Rare Steak refers to an exploitable image of a steak accompanied with dialogue of a waiter telling a patron that his steak is rare. The punchline is the steak is labeled with something the poster finds particularly rare.
The meme appears to originate from the twitter account @d_duhwit who compared a photo of rare steak to the rarity of the phrase “Respect for other people's opinions.” The meme generated buzz when Instagram account @sspamtrashh posted the tweet to over 50,000 followers on March 22nd, 2017 and received nearly 2,000 likes.
On March 24th, 2017 The Chive picked up the Rare Steak image and featured it on their website in a meme roundup with the original phrase “Respect for other people's opinions.”
The meme remained relatively dormant until June 12th, 2017, when Instagram user overcooked.doggo posted the first variation where "a quiet black woman" is deemed rare. The post gained over 10,000 likes (shown below).
On the 13th, Redditor Simonkjj reposted the photo to /r/MemeEconomy, where it gained over 13,000 points and began to spark imitators. User throwawayyylmao0o0o0 posted one of the next examples, gaining over 90 points in 17 hours (shown below, left). User Mr_Privileged posted a high-resolution template image on the 14th (shown below, right).
Meanwhile, one self-referential post by Drunk_N_Depressed did particularly well on /r/me_irl, gaining over 15,000 points in 13 hours (shown below).
