Extreme eating challenges have become a big food trend in recent years. Some restaurants offer clients the chance to attempt to eat huge amounts of food in exchange for fame and glory, offering free meals and other memorabilia to those who complete the challenge successfully.
One of the most famous food challenges in the United States is held at The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, where diners are challenged to eat an entire meal centered around a 72-ounce steak in less than an hour.
Diners who complete the challenge successfully are given their meal for free, and are given a commemorative t-shirt and have their picture taken to remember their feat!
The entire meal that contestants must eat includes a 72-ounce steak, a shrimp cocktail, a baked potato, a salad, and a roll. That’s an absolutely gargantuan amount of food for anyone to eat in a week, let alone in less than one hour!
The Big Texan Steak Ranch now even offers a live stream of all contestants on their website that attempt the challenge. Friends and family can follow your attempt to make history even if they can’t join you at the restaurant!
So, what do you think? Could you defeat the 72-ounce steak challenge?
