There is a place in Maple Grove that the locals love to eat at. It’s a place where you can kick back and get a good meal while relaxing in a laid back atmosphere. The name of the place is Pittsburg Blue. It might remind you of a way to cook a steak and you would be correct. Ordering a steak Pittsburg Blue means charring it black on the outside so quick that it leaves the inside still nearly raw. IT was a classic way of cooking a steak and today has faded away as people no longer like raw meet and hardly any steakhouses offer their steaks cooked this way. The style of cooking came around during the industrial revolution after a long day at the stele mill workers would want a steak and they would be too tired to wait for the steak to cook all the way through. So they would char the outside and not wait for it to cook through. Today Pittsburgh Blue serves up the best steaks, chops, and seafood. They will cook it any way you want even the best Pittsburgh Blue you could ask for. The restaurant is open for Brunch, lunch, and dinner. The steaks are all hand cut and aged to give a great rich flavor however you want it cooked.
