Steak Expensive

Screen Shot 2014-07-11 at 10.23.00 AMIf you enjoy going to restaurants to order enormous slabs of meat cut from the flank of large animals that is then to left to rot (in a good way lol) for many days before being slapped under a flaming broiler, you have probably noticed something in recent months, as international demand for beef has intersected with drought that has ravaged cattle herds: It now seems "a bit like buying a diamond, doesn't it? Well that's the direction things are going in. During my years of reviewing steakhouses at Bloomberg News, I rarely spent less than $150 per person on any given visit. Enjoy your beef while you can afford it." Or just cook it yourself.

Balk's piece, in addition to being an Awl Classic (TM), makes the valid point that cooking steak is easy, with the obvious implication that paying someone many dollars to do it is silly.
