“You said you're being open about it/not lying to anyone. I think this is a smart and fair decision.”

“If anyone complains, then they need to suck it up or pay for their own meal from somewhere else.“
“YTA, yeah. Let people eat how they want.”
“My advice, get the different cuts but ask people what cut they want AND how they want it cooked.”
“Don’t cheap out on those people because of their preferences, focus instead on cooking it properly.“
“YTA. I like my steak well done and I can 100% tell the difference.”
“YTA- I’d be really surprised if this didn’t create bad feelings from the well done folks.“
“NTA… I would tell them it’s a different cut with the right marbling for medium well or well done.”
In the spirited Reddit discussion, commenters found themselves divided on the matter. While some praised OP for their honesty in considering different steak cuts to cater to diverse preferences, others cautioned against potential pitfalls.
Some commenters expressed concern that serving cheaper cuts to those who prefer well-done steaks might lead to discomfort among some colleagues. Hopefully, OP can find a way to give their colleagues a party to remember.
