Australia Comes Out On Top In World's Best Steak Challenge 2023

Australia has clinched the title of World's Best Steak at the recent annual World's Best Steak Challenge 2023, with producer Jack's Creek winning thanks to its grain-fed wagyu black angus cross sirloin.

In winning the overall title, Jack's Creek's cut was also named the World's Best Sirloin and World's Best Grain Fed Steak as well as Oceanian's Best Steak. Jack's Creek cattle are bred and raised on the natural pastures that surround Willow Tree in central New South Wales. They are then finished on a blend of grains, hay and silage.

The World's Best Wagyu and also Asia's Best Steak went to Itoham Yonekyu Holdings for its A5 Wagyu sirloin from the Japanese Black (Kuroge Washu) breed of cattle, while The World's Best Rib-Eye was awarded to Alliance Group for its 55-day aged ribeye, with the company also taking the title of World's Best Grass-fed Steak.

The World's Best Fillet Steak and Europe's Best Steak was a 28-day aged Norland Heifer fillet from a German Rotbunte and Charolais/Limousin breed from Danish Crown

South America's Best Steak was a rib-eye from Azul Natural Beef with Creekstone Farms' Ribeye wet-aged rib-eye steak from a Black Angus breed being named North America's Best Steak.

Australia's Jack's Creek is no stranger to the awards. Last year it was the winner in the Rib-eye category and was the winner of the 2021 Best Fillet, Best Rib-Eye and Grain-Fed categories.

"This year's competition saw the highest standard of entries yet, with a record number of gold entries, but one particular steak stood out from the pack. Congratulations to Jack's Creek for its outstanding steak and to all the winners in the other categories," says Restaurant editor and World Steak Challenge judge Stefan Chomka.

"The global nature of this competition and the high quality of entrants demonstrates a true desire across the world to produce some top quality cuts of steak that are testament to the hard work that goes into beef production."
