Calling All Carnivores: Steaks on Top 5 Restaurants — Vote for Your Favorite
You might consider your meat cravings satisfied, because on last night’s episode of Top 5 Restaurants, Food Network traveled from coast to coast to discover America’s best steaks. Hosts Sunny Anderson and Geoffrey Zakarian revealed these juicy, meaty and, in some cases, fatty meats to you in a countdown. Find out below which restaurants made the cut, and read about the succulent steak that topped the list.
The show kicked off at RPM Steak in Chicago, where diners take a midday break to dive into “The Duke.” The fat trimmings of this 10-ounce rib eye render down into “beef butter,” a mouthwatering sauce that the chefs coat the meat with before broiling it until tender. Next, the show traveled to San Francisco for the prime rib roast at House of Prime Rib. This restaurant spent years developing its roasting technique, which takes a bit of elbow grease. After the meat cooks in a tightly packed mound of coarse rock salt, the chefs must retrieve it with a shovel. Ranking third on the list was the New York strip steak for two at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse in Houston. This 32-ounce steak is dry-aged in-house, cooked bone-in and carved tableside. The Pine Club in Dayton, Ohio, was the show’s runner-up for its flavorful 20-ounce bone-in rib eye that’s been served with irresistibly golden fried onion rings for almost 70 years. Top 5 Restaurants ended with a winning combination of filet mignon and sirloin: the porterhouse for two at Brooklyn’s Peter Luger Steakhouse. With carefully selected meat, it takes just a pinch of salt and clarified butter to season the steak that earned the top spot on this week’s countdown.
