Medium Steak??


Hi ladies! I hope you are all well.

Just wondering - is it OK to eat a medium steak or should I have it well done? I am going out for dinner tonight and could drool at the thought of a medium steak... but not sure if its dangerous..??

Thanks

Medium steak is fine. As long as the outside is brown, there are no germs on the inside of it.

I'd say it's fine.. It's very rare you get any food poisoning from beef, people eat steak tartare (blughgh!) think it's more 1st tri you'd need to avoid..

I hope so because I ate a medium steak the other night. I didn't get sick so I assume everything was fine, and, it was amazing.

I usually have mine medium rare. Anything more than that and it's too tough for me. I love steak tartar (cannibal sammiches it's called here) but I haven't had any since before I found out I was pregnant, the only place I trust for that is a local store by my Moms which is an hour away and we don't go there often if at all.

I always thought it had to be cooked all the way through? I thought the issue was listeroisis because its undercooked? I have always thought that. I would love a medium rare steak!

I wish I had know that's OK. DH insists on buying steak and I have been eating mine well done which I really don't like. I like them really rare normally but medium rare would be better than nothing.

I've been encouraged by my OB to eat Medium or medium rare beef because of my iron deficiency and the iron pills are intolerable for me. Beef 3 times a week and plenty of lentils and greens have been on my menu for the past few weeks.

Hi, I think the risk is toxoplasmosis, I haven't eaten steak at all this pregnancy because I can't stand it well done so I don't see the point. Here's the link to the NHS guidelines on foods to avoid during pregnancy (includes undercooked/rare meat) for those who want to know: http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/917.aspx...CategoryID=130

I think people have said before that Toxoplasmosis is a risk in rare steak but that it's actually very unlikley to be found in beef products so quite a low risk, where as pork products are much more likely to be a Toxoplasmosis risk if undercooked.
