For those people who can barely finish a petite sirloin, this video seemingly will defy the laws of nature. In it, Molly Schuyler, a competitive eater and mother of four from Minnesota, demolishes a 72-ounce steak in 2 minutes and 44 seconds.
Seriously. You have to see this.
Schuyler ousted Peter "Furious Pete" Czerwinski as the reigning 72-ounce steak-eating champ. His previous world record for Fastest Eating of a 72-Ounce Steak was 6 minutes and 48 seconds. The incredible eating feat took place at Sayler's Old Country Kitchen in Portland, Oregon.
