How to cook well-done steak in Monster Hunter Rise

To cook well-done steak in Monster Hunter Rise, you first need to know how to cook steak at all. When you've slain a few small monsters and carved open their corpse, you'll receive some raw meat. Hold L then press Y until you cycle along to the BBQ Spit. Use it by letting go of L and pressing Y again and your hunter will prop up a folding chair with a spit above an open fire and start cooking.

Pay attention to the texture of the meat you're cooking. The change from raw to rare is obvious, and pressing A here will give you a rare steak. Not bad, but it only restores a moderate amount of stamina. When it becomes burnt, you'll be aware too; it'll go black and has the chance to reduce your stamina instead of filling you up.

What you're looking for is a brief moment between rare and burnt. If you pay extremely close attention to the steak, you'll notice the texture slightly change as it goes from rare to well-done. Hit A as soon as you see this change – you have less than a second before it becomes burnt, so you need to be quick. It's approximately eight seconds from the moment you place the raw meat down, or 11.5 seconds after you press Y to bring out the BBQ Spit.

When you do it once, you'll know what you're looking for and should be able to achieve well-done steak consistently. To complete the delivery for Fugen the Elder, simply return to the village with at least one well-done steak and talk to him.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
