Shula's 48-ounce Porterhouse satisfies the heartiest of appetites.

By Jan Walsh

If you can't get enough of a good steak, join the club. Shula's Steak House offers a steak that will satisfy any appetite. This 48-ounce Porterhouse is made of Shula's own certified Angus beef, breed on The Graham Angus Farm in Albany, Georgia. And if you make the cut, by can finishing this 48-ounce Porterhouse, you become a member of The 48 Ounce Club.
The 48 Ounce Club began when Taft Parker finished his one hundredth 48-ounce Porterhouse, and Coach Don Shula presented him with a commemorative football to honor the accomplishment. Today the club boasts over 300,000 and still growing. After finishing—all of—the steak, each member is honored with a plaque on Shula’s website.

It takes 40 minutes to cook this three-inch thick steak. So order an appetizing bowl of fresh Lobster Bisque while waiting and a bottle of Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 for pairing—the juiciness of the fruit is the perfect complement with the tender and juicy beef. A Porterhouse includes a strip and filet, so the steak can be carved tableside for sharing. Yes, I was defeated by the 48 ounces and happily shared half of it. And finishing half doesn’t count for joining the club. But winners never quit. So maybe next time!
