Don’t call it comeback. Australian beef producer Jack’s Creek have, for the third year in a row, dominated London’s coveted World Steak Challenge, walking away with the title of World’s Best Fillet Steak. Bringing home one of the competition’s top awards, this has solidified Jack’s Creek as a serious force despite being a relative newcomer on the scene, besting 17 countries and over 100 entries to emerge in the first place.
Their winning steak, a Wagyu F2+ 450-day grain fed fillet, made quite the impression on the panel of judges, the chair of whom explained: “we focused on how the steaks taste, taking into account their tenderness. Those that got it right jumped out at you. The steaks were definitely high this year, it’s interesting for us with the different categories as different cuts have different qualities so we had to take that into account”.
In addition to the crown, Jack’s Creek also picked up a gold medal for their Wagyu F2+ 450day grain fed striploin and a silver for their Wagyu F2+ 450-day grain fed rib eye. Many of these can currently be found on the menus of Australia’s top restaurants, including ARIA, BLACK Bar & Grill, Catalina, LuMi Bar and Dining, and more.
“I am delighted with the outcome this year,” said manager director of Jack’s Creek Patrick Warmoll. “A third consecutive set of gold and silver medals, as well as the World’s Best Fillet Steak award confirms that we are producing a consistent, high quality product and I am very proud of the business we have created. As I always say, this is as much a win for Australia as it is for us”.
