What's better than Stanley Cup Playoff hockey? Stanley Cup Playoff hockey with a Texas-sized slab of meat.

Ezekiel Elliott downed a massive bone-in steak while cheering on the Dallas Stars against the St. Louis Blues in Game 3 of the Western Conference Second Round on Tuesday.

Elliott, known for his feed-me celebration after successful runs, appeared to have a tough time with the meat's temperature. But good for him for upgrading his food of choice. Elliott got mouthfuls of popcorn from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in the Western Conference First Round to the enormous slab of beef.

The Cowboys running back was back at American Airlines Center, sitting on the glass while supporting the Stars for the third straight game, but he wasn't the only Dallas sports icon rooting on the Stars. Longtime Dallas Mavericks forward, and former NBA Finals MVP, Dirk Nowitzki was at the game as well.

No word on what Dirk was eating.
