No need to travel overseas, the best steak in the world is right here.
It’s official, Australia has some serious chops when it comes to steak.
Our fair country picked up four gold medals and the title for the World’s Best Steak in the first ever World Steak Challenge, held recently in London’s Hyde Park.
The competition judged 70 steaks from 10 different countries including England, United States, Canada and Japan. Of these, 17 producers qualified to be Silver standard quality medal winners.There were 11 gold medal-winning steaks, with Australia claiming four medals; more than any other country.
The day pitched producer against producer, breed against breed, and country against country with the mission of us being able to present to you the 2015 World Steak Challenge Gold and Silver steak medallist winners and of course, the overall champion of ‘World Steak Challenge – World’s Best Steak Producer 2015 ‘
The steaks were taken through a two stage judging process,which involved a panel of expert judges and a panel of consumer judges. During the second round those that made it through were judged again in order for the judges to find the first ever overall winner of the World Steak Challenge – World’s Best Steak Producer.
The top prize was awarded to 450-day-old grain fed Wagyu cross-bred cattle from Jack’s Creek at Willow Tree, NSW. The Jack’s Creek steak, which is exported to more than 20 countries, was entered by German meat importer Albers GMBH.
Establishing our dominance over the rest of the steak world, Australia also picked up gold medals for a Black Angus by Jan Zandbergen, Wagyu cross by the Australian Agricultural Company, and Angus by Rangers Valley Cattle Station.
