Inspired by conversations on the FOOD52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun. Today, Amanda shows us three ways to tell if a steak is medium rare.

A perfect medium rare steak is a glorious thing: rosy, juicy, with just the right amount of char. And, as Amanda shows, it's easy to achieve. Here, she shares three temperature-testing techniques that will guarantee meat cooked just to your liking. Take your pick ... and dig in. (Like we did -- just watch for the end of the video.
