When Hunger's at Steak ~ or Nothing Beats Beef

John loves to eat and this subsequently led to him teaching himself to cook. His eldest son is also a qualified chef and passes on tips.

The Challenge

In a recent article titled "An Ode to Cheese: With a Poem Challenge" Chris Mills (aka. cam8510) asked the following:

"This is not not so much my latest attempt at poetry as it is a challenge. I would like my friends to take a few minutes to produce a poem about food. Many of us are still shut up in our homes. Food has become a major issue. What will we eat? We search for new recipes...…….

Write a poem about food

Or I'll throw a fit.

Email me your poem when you post. Also leave a link here in the comments. Send samples of unspoilable food via your favorite delivery service."

When Hunger's at Steak ~ or Nothing Beats Beef

How I love a well-cooked steak,

Char-grilled, medium rare.

A fine rib fillet, T-bone, or rump,

No other meat compares.


Top it with green pepper sauce

And a glass of good red wine,

Nice company to share the meal,

And a pleasant place to dine.


There's nothing that I'd rather eat

Than the perfect grass-fed beef,

At home, or a restaurant

When the lockdown orders cease.
