Australia has won the first World Steak Challenge, beating 70 other steaks from 10 different countries.
The competition, which took place in London’s Hyde Park, saw steaks being judged as both cooked and uncooked beef.
The winner was from 450-day-old grain fed Wagyu cross-bred cattle by Jack’s Creek at Willow Tree, NSW, which exports to more than 20 countries.
It was entered by German meat importer and wholesaler Albers GMBH from Dusseldorf.
“It has been quite a journey and is the culmination of 15 years seeking steak perfection,” said Frank Albers of Albers GMBH, according to Global Meat News.
“The steak we entered was quite unique. Our Wagyu contains just the right amount of marbling and it very heat resistant which helps when cooking.”
Australia also picked another four gold medals for a Black Angus by Jan Zandbergen, Wagyu cross by the Australian Agricultural Company, as well as the Angus by Rangers Valley Cattle Station.
