Cooking – degrees of readiness

    • Very Rare – the outside is lightly charred, the inside is red and cold
    • Rare – the outside is brown/grey, the inside red
    • Medium Rare – the outside is brown, the inside pink
    • Medium – the middle of the meat is pink but most of it is brown, the outside is well cooked
    • Medium Well – most of the meat is well cooked, with a very small section in the middle remaining pinkish. Meat is tougher when cooked this way
    • Well Done – the meat is brown throughout, the texture becomes tougher, less juicy and more difficult to chew
