Rockefeller Center Ice Rink Turns into a ‘Meat and Greet Area” for the National Meatcutting Challenge

Yesterday, the National Meatcutting Competition was held at the Rockefeller Center Iceskating Rink. Jose "Ozkar" Ayora-Miranda, who works at Tyler's Texas Roadhouse placed first in the challenge, taking home a $20,000 prize. Steaks are judged on quality, yield and speed. They have to cut the fastest and waste the least. At yesterday's finals, Mr. Ayora-Miranda cut 50 pounds of beef — two top-butts, two tenderloins and one rib loin — against six other "prime contestants" from Alabama, California, Indiana, Michigan, Rhode Island and Wisconsin.
