    Do you still fancy a steakhouse for a big, important meal?

    Well, I’m just back from a trip to the US, and I can tell you that one of the main reasons steak is falling in popularity is that it is absolutely tasteless! Unless a steak is slathered in some kind of sauce, it’s just a rubbery piece of chewing gum. This is the result of the big difference between American and European farming practices.

    Steak is easy. Buy from a local butcher that buys whole cows (USA raised). Get 1inch thick strip steak, t-bone, or ribeye that is no more than $8.00/lb. Add olive oil, Worcestershire and salt and pepper or your favorite dry rub like Montreal seasoning (marinate for 1hr). Cook on med/high heat charcoal turning once. Let rest for 5mins. Enjoy with potatoes, veggies, and beer/wine. 1 meal at home cost less than $12, or at a steak house more than $40 or $50 plus tip. Experiment, experience, and enjoy.

    Why would anyone go out for a special meal and only have a healthy meal. Healthy meals are fine for every day at home but if I am having a birthday, anniversary etc. Forget the healthy options.

    If i was in a restaurant where people would fight for animal rights i would order a big steak as noticable as i could hoping for it to be prepared a little bit to late to ask the waiter. EXCUSE ME! WHERE IS MY STEAK. then i would consume it with a smile and tried to enjoy it as much as i can and show it even more smiling to the people fighing for the rights.

    What the real cause of this is the regulations are put in under the Obama Administration a man by the name of Cass Sunstein who wrote the book, "Nudge" a study in how to move people in ways they don't want to go by using regulations. He said he wanted that position because it gave him ultimate power. Regarding beef, he said he would drive prices up through regulatory policies so people couldn't afford beef anymore. Thus lowering greenhouse gasses.

    The only steak houses that will survive are the ones that can offer a whole package for the price. From a pretty waitress, tasty fresh bread, great appetizer choices, great deserts, a great ambiance, and of course a good steak. The steak house will never die.

    2008? That just means that were prefer to buy our own steaks and enjoy them with our family for CHEAPER. For a 20$ steak I can buy like 3-4 steaks and prepare them at home AND they even TASTE better. Olive oil, salt/pepper, italian seasoning, pan at high heat, sear and done. kthxbai~! We will not miss you. :)
    Also those who argue that we paying for convenience of not having to cook and clean. That is totally a non-issue because I am not fucking lazy. Shots fired. I can whip up a steak dinner with potatoes and veggies in under 30 minutes. Dishes and counters done in 10-15 minutes. No time wasted in waiting at a restaurant or gasoline used that day.
    Oh but wait, what about the poor servers and their jobs??? Sorry, you're gonna have to adapt and get a different or better job just like everyone else has to. No more tips for you.

    The main reason no one goes out to eat anymore is cops waiting to pounce as soon as you pull out of the parking lot. A DUI can cost you north of $5,000 plus a crazy raise in your automobile insurance.
    I've never been busted for a DUI but then again, I stopped going out a long time ago. Why risk it?
