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".

15 Irish businesses were given a total of 75 medals at the ceremony at Fire restaurant in Dublin, while the competition was judged by a panel of 40 that comprised of a mix of industry experts and consumers.

Meanwhile, the coveted title of 'World’s Best Steak' went to a Finnish grass-fed ribeye produced by JN Meat International for the second year in a row.
