‘Doneness’ level: your steak depends on it

Steak doneness. Yes, that is a proper phrase used in kitchens all over the world. The level of ‘doneness’ determines the flavour, texture, temperature and colour of your steak.

Here’s a handy chart (thanks to meatbeerbabes.com) to help you decide what’s best for you:

Steak cooking levels

A picture can only say so much. Here’s more information about the taste, texture and juiciness:

Blue

A blue steak is pretty much how it sounds – seasoned and seared gently on the outside, but completely red throughout. Because the meat is effectively raw, it’s hard to chew and not juicy as heat hasn’t permeated through the meat.

Rare

A rare steak is one for the beef purists out there. Often referred to as ‘the perfect steak’, a rare steak is seasoned and seared, and the insides are 75% red. After cooking and a brief resting period, the steak will be tender and juicy.

Medium rare

A medium rare steak takes the concept of the rare steak just a little further – the insides should appear 50% red. This level of steak doneness should still result in a juicy and tender steak.

Medium

A medium steak is seasoned and seared well on the outside so that just 25% of the insides are light pink. After cooking and resting, the steak will have a tougher texture and a less-juicy inside.

Medium well

A medium well steak is cooked throughout, with only a touch of pink inside, barely noticeable. This steak will be chewy and have very little moisture inside.

Well done

Some would say a well done steak is a waste of a good-quality piece of beef. Others like it for it’s crisp outer, completely cooked insides and leathery texture.

At Steak and Co., we’re happy to cook your steak to whatever level of doneness you desire.

Our brilliant sizzling steak concept – delivered to your table on a hot steak stone – means that you’re in control of your steak, cooking it to your own personal level of beefy perfection!

Our definitive guide to the best steak cuts

Sirloin, rump, rib eye, fillet steak, there are so many options, so which cut of steak is best? Each cut of steak has unique qualities, from texture and taste, to size and fat content.

Steak and Co steakhouseLet’s take a look at the most common cuts:

  • Sirloin steak – A versatile and tasty cut of steak cut from the tenderloin, the sirloin is a popular choice for many diners. A good sirloin steak will have a strip of fat surrounding the outer edge, which helps to intensify the flavour during the cooking process.
  • Rump steak – The rump steak has great firm texture and a bold flavour and tends to be cut in a large portion – great for super appetites!
  • Rib eye steak – The hearty rib eye steak is cut from the rib section, and is one of the most succulent and flavourful steaks available. The marbling of fat is quite high, contributing to the full flavour and tender, moist texture.
  • Fillet steak – A beautiful, lean cut of steak, the fillet steak is best when cooked from rare to medium-rare to showcase the quality and flavour of the meat.
  • T-Bone steak – The t-bone is perhaps the most flavourful – defined by the large t-shaped bone separating the strip steak from the tenderloin.
  • New York strip steak – A specialty sirloin, the New York strip steak (sometimes known as a Porterhouse steak) is trimmed into a nice, thick steak with plenty of marbling and a succulent texture.
Whichever steak you choose, a lot of a steak’s personality comes down to the way the steak is cooked, how the beef is fed, and the sauce you choose to accompany your steak – all aspects we’ll explore further so that you can make the very best choice next time you dine!

In the meantime, take a look at the Steak & Co menu to see the quality cuts of steak we have on offer.
