Guys To Split Steak 2-for-1 Today

by TMF Braden

Tom Smith and Ed Jones, two guys who will be grilling a porterhouse steak in the backyard this evening, plan to split the steak 2-for-1 after its completion, according to Smith.

"It's a really big steak and I think it'll be more than enough for two," said Smith, who estimated the size of the steak at about 30 ounces.

Splitting steak is a common practice for cooks who believe their steak would be better served to multiple diners who might not be otherwise able to finish the entire portion.

But cooking experts say the misconception that a steak split increases the total amount of meat befuddles many novice backyard grillers.

"Hey, it's still just a 30-ounce steak," said Chef Paul Prud'homme. "Sure, it's two pieces instead of one, but no meat will be added as a result of the process."

Smith and Jones are expected to complement their steak with potato salad, apple pie and Miller Lite.
