25 years ago, after trying various cuts of steaks I decided that the only one for me was T bone steak, but because it was expensive I could only afford it once a week, my logic was simple, better to look forward to a heavenly steak once per week than a bland steak every other day.

This brings me to my question, the other night a friend and I went to a steakhouse and I had the usual and he had a porterhouse steak,

what exactly is a porterhouse steak?

A Porterhouse steak is on the upper right and left sides of the cow. (moo) It is either pan fried or broiled. Named after "port house" with in the 19th century were places travelers could stop and get a bite. In New York City a port house-keeper became famous for his Porterhouse steaks...and so the name stuck.

Porterhouse steaks are from the rear of the short loin. Check this out:

Thanks phoenix,

That was pretty instructive although I'm not sure I followed all of it.

I am now going for a chinese take away which requires absolutely no thinking about.

kev- Better watch it with Chinese takeout. I have heard that sometimes the protein in Chinese joints have not seen hide nor hair of a steer! Laughing

All right, All bloody right, I am now having a cold meat sandwich which nobody could possibly find fault with., It's a tongue and salad sandwich.

Take the piss out of that if you can.

Salad? Like green leaves?

O.K.
Interesting.


So you've got no friends to have tandoori with? Is that what you're saying?

O.K. Margo

since I have no chance of survival no-matter what I do, for my last meal on earth I'm gonna go out where I came in:

Fish and chips, mushy peas and two slices of crusty bread and butter.

O.K. Margo,

I am now reduced to having two boiled eggs with toast, and I would greatly appreciate a complete lack of discussion about which orofices eggs came from.

Yes max, from a creature that used to be alive. My wife always used to say, I could never eat anything that came out of an animals mouth (tongue) but she never had a problem eating eggs.

I think I'm going to live out my life on distilled water.
