When it comes to nutrients there’s actually no difference between a steak that’s cooked rare or well done — the contrast is in the flavor and juiciness. For steaks, common graduations of done-ness are based on the color, juiciness and internal temperature. So, what’s the difference between rare, medium, and well-done steak?
This refers to a steak that’s been cooked for a very short period of time — leaving the center cool and red in color. It’s just a stage up from raw meat, but cooked on the outside.
Medium Rare
Medium rare steaks are warm with a pink to red center
More grey-brown than pink in the center this steak has a more pronounced band of pink in the middle.
Medium Well
Just a hint of pale pink inside this steak will be mostly grey-brown throughout
Well-done steaks are normally charred on the outside with and are greyish-brown all through with no sign of pink — they’re cooked on a slow heat to keep from toughening.
