    I was just trying to offer my opinion. [​IMG] I don't think you're a girl.

    I'm not trying to pile on, but I'm not a fan of filet mignon either. I love a fatty steak.

    Also, good on you for the change in diet and strength. In particular the bench; 205 @ 5X5 is solid at that weight. I'm almost your twin @ 6'2" 163lb and I would hard pressed to get more than a rep in at 205.

    A more subtle version of the F150 driver who makes fun of the M3 driver at a gas station because he "can't haul cargo" and "drives a little car." Stupidity mixed with insecurity.
    I love that sort of argument. I remember someone basically trying to assert that he was better than I because, since I am skinny, I could not "fireman carry someone out of a dangerous situation" and therefore was doing a disservice to everyone for not working out so I could be able to do so. I was just like ??? I'm not a fireman[​IMG] Small town life[​IMG] No concept of what's important to them might not be important to me.

    Speaking of steaks and game my all time favorite is elk. Personally I find that it tastes much better than beef, is extremely healthy, and pretty cost effective if you dust off your rifle and shoot it yourself.

    It's not that I'm hurt by the opinions, it's that I find them asinine and surprisingly stupid considering the demographic of this forum. For some reason steak appears to elicit chest thumping, homoerotic size comparisons, and baseless gender associations from otherwise (seemingly) highly educated individuals. Your post is a rather humorous case study in unsolicited one-upmanship and pretension. Insecure much, but why?

    Interesting.


    Your being surprised that on a male-dominant forum there are strong opinions about red meat does say a lot about your naivete and stupidity.

    Very nice restaurants, in fact. Everyone has a different opinion and I simply expressed mine and that of many chefs. I certainly can understand that you dislike ribeye, but I love the full flavors of ribeye. I have an AOS in Culinary Arts, a BS in Food Service Management, and a Masters in Hospitality Management. I put 15 years into high-end restaurants and I've been a chef-instructor for the past 15. In addition, I'm a certified chef with the American Culinary Federation. Those qualifications means nothing in regards to whether or not you or I like beef tenderloin, but I can say from experience that most chefs wouldn't be caught dead ordering filet mignon in a restaurant. I've cooked & sold plenty of filet mignon. It's easy to cook, easy to sell and makes a great presentation, but I always considered the person ordering a ribeye, skirt, or hanger steak to be a real beef fan. Again, I'm not knocking what you like, just letting you know most chefs aren't huge fans of filet mignon. This is from Anthony Bourdain: They also think they’re going to impress [chef and Top Chef judge] Tom Colicchio with filet mignon. Any chef who has been in the business for any length of time is just bored to death by filet mignon. To see people use that as an ingredient over and over again, they lose points right away. You can see Tom die a little whenever anybody uses it. I'm not suggesting Anthony Bourdain is any type of super-chef, but he's brutally honest.
    ehh... again I really must question exactly which chefs you're referring to and what kind of circles you're operating in. At least the people I've worked for, all french, mind you, and quite enormous in stature (if that matters), are not afraid to use it and quite enjoy it. I can also name several chefs who cook with it often. I mean, watch any show with Gordon Ramsey in it and I think you're libel to see a filet once every 3 or so episodes. In any case, eat whatever the hell you want. My tastes as far as a rare piece of meat runs leaner than most people's, and I know that. I can't say I'm the biggest steak fan ever either, but then again most steak fans are quite big, so I'd also not be that way. I've extolled my love of Bison, which I'm actually far more likely to buy than beef at this point. It has a sort of meaty spice to it that I really enjoy and of course, it is quite healthy. Keep in mind I eat duck probably twice a week, some type of braised lamb/pork at least once a week, foie, and at least 2 deserts, so I'm not health freak.

    I forgot. I should also mention that as someone blessed with a huge cock, that the resulting weight loss has made it even more ridiculous in proportion to my body. I used to get "umm..wow" now I get more .. "holy..f..WTF..how?"

    Do you speak Spanish? My friend just forwarded me a cool chef wanted posting, but a requirement is being able to speak Spanish in addition to English.

    I mean I could see how this would be considered a dick measuring contest but it bothers me that some people would assert so confidently that no one likes filet steaks (then quoting Bourdain of all fucking people... granted he did allow that he is not super chef - very right on that one). It just isn't true, but whatever.

    Mi español se mejora cada dÃa pero es no exactamente allà todavÃa. I probably butchered that, thereby proving what I was trying to say.

    You know how I feel on Bourdain. I almost feel foolish to be on the same side as him.

    It's a head chef position at an American restaurant opening in Buenos Aires. Interested? You get to hire people build the kitchen and menu and shit.

    [​IMG] Way above my head man. I can barely cook. Thanks for the heads up though.
