In order to recognise what you are to be feeling practice the following:
Open the palm of your hand relaxed.
Take the index finger of your other hand and push on the fleshy area between the thumb and the base of the palm. This is what raw meat feels like.
Next take your index finger to the tip of your thumb.
The fleshy area below the thumb should give quite a bit.
This is what a steak cooked to rare feels like. Your middle finger pressed gently on your thumb will allow the flesh beneath your thumb to feel like medium rare steak.
Your middle finger pressed gently on your thumb will allow the flesh beneath your thumb to feel like medium rare steak.

Now gently press the tip of your pinky and your thumb together.
Again feel the fleshy area below the thumb. It should feel quite firm.
