Blue rare (115F)
Seared on the outside, completely red throughout. Meat remains gel-like in texture and difficult to chew; juices are not yet flowing freely
Seared and still red 75% through the center. Once the heat transfer is completed during the resting period, this steak will achieve “The Perfect Steak” Tender and Juicy!
Medium Rare (126F)
Seared with 50% red center. Right at the range of “The Perfect Steak”
Seared outside, 25% pink showing inside. Just past the point of “The Perfect Steak”.
Medium Well (150F)
Done throughout with a slight hint of pink. Paste the point of no return.
Well Done (160F)
100% brown. A waste of a good quality piece of meat.
