Is this meat over-done, perfect or under-done? Heated debate is sparked over the quality of mum’s steak dinner
- A mum has sparked a heated debate over how to cook steak just right
- The mum was upset she had cooked her own steak for too long, over doing it
- People said her medium steak was perfect, some said it needed more cooking
A busy mum’s steak dinner has sparked a heated debate online after she asked if people thought the meat was overcooked, undercooked or just right.
The mum said she had to take he eye off the steak to clean up after her four-year-old’s tantrum and was disappointed because she had let it cook too long.
‘If your steak was cooked to this level would you consider it over, perfect or under?’ she asked posting a photo of her meal.

The steak in the picture appeared to be cooked medium, leaving the mum very disappointed.
But her audience was left divided and arguing over the right way to serve a steak with hundreds of people weighing in on the subject.
Some people were sick at the thought of eating something so pink.
‘Way too under cooked for me. I wouldn’t be able to look at that on my plate let alone eat it without vomiting,’ one woman said.
And she quickly found support.
‘Same if I see any red I can’t eat it. It needs to be almost burned before I would eat it,’ agreed another.
‘Same here, I need mine to be completely cooked, no pink even, probably burnt is best,’ added another.

But dozens of others said the meat was ‘perfect’.
‘I would consider it perfect cooked, well done mumma,’ one woman said.
Others were on the same page as the original poster.
‘This is way over for my liking, but each to their own I guess,’ one mum said.
‘This is definitely over cooked, it should be cooked blue,’ said another woman.
‘Over cooked, I like my steak to be mooing,’ wrote a third.
The meal was posted in the popular ‘What’s for dinner tonight Australia page’.
Others agreed the steak was cooked exceptionally for someone who was looking after a child mid-tantrum.
