AMARILLO, Texas (AP) -- A competitive eater from Nebraska has set a record by devouring a 72-ounce steak at an Amarillo steakhouse, and then decided to chase it down with another 72 ounces.
The Amarillo Globe-News and the Twitter page for the Big Texan Steak Ranch say Molly Schuyler on Monday downed the 4 1/2-pound slab of beef in 4:58.
She then took a more pedestrian time of 9:59 to finish the second.
The restaurant invites anyone to a free meal if they eat not just the 72-ounce steak, but also a baked potato, shrimp, a salad and bread roll in less than an hour. The previous record was 8:52.
In February, Schuyler, a 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother from Bellevue, Nebraska, ate 363 chicken wings in 30 minutes to set a record in Philadelphia.
