 with no complaints.
