Restaurant Serves Up 200oz Steak That Weighs More Than A Newborn Lamb
For meat-eaters, a steak is pretty much the holy grail of the dinnertime repertoire - whether it's a juicy fillet doused in peppercorn sauce for a special occasion, some cost-friendly, flash-fried hanger steak served with fries or even a slice taken from highly-prized Japanese Wagyu cattle.
But whatever the cut, arguably the main thing that gets us greedy folk going is sheer size.
Well, now one restaurant has just the trick, serving up a gigantic 200oz steak that weighs more than a newborn baby lamb. Yup, it sounds like all of your wildest dreams come true.
You'll find the mammoth steak at Cattlemans Steakhouse in Paignton, Devon - where, better still, it also comes served alongside garlic bread, chips, onion rings, mushrooms, tomatoes and coleslaw. What a spread, eh?
The steak costs £179 ($250), but is designed to be shared between four people - plus any group that completes the meal within one hour gets it free of charge. We believe that is the very epitome of what is called a win-win situation.
So far 10 groups have attempted it - but only two have finished it, meaning there's plenty of scope for you to swoop in and come out victorious. Victorious and full to the brim of delicious steak.
A spokesperson said: "Challenges seem to be all the rage, and we wanted to bring a bit of fun to the restaurant.
"We don't get people doing it every night, but we've had a few.
"The 200oz challenge is very doable. I've not tried it, I could never eat that amount of steak."
If the giant steak sounds like too much, the restaurant also has an 100oz steak challenge for one person, which costs £89 ($125). That one's only been completed once, so again, potential heroes should step forward.
And if steak challenges are your thing, another UK-based steakhouse has just the thing for you - and you won't need a gang of three other hungry carnivores to complete it, either.
The Ashville Steakhouse in Bristol challenges diners to take on a whopping 96oz t-bone, for which they have to pick a total of five sides from a list of ten.
Willing participants will be served the colossal six-pound steak and, from thereon out, valiant meat-lovers will be allotted one hour to finish the lot. If they manage it, the meal is completely free. If not, it will set them back £100 ($140).
Reckon you could hack it?
