A renowned international steak competition has crowned an Irish fillet steak the best in the world.
The World Steak Challenge, which was held in Dublin for the first time on Wednesday, judged steaks from 25 countries around the world and from roughly 31 different breeds.
The ‘World’s Best Fillet Steak’ was made from grass-fed Angus that was cross reared in Limerick by Larry Goodman's ABP Cahir, and sold under Aldi’s specially selected own label.
Judges described it as a "picture-perfect fillet with all the flavour to back it up".
Last night was also an incredible night for ABP Cahir Ireland who secured 6 golds and Ireland’s first ever category win for Best Fillet. The grass fed Angus Cross is available through the @Aldi_Ireland's own label range. ABP Cahir also won 4 silver and 8 bronze medals ???? pic.twitter.com/LzHAz2crP0
