Serving 10 Tons A Week - Peter Luger's
Just saw this show repeated on the Travel Channel tonight and again, the commentator stated they serve 10 tons of beef a week...Food Paradise "Steak" was the name of the show. I posted on this once before and everyone did a double take; 10 tons a week?
Some other things I noticed in watching this again..A battery of upright broilers..Seemed to be at least 6 of them. They produce 800 degrees..They put the meat on the broiler with just salt and pepper and then they remove it at a speficied doneness, put some clarified butter on a broiling dish, put the steak on it, slice it up just as it will eventually arrive at the table, and throw it back under the broiler to finish it.
They demand that the waiters pick up their orders within minutes so it can arrive at the customer's table still sizzling hot. They will not reveal the length of time they age their meat...They favor Black Angus and Hereford steers..they do not like Texas Longhorn steers.
They do not recommend putting their steak sauce on their steak. They recommend ordering the bacon and breaking it up in pieces and putting it on the tomato and onion salad with the sauce.
