The Edible Web: America's Best Steak Houses
Posted by Charlie Harris

USA Today recently released their list of the  Top 10 Steakhouses in USA. Their choices include the likes of Bern's Steak House (Tampa), Bob's Steak & Chop House (Dallas), Bobo's (San Francisco), Carnevino (Las Vegas), Chicago Cut Steakhouse (Chicago), CUT (Beverly Hills), Elway's (Denver), Emeril's Delmonico (New Orleans), Peter Luger Steak House (Brooklyn) and The Precinct (Cincinnati). Read the full article here.

Quite an impressive selection of meat museums there. Just for fun, let's compare it to our own list of  America's 10 best steak houses. There's some overlap, but a few of our differing selections include The Angus Barn (Raleigh), Bone's (Atlanta), Cattleman's Steakhouse (Oklahoma City) and Charley's Steak House (Orlando). You can also browse our picks for the  best steak houses in the country in our top 50 cities.

Keeping things meaty, Eatocracy endorses  5 cuts of meat to purchase for grilling season. I do love a good skirt steak. (Try marinating it with beer, lime juice, cayenne, cumin and Allegro). 

Raining on the steak parade, Josh Ozersky explores The Problem with The American Steakhouse in a great article for Time magazine:

"Steakhouses are not really restaurants, in the strictest sense: they are closer in spirit to strip clubs or spas, places to which people repair for rites of costly self-indulgence, Dionysian revels in which stressed businessmen or harried wives vent their hypertension."

Agreed that the hefty pricetag at some steak houses is more for the nostalgia and the "No Girls Allowed" clubby atmosphere than the actual quality of the beef. 

In case you missed it, our resident chef, Dixie Wong, posted a fantastic Beef Wellington recipe to celebrate the return of Mad Men

When manning the grill, always ask yourself: What would Hank Hill do?
