Soon, the Las Vegas lights will bounce off shiny snap shirt buttons and equally lustrous belt buckles as cowboy culture takes over Sin City for National Finals Rodeo. As these starched-shirt, tight-jeaned, 10-gallon hat-wearing thrill seekers descend upon Las Vegas for days and nights filled with bull riding, calf roping and line dancing, they’ll be bringing their carnivorous appetites with them.

It’s safe to say that rodeo folk love steakhouses. Here are some of our favorite steakhouses and steakhouse dishes. Cowboys, do this meal right and you just might be able to stay on top of that bull for eight seconds. Or you might pass out at the dinner table. Either way, it’s a win.

Start with a classic. Old Homestead Steakhouse Las Vegas, headed by brothers Mark and Greg Cherry, is one of those New York steakhouses of culinary lore. And while some cowpokes might dislike things typically associated with New York City – like the Yankees – that should not extend to steak.

The Las Vegas branch of this New York stalwart, located inside Caesars Palace, has that same swank vibe of the Gotham location. Whether out for a night on the town, a power business meeting or a break from the rodeo, this is a place to get an iconic piece of meat. The Gotham Ribeye features 24 ounces of luscious beef still on the bone for added flavor. When you’re talking steak, this is about as good as it gets.

Gordon Ramsay Steak Paris Las Vegas is an upscale steak house famous for its beef Wellington

As the Gordon Ramsay Las Vegas empire continues to grow, a must-visit restaurant is his Paris Las Vegas outpost that specializes in high-end dining with an emphasis on meat. Among the choices are Japanese A-5 and American Wagyu. Those are both fine selections, but anyone who hasn’t tried Ramsay’s cuisine before should start with the roasted beef Wellington. It’s one of his signature dishes that has been featured all over television and magazines.

The origin of the dish may be disputed, but it has become distinctly British with Ramsay’s version among the most famous in the world. A thick filet of beef is cooked properly then slathered in English mustard. Mushroom duxelle and Parma ham are wrapped around the filet. That is all blanketed by an egg-washed puff pastry and baked. It’s a luxurious dish with a superstar preparation.

In the “everything old is new again” category, check out the Chateaubriand for two at this steakhouse at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Chateaubriand is having a resurgence at steak joints. While it has always been a fine cut of meat from the filet area, portion controllers made it seem out of fashion for a while. But these hefty hunks of bovine are back in style. Prepared with mushrooms and a vintage white-wine demi-glace, it’s a shared plate worth sharing.

Now that we’re sharing, let’s get another big slab of meat for two. The 36-ounce porterhouse at this famous restaurant in Bally’s Las Vegas will satisfy most any couple. Pretend the “T” shape of the cut stands for team since you’ll be enjoying this as a unit. While there is a still a dispute over the first place to serve this cut, at least we can all enjoy all that tenderloin goodness together.

The California-meets-Italian cuisine queen might be best known for her fresh takes on pasta and lighter fare, but there are some serious options for meat-eaters at her namesake eatery at The Cromwell. A 7-ounce filet mignon is flavorful on its own but here it is enhanced with salmoriglio, a southern Italian blend of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. The sides of morel mushrooms, white asparagus and a potato cake take this plate over the top with tastiness.

If it is opulence that is the prime directive of your meaty quest, look no further. Le filet de boeuf Rossini, also known as Rossini-style filet mignon, aka Tournedos Rossini, is a French preparation supposedly created for the composer Gioachino Rossini. It is still argued over which of the French master chefs created the dish, but no matter, it’s still around for all to enjoy.

Beef tournedos (filet mignon) are pan-fried then placed on top of heated bread. An extravagant slice of foie gras is then pan-fried and rested on top of the beef. Black truffles are shaved over the entire plate, which is traditionally finished with a Madiera demi-glace, but here is finished with a truffle sauce. As Rossini himself must have heard many times – bravo!

Finishing up this meat-filled maze, move over to the steak joint at the Flamingo Las Vegas and mix it up a little. Prime rib is dry aged and slow-roasted. It’s served in 10-ounce and 16-ounce portions. This versatile piece of the cow is usually served medium rare but for those looking to get wild, get a few grill marks on it.

Now cowboy up and get your steak on.
