    I am one of those women who will not accept bitchin' about any food I work hard to buy, prepare, and put on the table. I have too much anxiety about food to handle it, and I don't see why I should. Eat it or starve, sucker! Or make your own food. No complaining. Luckily my own SO loves what I've made so far.

    However, if he truly loves his meat overdone, well, I don't see that as such a big deal. Cut it into two parts and let him keep cooking until it's ruined, whatever.

    But if someone called my cooking gross and demanded a re-do, I'd keep the steak and ditch the SO. Or at least, stop cooking for them.

    I would say yes... but that's because I prefer all my meat raw and he likes it to at least "greet" the pan.

    I went to a cooking seminar once and the chef (from a fancy restaurant) said he refused to cook meat above medium. If anything cooked more than medium was ordered, he cooked it medium anyways and covered it in sauce so the customer couldn't tell. Sounds like a good plan to me haha.

    I heard a similar story about chefs who swap a good piece of meat out for one of lesser quality when some sucker orders it well done. Won't know the difference anyway, and is really likely to coat it in steak sauce/ketchup. Shudder.

    Weve never been back to that resturant.. And yes .. He could tell the difrence
