    We have steak but not as authentic and or well-prepared as the ones in America.
    We have steak, but it's not as authentic and or well-prepared as the ones in America.

    I'm wondering how steak can be less authentic than that in America.

    My thoughts exactly. Maybe he means that it is not the same quality of meat.

    Then authentic is the wrong word.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I'm wondering how "they're" or "it's" can be left out when it isn't there in the first place.
    An authentic question might be, 'Has "they're" been left out here?' or 'Can "they're" have been left out here?'

    Re: Can this be said: We have steak but not as authentic and well prepared as the on

    Hello everybody, I want to clarify these points:

    1. So, they're or it's can be left out. And can they're be included in the sentence?

    2. Are you saying and should be replaced with or? And - and is incorrect.

    3. I just got 'authentic' from Authentic Philly Cheese Steak.

    4. What about this sentence:

    We have Shabu Shabu(restaurants) but they're not as authentic and festive as the ones in Japan.

    Can restaurants be left out?

    An authentic Philly Cheese Steak is much different from an authentic steak.

    A cheese steak is a type of sandwich, which Philadelphia is famous for.

    Authenticity in making this product, using the correct ingredients, etc. can be a marketing issue.

    Thank you everyone, but what about:

    1. So, they're or it's can be left out. And can they're be included in the sentence?

    2. Are you saying and should be replaced with or? And - and is incorrect.

    3. I just got 'authentic' from Authentic Philly Cheese Steak.

    4. What about this sentence:

    Can restaurants be left out?
