AMARILLO - A competitive eater from Nebraska has devoured a 72-ounce steak at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo to set a new record.

The Amarillo Globe-News and the restaurant's Twitter page say Molly Schuyler on Monday downed the 4 ½-pound slab of beef in 4:58.

She apparently wasn't sated so she ate a second one, taking a more pedestrian 9:59 to finish it.

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.

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