Went out for a meal last night with Mrs BTM and decided to push the boat out and go to local Harvester I ordered steak, as per, and requested it bluer than blue - in fact, don't cook it, just shout at it a little....Actually, just send it out raw. It came out as rare, not what I ordered so we kicked one up. Apprently, for legal reasons, they cannot cook it so blue however I've never had a problem anywhere else and waiters often try to talk me out of steak tartare! Is there a legal background to this or where the restaurant just being overly cautious? They refunded the cost so not whinging - just curious as to legal requirements to cook meat.
