  "The Poke Test" for testing the doneness of steaks

Listen to Steve Raichlen describe "the poke test"

Make the "OK" sign by touching the tip of your thumb to the tip of your forefinger.

Then press the fleshy part of your thumb. A rare steak will give the same amount of resistance.

Move to the next finger for a medium-rare steak.

Move to your ring-finger for a medium steak.

Move to your pinky and you've ruined your steak!
