For some reason, I have the belief that one should be cautious when getting anything other than a well done burger. I almost always get burgers well done. I just don’t trust that the meat is going to be "clean" enough.
Contrary to that, I never order a steak well done. I guess if I was at a steak house, if I ordered a burger, I might be more inclined to get a burger less than well done. But then, I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t go to a steak house and order a hamburger in the first place.
I used to always get medium rare burgers, but with all the meat problems in the past, I just don’t feel safe getting less than well done any more. Perhaps it’s just unfounded fear. And, I have enjoyed some well done burgers that were still moist and delicious, without blood running out the side or turning my bun red. Maybe it’s the Worchester sauce that they mix in the meat that keeps it that way, I don’t know.
I love medium rare steaks. And still order them medium rare at restaurants.
This probably makes no sense. oh well.
