That is so good to know. Because a couple days ago while I was shopping at Winco they had
Progresso soups on a big , attention grabbing display for only 89c each.
So I bought my usual clam chowder, then I saw pot roast soup, bought it.

But as I was walking away my eye caught the chick n dumplings, and I had to do a dbl take
cuz I'd never seen it before. Altho I didn't buy it, I will next time.

I'm really surprised at how good they are. I usually just make my own soups.

Default Where did you have the best steak of your life?

I have to say Homeland Steaks that I bought off Groupon.

I was pleasantly surprised by their quality and taste.

Jess & Jim's, an old school steakhouse in Kansas City. Been around since the 1930s.

It's the place that Calvin Trillin reviewed favorably in a Playboy article back in the day, which is something they still play up.

Many years ago. Argentinian restaurant in Georgetown, Washington, DC many years ago. Churrasco style. Never forgot it. Nor the salad!

I am a vegetarian now. Go figure.

great thread!!!


tough to pinpoint the best or one steak that was so much better than the others


I've had many prime grade porterhouse steaks and rib-eyes..

those were like butter ,,

ive had better ones at home...tho I haven't been to many of the better steakhouses as others have,,

one year before Christmas.

I took two prime grade bone in ribs and aged them 28 days in the cooler..(dry-aged)

one of the ribs was prime rib for Christmas, dinner ,and the other rib,,,,i sliced thick and we had on the grill
those were awesome,,,,from flavor to texture... a priviledged eating experience....

A Brazilian barbeque place, I -think- it was San Antonio, Texas. The bacon-wrapped filet mignon were amazing. I really wasn't much of a meat-eater then - whenever we went to a steakhouse I always preferred the lobster, shrimp, or chicken entree and never intentionally picked the beef. But this place converted me. I actually LIKE steak now. But I still prefer it just slightly pink in the middle. Just a degree or two cooler than medium-well.

Not Outback.

I think probably at the Porterhouse in Anchorage. I wonder if it still exists.
