Pittsburgh Rare

Standard

“Pittsburgh Rare” is a term for a steak cooked so that the outside is seared (black) and the inside stays rare (blue). Alternatively referred to as “black and blue,” “Chicago-style Rare,” I have no idea where this term comes from. Wikipedia has an explanation, but without any citation, and some internet research doesn’t turn anything up.

  1. Best served with a Pittsburgh salad: Iceberg lettuce and a few vegetables topped with coleslaw, french fries, cheese, and ranch dressing.
