Clue/Question:  After tasting his perfectly cooked, medium-rare steak, the customer said this.

Answer:  WELL DONE

(Simple, yet effective!  Besides being a new word, I had a little difficulty in getting “spoil”.  I think I generally tend towards splitting up the vowels, and that obviously doesn’t work in this case.  It’s not new, but I also was a little slow getting “tanned”.  Hey, look!  Art imitating real life!  The sun and my skin do NOT get along very well.  I also am not a fan of past tense verbs as clue words, so it takes a little longer for my brain to go there.  The other two clue words jumped off the page, for me.  Everything was jumbled very well, and the answer letter layout wasn’t obvious at all.  I love the exclamation:  Well done!  I always imagine an older British lady, or gentleman, saying it.  Well done, sirrah!  As for the steak?  I prefer mine medium-rare.  Sometimes even really rare!  Bloody hell, you say?  The waiter looks sufficiently snooty.  Is the diner supposed to be anyone Jeff knows, or just a guy?  He looks like he could be a known someone.  That’s about it, guys.  Be well, do good . . . and tip generously, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I know, for some, the above steak is more rare, than medium-rare. (You well done eaters.)  But, for the blood thirsty animals, like me, it’s medium-rare.   —   YUR
