Gone are the days I could give a 32oz ribeye a run for the money.  Anymore that would be a meal and a doggy bag for 2 more meals.

Shoot, I have a hard time finishing an 8oz. steak!  We get thick NY strips from the butcher counter (12-14oz.) because we like them with a good char on both sides and MR inside.  I can eat about half.  MH doesn't finish his either.  There's a place in Traverse City that serves 18oz. strips.  Used to be able to polish it off, no problem.  Not any more.

For me, great steak has a lot in common with great bourbon:  more than 12 oz. in an evening will cause regret !

I can easily polish off even an 18-20 oz. steak, and I'm 44. I haven't slowed down at all over the years, but I do keep my steak consumption down to only a few every year. Too expensive. My 12-year old son does a great job marinating steaks, and then I put them on the grill. And maybe twice a year we splurge on a big steakhouse dinner - my favorite is Gene & Georgetti's in Chicago.
 
My older son is 15 and he could eat any size steak. He makes them disappear very quickly. I think the biggest he's had is close to 30 oz. He didn't break a sweat, and then had a few bites of his brothers's steak.

When my grandson was a teenager I'd get him a 48-ounce porterhouse and I'd get an 18-ounce strip for myself. He'd polish off the medium rare porterhouse in a flash and then he'd usually ask whether I was through with mine. I usually had about a third eaten by then.

Well, it is MR for me. The nice thing about leftover steak is that, oncce it is cold, you can slice it super thin and make a nice sandwich with it, or use it on a salad. My two favorites.

Up to a few years ago we would have the local butcher cut our Porterhouse or Rib Steaks about 1.5 " thick, to have them weigh-in at close to two pounds each. We would do two of them for the two of us, with Jan saving the strip side of her's for a snack later.  Then we started doing just one... filet side for her and strip side for me. That allows us to get a thick cut that grills well and yet is more within the realistic eating range for our reduced input desires.

You all realize 4 ounces or about the size of a deck of cards is considered a serving for meat at meal to maintain weight.

I like it on buttered white toast with salt and pepper.

never thought about it on toast, I love it on white bread.  Doesnt the toast make it too crumbly?

I have my butcher cut me about a 24 oz. porterhouse , I use a Lodge cast iron grate that fits on my Weber grill and oil it well. You get a great char with nice grill marks, you can cook it really hot without any flare ups. I let it sit about ten minutes and slice it a la Peter Luger, whatever juices are in the well of a 60+ year old Pyrex platter (it was my mom's), I pour over the slices. It feeds my wife & I and I always have enough leftover for a sandwich, I also like them on white buttered toast or just white bread & butter.
