Watch Pat LaFrieda Revolutionize the Meat Industry

Tune in to Meat Men on Thursdays at 10:30pm ET to watch Pat LaFrieda build a meat empire.
By: Cooking Channel

Pat LaFrieda, Jr., the "Magician of Meat," runs a third-generation wholesale meat purveyor business in New Jersey with his cranky dad, Pat Sr., and his smooth-talking cousin, Mark Pastore. They've built the company into a meat empire, but the high-"steaks" business has plenty of pitfalls.

Tune in to Meat Men tonight (and every Thursday) at 10:30pm ET on Cooking Channel to watch how Pat and his family handle everything from last-minute requests and creating burger blends and menus for new clients to dealing with difficult customers and navigating the personalities of a 500-person work staff.

On tonight's episode, Pat is gunning for the business of The Prime Rib, one of the most famous steakhouses in Washington, D.C., but he only one shot to impress the "godfather of steak" Buzz Beler.
