|01:38 pm - Lunch-time poll ...|
Edit: Damn! Every time I thought about doing this poll, the first option was always going to be "I don't eat meat, you insensitive clod!" ... every time until I actually sat down and wrote it. Feel free to comment appropriately :)
The perfect steak ... ?
Well-done, with extra charcoal.
Light a match near the cow... Now blow it out. It's done !
"Lop off its horns, wipe its ass, and whack it on the plate"
... sauces, toppings, marinades, and/or other ?
(I've been meaning to post this for ages, then finally got motivated after burntcopper mentioned cooking setting off smoke alarms and some comments which followed.)
Current Mood: curious

What about 'the perfect steak is still in the cow, who hasn't been killed'?
Militant Vegetarian :)
Argh, yes, see edit above. There was supposed to be an option to that effect ...

... then it isn't a steak. So it doesn't fit under the category in question.
As to your signature, if vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?

Humans, of course! Non smokers for preference, especially organically grown humans - artificial flavourings such as most perfumes, smelly soaps, commercially available shampoos etc ruin the flavour. Why bother eating if all you can smell is petroleum-based products?

Petroleum's organic. For that matter, so's strychnine.

Yeah, yeah, and my lemonade is made with real lemons, but don't ask about the Girl Scout cookies.
There isn't an option for "I prefer it the way I specified above, but to be honest if you're going to the trouble of cooking for me I'll be very grateful and happy to eat anything." Just in case you're planning on organising a dinner party.
I've had some success with getting steaks-that-aren't-overcooked by explaining 'lean the cow against a radiator'.

I like it! I just ask for it screaming.

Another common quote..
"... I've seen things hurt worse get up and walk away."
I don't eat meat, you insensitive clod!
But "Lop off its horns, wipe its ass, and whack it on the plate" would have suited James perfectly. We'd go to posh resteraunts together and while I picked at the kind of Greek salad with slimy-looking feta cheese that's all most of these places offer yer hippie-veggie types, his dinner would be mooing.
