similar here.  'steak' in our house was a thin-ish slice 
of round, fried and then simmered with onions.  looking 
back, i can only remember 'gray'.

i came to medium-rare via a husband who likes his steaks 
still moo-ing.  mine may stay in the pan or on the grill a 
tad longer, but i really dislike well done steaks now.  25 
years later. 8)

but i remain brainwashed to run from pink pork.
