My partner and I always go to steak restaurants, tonight we went to a pub for a steak, I ordered a medium fillet mignon which is what I always order. The steak came out and it was dark brown the whole way through, no pink inside at all, so it was more well done than medium cooked. The colour was not medium and the taste wasn't medium.
I sent it back and the Chef claimed that due to the steak being aged its darker in colour when its cooked, so you wont get the pink medium look.
His 2nd cooking attempt resulted in my steak looking like medium normally looks like, it was pink in the middle and juicy not dry like the first steak I was given.
Is the chef correct in his statement about the aged steak or is this just an excuse ????
