With a rich heritage of ranchers and cowboys, we’re already huge meat lovers here in Big D. And for lovers of huge meat, have we got a list you’ll enjoy. Here are hefty, hearty slabs fit for giant appetites or perfect for sharing between two or more ravenous diners. We even suggest some sides and drink pairings, if you’ve got room for ’em.

  • Prime Rib-Eye at SER Steak + Spirits

    How Big: 22 ozs.
    Juicy Details: Aged for 45 days and served with tomato chutney, olive oil potatoes and hollandaise sauce.
    Side Dish: The epic housemade tater tots, of course!
    The Damage: $56

  • Tomahawk Chop at Pyramid Restaurant

    How Big: 32 ozs.
    Juicy Details: This Niman Ranch bone-in rib-eye comes with potato silk, heirloom root vegetables and green peppercorn sauce. It’s meant to be shared, but we won't tell if you finish it alone.
    Side Dish: Pyramid’s bar stocks a lovely selection of Texas wines, so try a Hill Country red with your red meat.
    The Damage: $95

    1717 N. Akard St.; 214-720-5249

  • Korean Family-Style BBQ at Shinsei

    Juicy Details: Roasted Berkshire pork is the centerpiece of this feast that also comes with mustard greens and Asian pear kimchi, steamed buns, lettuce cups, steamed veggies and barbecue sauce.
    Side Dish: The spicy flavors in the Ginger Limeade cocktail would hold up well to this meaty dish.

  • Beef Short Rib at 3 Stacks Smoke & Tap House

    How Big: Between 1 and 2 lbs.
    Juicy Details: This hunk of beef at the Frisco barbecue joint is sourced from Stockyards Omaha and takes a spin in Rib Whisperer Trace Arnold’s huge smoker.
    Side Dish: You can go light or luscious at 3 Stacks - pick the kale salad for a fresh touch or the decadent cheesy corn bake for a rich side.
    The Damage: $18 per lb.

    4226 Preston Rd.; 469-287-9035

  • Pork Chop at Asador

    How Big: 22 ozs.
    Juicy Details: The grass-fed cut of Hudspeth Farms pork arrives with root vegetables and pea tendrils.

    1807 Ross Ave.; 214-580-7000

  • Wagyu Longbone at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House

    How Big: 32 ozs.
    Juicy Details: The premium slab of Wagyu is served bone-in, and your server cuts it off the bone tableside. Luxe!

    The Damage: $89
