In case anyone wondered where the term “Rare” came from. My daughter is a waitress at Cheesecake factory. And she learned today the reason why that term got thrown around. Because back in the Steel mill days . When they got a break. or in between shifts. They did not have a lot of time to eat. They had 4-5 beers. And they always rushed the cook. That’s why the meat was not well done. NO Time. Men ate cannibal burgers. Raw meat.
