This is how I eat my steak, but stfu with that crap, the guy can make and eat his steak however he wants. I don't see why people have to say stupid shit like this...get off his nuts

Yep, if you know how to cook your meat it can be very tender up to medium well. Of course I'll only eat ribeyes, so those are easy to cook.

wow...lots and lots of you's must like Filet Mignon eh?? lol.

I appreciate all the replies...I do like my meat 'well-done' and yes, I know i'll most likely get bashed for that.

So...no special seasonings or anything for this? Oh...I like the idea about the garlic potatoes...I think thats what i'll make instead of mashed. Altho I don't know how to make those either but I'm sure they can't be too terribly hard. ^_^

Ribeye is the cut of champion. Beef Tenderloin is just overpriced bland meat.

Ribeye>NY Strip>Filet Mignon

damn straight. Although medium, to me.. is the best cook. Retains all the flavor of the cut, but isn't so chewy. Medium always is like cutting through butter and chews so easily.

and as rivan said... garlic mashed potatoes is a dressy and still tasty type of side.
I also like sweet potato casserole with pretty much any plate.

Thank you. I was going to post that ribeye is far superior, but you beat me to it. Filet m ignon is highly overrated, no matter how you cook it.

Ribeye is my fav too but the best steak I've ever had was the Kobe Filet. Kobe ribeye didn't even come close.
