dinner parties - steaks !

So a question ,

I've done BBQ's before and happy to give raw, or burnt to a crisp burgers and let folks pick what they want.

I'm a med-rare - to med guy, and seriously, anything more than med-well, or well done is a WASTE of good steak.

So thinking on planning a dinner party, where I'm gonna be either doing steaks, or a roast, or even a brisket, I'm not gonna kill a good piece of meat.

So I know in my household/family culture, they don't eat pink meat "BECAUSE IT'S RAW AND WE'LL DIE", wife and daughter will eat pink.

So here's the deal, on the table is a nice slab of mid- to mid well, (pink not bloody)
If somone says, well "would you mind just putting my cut back on the pan"

Do I just politely do it, because they are savages and sit there in a huff all evening, or with grace say "sure I'll destroy that expensive well cooked piece of meat" and roll my eyes at them

If you're talking outdoor cooking, I've braised beef short ribs before.

Do 2 pieces, one more than the other.

If they need it more done, say "Welcome to it, I left the pan on the stove just in case YOU needed to hit it with some more heat". (Emphasis on YOU)

You are a host. You have graciously offered to meet their dining needs- all of them. Dont get huffy, dont let it bother you.

my 2 cents

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells

I would slice it. If it's not done well enough for somebody, it goes back on the grill. I'm actually planning on a smoked brisket party one of these days. I've never smoked meat so I need to play around with my BBQ for temperature before I do this. I have no problem with preparing the meat the way somebody likes it, but I might have to have another grill set up to cook over the heat.

nice replies,

it would be an indoor dinner party,
and the steak, loin etc done on the pan or in the oven
a "possibility" I would start a "smoke" in the kettle outside and bring it in to finish it off.

Cook it the Brazilian way and let them choose. The area of the meat dictates the doneness.

Why are you entertaining, why are you having them over? Are looking for trouble with your relatives.

If I know how someone likes their meat done, I cook it that way. I want my family to feel welcome and appreciated in my home.

Why even bother having them come, instead suggest to them all you go to a steak house, then everyone gets what they want and you donít have to burn a steak. Iíd happily offer to pay the whole tab at the restaurant too.
