Student or Learner
Can we ever use the expression "well-cooked" instead of "well-done" for meat, please?
Thank you very much for your help
In the US, it "well done" in the context of meat refers to how long it was cooked. Rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, and well done. I wouldn't say a "well-cooked steak" to mean a "well-done steak."
Something that is well cooked has been cooked in a good way.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
