Where to go for the best steak in Warsaw?

Poles rarely eat steak, the beef you buy in supermarkets is really, really tough. They certainly won't eat yak either.

Well there ya go then.
Ship a couple of Black Angus from Texas to Poland and breed them.
Raise the best grass fed tender beef of all of Poland.
Our logo would be, "Ya'll can't beat johnny's reb's meat."

really tough

Yes, but Polish cuisine has developed tasty ways of using beef such as bitki w śmietanie and zrazy wołowe zawijane -- both melt-in-your-mouth tender!.

Maybe when you were here that was true; but these days even Lidl and Biedronka sell 21-day aged steaks that are excellent. It's unfortunate that some people only go to Biedronka to bulk buy cans of 1.49zl rotgut "VIP" lager.

Agree. Personally I much prefer the tough cuts of beef braised or cooked over minimal heat for a few hours, rather than a steak. Beef cooked in it's own juices with no added stock is delicious or you can simmer it in a bottle of cheap red wine for a really delicious rich sauce. Oxtail soup is another favourite dish of mine. Any beef dish cooked on the bone will be full of flavour. The one thing I miss beef wise in Poland is a traditional roast, as the animal seems to be butchered differently and you can't get a proper roasting joint.

Very hard to get tails in Poland. Occasionally a distant in-law who works in a butcher's gets one for me, which I put it in my slow cooker for several hours. Poles think I'm nuts to eat a cow's tail, but oxtail stew is delicious. Perfect rib-sticking winter food.

Lidl have roasting beef from time to time, but blink and you'll miss it. Their Irish steaks are pretty good, too.

johnny, you might find a decent steak in the big cities, I had one good steak in warsaw about 5 years ago

I never recommend the steak to american visitors, all a bit different here, might be feed type corn etc, use of steroids? (not sure) time left to hang new york striploin etc.

In my opinion steaks in europe are not as good as in the us.

maybe with the exception of some argentine steak house and those who import beef from abroad.

And what's wrong with the 1.49 zł rotgut "VIP" lager?

Have you smelt it? One sniff will tell you all you need to know about it.
I'd suggest that you take a sample sip but not even you deserve that fate.

you might find a decent steak in the big cities

Absolutely excellent steak can be found in Warsaw. Perfectly acceptable steak can be found in any Lidl or Biedronka. Or one can have very good steak delivered to one's door by a number of companies. I do wish you'd stop judging Poland based on solely your frankly limited experiences of it.

Harry " Perfectly acceptable steak can be found in any Lidl or Biedronka" you need to travel more. I eat it sometimes because there is no other quality option.

I eat it sometimes because there is no other quality option.

It's not high quality, but it's perfectly acceptable for a mid-week home-cooked steak, especially at that price point.
You're completely wrong about there being no quality option, as can be seen at this page en.befsztyk.pl/fresh-aged-beef-meat.html
And yes they do deliver to that corner of Polska A you mistake for Polska B.
If nothing at that page takes your fancy, contact these people and ask if they'll deliver to you (they almost certainly will but I don't know what the cost would be like) steakclub.pl

Even if one travels more, they may still do their shopping in the shops of the kind of Biedronka or Lidl.

And yes they do deliver to that corner of Polska A you mistake for Polska B.

There is no such thing as Polska A or Polska B. There is only "InPolska".

Can ye no see that Dolno is one of the good laddies, clearly very polite

Yes, he certainly is, which is why when provided with links showing he's talking utter bollocks about Poland not being able to offer him a quality steak, he responds with wild claims about me being a racist.

there was no need for the Polska A or Poska B comment in the context of steak quality unless you intended to offend a Polish person.

I'm getting quite tired with your 'Woe is me, I live in Polska B where there's no chance of getting an IPA or a decent steak' rubbish.

Why don't you just tell me where i can buy it without being demeaning.

I did. Right here: polishforums.com/off-topic/random-chat-74400/359/#msg1524209 Even recommended some beers for you if you think that Poland doesn't have any IPAs.

But the tone your last post does prove that you are a bully.

You get called out on posting utter bollocks about beer and beef and how you can't get decent of either in Poland and you choose to reply by throwing about accusations of racism, but instead of being called a pointless individual of questionable parentage and told to jog on you are merely requested to mend your ways, and you promptly whine about the tone used when speaking to you. Apparently you could be more pathetic.

Harry I see you took your time and have now come back with a back pedaling post.

Lets get the IPA and steak thing sorted, no I have not seen IPA on the shelves where i live, i did see and ad for lidl british week but when i got there there wasn't any.

And as to steak I did say i had some good steak in Warsaw.

And yes you did put me straight about the IPA but look at what you wrote.

" really do sometimes wonder which country you are living in. There's IPA all over the place in Poland."

A tad demeaning and unnecessary in the context of a discussion about beer do you not think

As for Polska A and Polska B

Another poster on this forum picked you up on the use of this term as follows.

Ziemowit "There is no such thing as Polska A or Polska B. There is only "InPolska".

And again your last post was nasty and aggressive.

Harry to add,

I never said that I could not find decent beer in Poland (Steak is another matter) I drink polish beer all the time, I think you are trying to twist what I say to make out that I am not a happy bunny in Poland, well I can assure you that I am happy to be living back in my homeland, eating my polish food and going to my church.

As for your final paragraph in your last post.

" but instead of being called a pointless individual of questionable parentage and told to jog on you are merely requested to mend your ways"

Yes you are implying just that I am of questionable parentage, no need for you to attempt to be cleaver with your words why don't you just say it.

In answer I knew both my parents, the came from a place called Brodzy Pod Kamien they were both polish so were their fathers and mothers.

Yawn. Perhaps you'd care to read the part of my post which went "but instead of being called..."? Or do you prefer to argue with what I don't say than to address what I do say? I wonder why you might want to do that.

I never said that I could not find decent beer in Poland

You said that you can't buy IPA here, a statement which is what is technically referred to as 'utter bollocks'. There is not an address in Poland (other than perhaps prison cells) which cannot buy excellent IPA. Kindly refrain from spouting such ignorance about Poland.

Steak is another matter

Another yawn. There's utterly excellent steak in Poland, but some people are sadly apparently incapable of following internet links.

I knew both my parents, the came from a place called Brodzy Pod Kamien they were both polish so were their fathers and mothers.

So why not try acting like it?

Poles think I'm nuts to eat a cow's tail, but oxtail stew is delicious.

Buddy you are not nuts as it is a delicacy in my book.
It's a bit greasy, however like you stated, in a slow cooker it cooks that fat out.
You now have a very flavorful meat in a stew after you skim the grease of the top.
You can make a lot of stew with a small amount of ox/cow tail.
Pour the stew over some rice and you can feed a lot of kids.
Something that sticks to your ribs on a cold day.
Oxtail in the U.S.A. cost about $9 per pound which is not cheap for something that is half bone.
Very popular in Jamaica too along with cow hoofs.
The meat in cows feet (half the price of tail) is very sweet also.
We call these kinds of meals "poor people's food". Yummy !
So we are back to leasing a 1000 acres of government land from Poland and raising prime beef.
So Harry, how much per pound does a nice Delmonico steak cost in a butcher shop in Poland ?
Do Poles buy say a quarter beef to put in their freezer from a farmer like we do here in the U.S. ?

We have a new contender - the Fiorentina steak in San Lorenzo (the new branch on zurawia). It's 80 zloty but you don't need any starter or desert ! Best I have had for a long time.
