Of the pictured, I'd say medium, but it really depends on the fat content and the grill setup.

I like beef jerky if its prepared properly (not from a large corporation) but I've never cared for steak too much

From the picture I'd be torn between 1 and 2, but in general, medium rare is the only way to go. wink

I think that this is an insult for all the brave cavemen that died or suffered horrible injuries in their noble endeavor to tame fire. Eating steaks rare is dishonorable to them, and to the evolutionary shifts of our jawbone and digestive tracts over the last 100,000 years. We haven't come this far as a tool-making species to go back and eat like Cro-magnon.

None of those steaks in the OP look particularly good, its decent meat but they're all too dry for the level of doneness.

Its like somebody threw them in a crappy pan that doesn't transfer heat well, so that they didn't sear properly and then the juices ran out.

Now this is my idea of what a medium steak should look like.

Anything from blue to rare, but steak is steak and as long as the meat is good.

I don't eat steak in Belgium as a rule as the meat here is tasteless, I do love a good Aberdeen Angus steak when I'm back home in Scotland tho.

I used to eat steak well done and with A1 sauce. Boy, how wrong I was!

Now we have the steaks between medium and medium rare, just salt and pepper, no need for salt! Experimenting with cooking pans though; the wife got me a grilled cast iron pan but it seems like the usual teflon pan cooks the steak better. I need to order a flat cast iron pan to try out.

if y'all are not using a Thermometer to gauge doneness, let me say you are doing it wrong. smile

Here in the South I order rare, which means one gets a medium rare steak, which is fine.

If you are cooking a steak in skillet, you are doing it wrong, as well.

The only kind of steak that should be cooked in a pan is "chicken fried." Other than that, you people have serious issues. cichlidfan is correct.

The only way to eat a steak is rare. On this there can be no debate.

When they ask if you want "steak sauce" or other assorted toppings (grilled onions, sauces, whatever) your answer should always be "I hope not."

If your "steak" needs bacon wrapped around it because it's a lousy piece of meat masquerading as a fine cut (you know which one) then you should just save your money and eat a hockey puck.

Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Matthew 5:11

Indeed we call blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of the perseverance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, because “the Lord is compassionate and merciful. James 5:11

I am always open to being educated smile
And I'm not shy of buying "expensive" kitchen implements if I know it will be well-used!

Like I said earlier, salt and pepper on the steak, a touch of oil on the pan, and then some butter and some garlic in the pan with the steak as it cooks. No sauce or anything when eating, the steak is divine as it is! Mixed vegetables and some creamy mash to go with it.

Usually go to the local slaughterhouse for some nice New York strip.

What cuts do you guys use and how do you cook it?

Outdoor grill (over charcoal/wood), indoor electric grill (Farberware used to sell a great one), and the last option being a George Foreman Grill. Any of these are far superior to a skillet.

I have found that a good steak seared on both sides in a very hot cast iron pan and then finished in the oven is just as good as and in some cases better than a steak cook on a grill.
