If there was perhaps one food on the planet Earth that was evidence alone of God’s existence, it’s steak. Few cuts of meat are as universally adored by humanity as a steak. The aroma of a prime cut is enough to set mouths watering and hearts pumping. The feel of delicious red meat between your teeth is at once a reminder of primal beginnings, of cavemen roasting meat over an open flame, and a confirmation of how far we’ve come as a society, sitting comfortably in a restaurant while your sirloin is flame-cooked to perfection. Around the world, talented chefs of every discipline have devoted themselves to recipes that pay tribute to steak, the most glorious food ever bestowed upon a humble human. Here are some of the most delicious.
