I have a huge portion of leftover chateaubriand from a top-notch steakhouse I went to last night and I'm trying to decide how to morph it into dinner tonight. I saw this thread
but nothing really stood out at me so I'm looking for other ideas. I don't really want to turn it into sandwiches but I will if the collective wisdom tells me that's the best way to go. Also, the meat is a little more rare than I'd prefer so is there a way I can cook it a bit more without ruining it?

My local supermarket's best steaks are hung for 21 days apparently, and are red and fresh. However, when I used some the other day, and put some uncooked leftover back in the fridge, it went brown and started rotting within a couple of days. How does the butcher manage to hang the meat for 21 days without the same thing happening?

I've committed to barbecuing an 11-pound bone-in prime rib
tonight. Should I cut it up into individual steaks or grill it as one giant roast? My grill is a hybrid gas and charcoal, if it matters. Any advice is helpful; I've never done anything this big. The diners' preference is for medium well and dinner will be in about seven hours.

I have two gorgeous bistro steaks
that I was hoping to cook tonight, but my fridge was temperamental this weekend and froze half of each steak solid (the other halves are a non-frozen, safe temperature). Is there any way of thawing the frozen halves out? Do I just cut the steaks in half? Feed me, Metafilter!

My girlfriend wants to celebrate a recent work success by taking us out to dinner. She's letting me pick the restaurant. Ideally, I'd like a really good steak, since I don't eat really good steak that often. However,
she doesn't really care for steak. What restaurant in Toronto serves both A) a variety of really great steaks and B) has a good selection of quality non-steak entrees on the menu? (She also wants to wear her brand new little black dress and be all pretty, so higher-end would be preferred.)

What are the differences, really, between different cuts of steak? Is it all just tenderness, or are there significant flavor differences? Assume a decade-plus of vegetarianism has left me fairly meat ignorant.

Planning to grill steaks tonight, I sent Mr. Artychoke to the grocery to buy rib eye steaks. He came home with a gigantor 5 pound ribeye roast, thinking that the package contained a bunch of really thick steaks stacked sideways in a meat tray, or something. We have no idea what to do with this. Do we have to cook it like a roast? (If so, okay, do you have a good recipe or should I go with the best looking recipe that comes up when I google.) Or, can we cut it into regular steaks and cook as usual?? [more inside]

Where should I take a friend out for steak in Portland? It needs to be in the downtown/Pearl/NW area. I'm looking for someplace not too expensive (under $150 for the two of us), not too stuffy or corporate feeling, and if they have a rib eye, that would be superb! Any recommendations?

CanIEatThisFilter: Just discovered a couple of pounds of steak that has been sitting in our fridge, in marinade, for about ten days (it was purchased a week ago Saturday). Looks like it never made it on the grill. If I cook it well is it safe to eat?

I am working on a label for a steak seasoning container. I have an ingredients list but need to have a qualified entity analyze and finalize it. Where can I find a service that can do that and give me other stats like calories, sodium content, total fat, etc.

Has anyone ever sent you really nice steaks in the mail? I have a coworker across the country I'd like to reward, and as he's on Adkins, my usual Belgian-brownie shipment isn't going to cut it. Any vendor recommendations based on experience?
