There’s an old saying in my family: “Eating a gratuitous amount of red meat is next to godliness.” It’s just plain good for you. Hell, it’s good for America. Red meat — steak, in particular — is the best food there is. Just typing this now has got me craving a juicy, medium-rare slab of cow flesh.
While I, like many of you, pride myself on being able to pack away a good amount of steak, when it comes down to it, I’m an amateur. Sure, I’ll crush a 24 ouncer now and then, but compared to some folks out there, that’s bush-league.
One woman, however, recently put me and every other steak-eating American to shame. Participating in the famous Big Texan Challenge, the 120 pound Molly Schuyler, a mother of four, broke the house record when she demolished not one, not two, but three steaks in under an hour. In fact, she finished them in under thirty minutes. That’s not all she ate, though.
From Sports Illustrated:
In addition to the massive pieces of meat, each dinner at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo includes a baked potato, a shrimp cocktail, a salad and a roll, and Schuyler finished her first one in just four minutes and 18 seconds, which broke a record she set last year by 40 seconds.
Holy. Shit. That’s insane. This woman ate roughly one-fifth of her body weight in food in under thirty minutes. She even started on a fourth steak, but stopped after a few bites because she was tired of the taste.
I don’t know about you, but to me, this lady is a hero. She’s an inspiration. She’s crushing steaks like it’s nobody’s business. I’m not sure how she does it, but damn, I respect the hell out of her..
