Where's the beef???

For a mere $164.95 plus shipping and handling, you can order two (count em'!) "Tomahawk" long bone ribeye chops from Allen Brothers, the company that supplied the steaks seen on last night's episode of Top Chef. These dry aged beauties are about an inch and a half thick, and weigh in at 30/34 oz. each.

If you're too impatient to wait for delivery, you can visit your local Whole Foods, where the fine folks in the butcher department will cut and french dry aged rib eye into "tomahawk chops" for about $35.00 each ($5.00 less per chop than quoted by my local butcher!). Bon appetit!

Grass fed or feed lot?

Methinks grass fed beef would not have that kind of marbling.

I am kind of disgusted that they allowed amateurs to butcher those expensive steaks. I want to know what they did with them when all was said and done...throw them in the garbage?

Actually I think they showed the chefs eating them later back at the condo.

Yes, I saw the chefs eating them...but you must remember how many each chef butchered...while I love a steak, I don't think any of them can possibly eat that many!

I imagine the production crew also got in on the Flintstone Meatfest. I seriously doubt any of that good meat went to waste. The smell alone would drive them mad.

Yummy looking steak! I may have BUSTED Top Chef in a minor way!

Not as dramatic as the blogger who noticed the haircut editing thing but still a BUST!

Was that you guys?

Yum yum yum. Man that looks tasty. I'm guessing that when you order one of these at Tramonto's its like $100 for the steak, and it serves two. Yum.

I wonder how much a bag of frozen scallops goes for at Allen Brothers?
