48oz Steak Challenge at Don Shula's Steak House
Launched by former NFL coach Don Shula in 1989, this restaurant chain quickly gained a reputation as one of the best places in Florida to sink your teeth into some prime Angus beef. Each restaurant is themed after the Miami Dolphins' "Perfect Season" that Shula presided over in 1972, when the Dolphins became the only team in NFL history to finish the entire season undefeated.The chain is almost as famous for its 48oz Porterhouse steak, dubbed "The Shula Cut". Holidaymakers who manage to finish all of this titanic T-bone in one sitting are rewarded with induction into the restaurant's 48oz Club, which would certainly provide a few bragging rights back home. However, guests have their work cut out for them if they're planning to beat the record of superfan Taft Parker, who to date has eaten over 175 of the giant steaks - earning a commemorative football from Don Shula himself for his achievement.
