Last week, we all discovered Donald Trump’s dirty little secret: he orders his steak well-done. This led to plenty of debate in the comments — with things getting pretty heated. While the news begs the question of whether we really want a man who purposely ruins his steaks to be the next leader of the free world, it also brings up another question: why, actually, is well-done steak a travesty?
Over at Reddit, someone asked that very same question last month. In a discussion of all things King of the Hill, the topic of steak came up (as it does when you’re dealing with Hank Hill), leading one commenter to ask, sincerely, for an explanation behind the cooked-through steak hate.
A professional chef quickly responded with a thorough explainer on the matter.
