The Great Steak debate..

It´s important... make no mis-Steak about it....

sunny 8 °C

So because I am from Alberta, Canada I hear so much about Alberta steak.. and of course I do my own research... using simple tools like salt pepper, garlic and charcoal ( YES I am the old fasioned kind when it comes to a really good steak).
So how good is Alberta beef.. really?????
Well the Europeans, especially the Germans, Belgiums and Swiss I have spoken to have waxed rhapsodic about Argentine beef.
As I am in the buses, peering outside while travelling accross the vast Patagonian steppe, miles and miles of nothing but grazing, I see thousands of hectares of beef country. In this land the average size ranch is about 50000 hectares with larger farms around 70000 hectares.. IMAGINE that!!!. All the beef here is produced on grass fed land.. yup!!! there is no nasty smell from feedlots here!
So what do I think you ask?
Well let´s say and I think I´ve said this before.. I might have to declare the extra er.. midriff weight to the customs officials.. so when I give my opinion.. it is not without some significant research. OH!!!! no I have just realized I am flying with Continental Airlines too.. and they charge for each piece of baggage.. OH NO!!! if they find out I am heavier now than when I left... or paid for my ticket... yikes!!!!
SO what is it_ well in my unbiased opinion... it´s steak knives down to Alberta Beef.. yup.. despite the beauty of grass fed beef and it´s leaner qualities.. ALberta beef is tastier and much more tender... it sure is....
So there it is.. I just said it.. so what is your favourite beef.. and that is beef on a plate..
