Medium-rare indicates how much the steak is cooked.

Hello,

Sometimes I heard that the waiter tell the name of different stake in French so I wrote them in French also .
rare(Br) =saignant (fr)=cooked for only a short time so that inside is still rare
Rare medium (Br) = point(fr) = lightly cooked still its inside is pink
Well done(Br)= bien cuit(fr) = cooked right through /thoroughly or for a long time.

Note the spelling of 'steak' when it refers to the cut of meat.
The term is usually 'medium rare', not 'rare medium'.

You will also hear
'blue' (cooked for an extremely short length of time)
'medium'
and
'medium well'

These are new expressions for me.

Unfortunately steak is written in Hungarian also in the same way and I know "medium rare" (it was in the test) so they were typos. I concentrated on French as I don't have French keyboard I had to be skilful when I looked for ' ' and I didn't notice that I had made typos.

Sorry: Kati
