Hey steakheads! There’s a new cut of beef that’s been discovered!
Yes, a 12oz cut has been “discovered” and is likely to be the last cut of meat to be found and named on the beef carcass. The cut has roughly the same taste and marbling of a New York Strip and can be portioned into pieces as small as four ounces, but who wants to eat a 4oz steak?
Here’s the sad part: the piece of meat debuted at the Trump International Hotel, located, naturally, on the main Las Vegas strip, which is where the name comes from. It gets weirder: because we live in such a litigious society the discovery comes with all sorts of intellectual property rights, so get ready for legal loopholes if you try to cut that certain piece of meat from any given cow and pass it off as your own – that cow’s ass belongs to Tony Mata of Mata & Associates, a food industry group with a whole bunch of lawyers (probably)!
According to a Gizmodo report, Mata has arranged for distribution, so hopefully you’ll be seeing the Vegas Strip on your plate sometime very soon.
