The very best piece of steak I ever ate was Argentinian. Haven't a clue how "clean" it was but it was bloody tasty and tender.

As above. I used to go to Dusseldorf every year for a trade show. We'd go to the same restaurant each year to have a fillet steak accompanied by a jacket potato and sour cream. Best steak I have ever eaten.

We buy local (advantage of living in the country) where we can visit the farm at any time and see our beef growing up. They get some injections but no over the top hormones or anything like that and they are happy and cosseted because its only a small herd. It tastes really good but not quite as good as the Dexter we used to get......

On the whole, American beef is corn fed, and European beef is grass fed. Add to that the fact the Europe, especially the UK, had to change a lot of practices in the face of BSE, and that America pumps a s!$% load of steroids into their beef cattle, and I would feel safer eating European cows.

In Germany most of the supermarkets (bigger ones) sell argie bargie Steak. In fact I had one last Saturday night.

The Irish have made big inroads into the German supermarket scene, not only with meat products but also dairy products. In fact their T Bone is superb. Well packed in a box with the instructions on it. Even the Yanks are having a go; not sure how successful it is.

When back in the UK I buy my steaks from one of either two sources. The local butcher from a garden centre (I know) or from these people http://www.donaldrussel.com

Best steak I ever ate was in Florida last year, in a restaurant recommended by my Austrian boss. Ribeye, medium, 20oz. Melted in me gob!
Round here I quite enjoy the 14oz Aberdeen Angus in Wetherspoons on Tuesdays £9.99 with a free pint of beer. But that American steak (costing about 3 times as much) was the bollox.:thumbup:

On the menu they called it "Le Cheval" whatever that means, but it was lovely 2649

I've always found steak in the US to be far nicer than anything I have had in Europe, also far larger and thicker cuts.

Has to be clean IMO. They don't have the money to be able to doctor their beef with hormones, etc.
I had the fortune to be working in southern S. America for 9 years where not only could we get Argentinian beef in the supermarkets but also I had to travel regularly to Argentina for work. There is no finer source of quality beef in the world IMHO. :thumbup::thumbup:

The best steak I ever had was at a restaurant in Bondi, near Sydney. I assume it was Aussie beef, but I didn't ask. Best cooked, best presented, and served by a Dutch backpacker waitress with the most fantastic world class tits.

MIL went to Argentina and had steak.
She said it was like trying to eat concrete.

Probably fresh, where ours has rotted for a month or so before hitting the shops

So maybe my friends only think the steak was better in Spain ..because they were on vacation :lol:

And so they use meat glue across the pond???

I've had big steaks in the USA, and seem mostly ok but better steak can be had at home. Bigger isn't always best. South american is better than north american too imo.
I've had some truly awful s!$% steak in the usa too. Its all about the cooking.
I generally don't like anyone cooking my steak. I cook the best steak, far better than any so called chef :lol:

Probably. I had quite a few run-ins with Argies who still hadn’t forgiven us for the Falklands. Usually “name the time & place and you can have a 2nd dose” was enough to shut them up.

Even in butcher’s shops beef was always sold very “fresh” (i.e. red) because that’s apparently how the customers wanted to see it. I could never figure out why. Even so all the even half-decent restaurants would age their beef themselves before throwing it in the pan. I had some absolutely phenomenal steaks there and TBH never had a bad one.

If I'm hungry it's t-bone grilled medium rare. The odd week night it's a medium size ribeye. Best flavour I've had in recent years was from a butcher in Lucca - biggest t-bone I've ever seen, 2 fed 5 of us to stuffed!:lol: Still think our local butcher's meat is outstanding quality, matured for 30 days plus, tender, succulent and full of old fashioned flavour.:thumbup:

Best I have ever eaten was in Gdansk in a place called Delmonicocut which was a Wagyu/Kobe beef steakhouse. They did a Porterhouse steak which was over 1200g!!

Took this pic there. I wasn't looking at her tits honestly.

Used to go to a place in San Jose (yes, I still remember the way) for unbelievable Corn-fed Beef - simply the best, melt-in-the-mouth - and served in a Turf & Surf Combo was all you could eat !

Further north towards SFO was 'Franky, Johnny & Luigi too' - incredible Pizza compared to which UK stuff is complete garbage ...

Did that come with a radioactive readout as well.:lol:


All that the above counts on is. How it was cooked and how the individual likes their steak cooked. When the two come together then it is delicious, when either do not it is not and when both don't come together it is the worst steak they have had :lol:

Used to hang around that neck of the woods as a kid on my travels and seeing family based in Carmel.:smile: Great part of the world and, if you know where to look/go/local knowledge, the food can be as good as it gets.:thumbup: As you say, proper pizza can be sublime.26

Always pray the chef heeds the waiters instructions as to how I like my steak delivered, medium rare.:smirk: It's a simple enough, since any half decent cook can replicate at home, test to cook steak properly and if you can't, and you're a professional chef, then you shouldn't be anywhere near a kitchen.:speechless:
