I’ve taken a lot of Spanish classes throughout my life and even though my maiden name is French, I never studied it. I should have though because…
Many years ago, before we were married, Bill and I and my parents liked the looks of a quaint restaurant in Paris for dinner. The waiter, along with everyone else didn’t speak English any better than we spoke French, which was none. I saw Steak Tartare on the menu and said we should order it. I thought for sure I knew what it was: “rare steak.”
- It’s rare if your finger leaves an indentation.
- It’s medium-rare if the steak just barely springs back.
- It’s medium to medium-well if it springs back quickly.
- If it is tough to the touch, it’s well done as in inedible, ruined.
