Remember when big steaks were all the rage? at one time in the 80's you were not a man if you ate anything less than a 16 oz bit of rump. 24 oz steaks were the beast of choice around my way. These days it's all 8 and 12oz bits of leather.
Is it just me? 72oz doesn't sound that difficult. I couldn't b sure ad I've never eaten a 72 oz steak before
do you have to finish the sides?
Wow, well what can I say? Is this a deal, freebie or competition style challenge. Whatever it is, sounds positively 'filling'.
Its hard but I have done it, serious, nice canadian beef with onion rings and beer... Best night ever...

do you have to finish the sides?

I'd say you have to finish the sides
Do you get a free heart transplant included?
That's disgusting! Olives! Ugh!;)
hmmmm a snack when your 20 stone
I'd give that a go!
Sides and all.... lots of iron ... Get it rare.

But if the beef is tough then no good. I got to say most 8.00 - 12.00 steaks I have had in the UK are GROSS.. Tough Right from the Kill and to the plate, no maturing.

Love the 28 day extra special asda stuff though, very nice, but expensive.
And morrisons beef is good as well, lots of flavour and very tender

Well what a surprise. All the people in the photo eating this are fat.
Don't seem that big... any info on success rate
I have 6ft 5" hairy irish beast of a friend who would definitely give this a go!

it's a new challenge, only one person in that picture finished it!
72 oz! That's what I would call a starter. Do you get some bread with this to soak up the juice?

Where is 'your way'. I think it depends on 'where' you're eating and/or your butcher. Supermarket shoppers have been conditioned by supermarket marketers for years. The average Mr and Mrs Housewife go into a supermarket and look for a nice bright red steak and think, 'ooow that's a nice one, we'll have that'. I'll fully agree that red meat that is bright red will be VERY fresh. So fresh, in certain cases the beast will have been in the field the day before! That is NOT what you want. You want a steak that has been hung on a carcass for a few weeks in a cold room. The flesh (meat), breaks down whilst hanging. It will take on a dark colour. It will NOT smell. If it smells, it's not well hung, it's off. Influenced by the 'Chef Shows' on TV, MR and Mrs Housewife have ventured into their local supermarkets asking for matured beef. This has been taken up by the supermarkets now. And they're not slow at recognising a money spinner.... Cha Ching! Lets double the price!

The moral of this story is, forget supermarkets for meat. Find yourself a good local butcher (a rare breed, most have been run out of business by the supermarkets!). He will serve you meat of better quality at a better price than ANY supermarket guaranteed.

As to this 'deal'. It looks more of an abuse of the digestive system. I REALLY am not a snob but it doesn't look like a nice night out. I'll give it a miss.
4.5 lbs of beef ,easy squeeze!

It's 4.5LB of meat!! About 2KG.Same weight as 2 bags of sugar. That's a lot of meat in an hour!!

How on earth would you cook a bit of steak that size without it still mooing on the inside? I like my steak rare, but I also like it dead!

Tasty!
anyone remember a movie Called the great outdoors with John Candy and Dan Aykroyd. Steak Challenge? look at the size of those maggets...
Do you know the people in the picture? Did they manage it?

Also, Pooka: that was my first thought as well. "He's eaten it all, there's nothing left on that plate but fat and gristle!"

You finish in the oven or even deep fry it.
Rump steak... Good luck with eating 72oz of it, horrible stuff when in excess
Blasphemous

Totally agree - go to South Africa , best steaks in the world and most were 30 days plus, brilliant. These should come in a choice of Dunlop or Goodyear !
When eating out turns into a competition its just quantity over quality....in my opinion this is ridiculous.
72oz is a lot. I dont see the point. Waste of a good cow.

The general quality of food in Canada is way superior to UK ime

how much is that? looks good
I ate 2Kg of cooking bacon this morning with a couple of sausages and some black pud. This should be easy. Luckily I'm only 14St and 6'2" though I suspect a doctor would call me obese.

Chuck a couple of orders of yams on the side and I'd be done for a few hours.
