120-pound Sacramento woman sets record by eating 3 72-ounce steaks

A small-framed Sacramento woman has a full belly and plenty to celebrate after successfully eating three 72-ounce steaks in 20 minutes.

Not only did Molly Schuyler, a competitive eater, finish the famous cuts of meat from the Big Texan restaurant in Amarillo, Texas, on Sunday, she wiped the plates clean and ate the sides too.

That's three 4 1/2-pound steaks, three baked potatoes, three shrimp cocktails, three salads and three bread rolls.

Here's how fast she consumed the steak meals: The first one was eaten in 4 minutes and 18 seconds;  the second was finished at the 11-minute, 47-second mark; and the third was completed at the 20-minute mark.

She attempted to eat a fourth steak, but it proved to be too much.

Dubbed the "72oz Showdown," Schuyler's feat broke a record at the Texas restaurant, known for its massive steaks.

The effort earned her a prize of $6,000, according to the Amarillo Globe-News. Schuyler's achievement will be presented to the Guinness World Records.

The 120-pound mother of four has participated in more than 70 food competitions nationwide.

Schuyler slashed her previously set record at the restaurant in May when she ate two 72-ounce steak meals.

The restaurant is famous for its 72-ounce steak challenge. Those who complete the challenge within an hour get to eat for free.
