Molly Schuyler Steak: Nebraska Woman Beats Joey Chestnut Record


AMARILLO, Texas—A competitive eater from Nebraska has set a record by devouring a 72-ounce steak at an Amarillo steakhouse, and then decided to chase it down with another 72 ounces.

The Amarillo Globe-News and the Twitter page for the Big Texan Steak Ranch say Molly Schuyler on Monday downed the 4 ½-pound slab of beef in 4:58.

She then took a more pedestrian time of 9:59 to finish the second.

“The second one, I wasn’t going really for time,” she said. “There was no point. I had to do it in under an hour, so I was fine.”

The restaurant invites anyone to a free meal if they eat not just the 72-ounce steak, but also a baked potato, shrimp, a salad and bread roll in less than an hour.

The previous record was 8:52, held by Joey Chestnut.

We witnessed history,” Big Texan co-owner Danny Lee said. “If there’s a zombie apocalypse, I want to stay away from this girl.”

In February, Schuyler, a 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother from Bellevue, Nebraska, ate 363 chicken wings in 30 minutes to set a record in Philadelphia.
