Nebraska woman wolfs down 2 4 1/2-pound steaks

AMARILLO, Texas — A Nebraska woman celebrated breaking a Texas steakhouse’s speed record for eating a 4 1/2-pound slab of beef by polishing off another one.

The Amarillo Globe-News (http://bit.ly/TQGbwz ) and the Big Texan Steak Ranch’s Twitter page say that competitive eater Molly Schuyler finished her first steak in 4 minutes and 58 seconds. The previous record was 8 minutes and 52 seconds.

The 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother from Bellevue, Nebraska, ate her second 4 1/2-pound steak in 9 minutes and 59 seconds.

The restaurant foots the bill for anyone who can eat one of the steaks, a baked potato, shrimp, a salad and bread roll in under an hour, so Schuyler ate those side dishes as well.

In February, the self-described “bottomless pit” ate 363 chicken wings in 30 minutes in Philadelphia.
