Dublin’s Fire Restaurant on Dawson Street will be serving the world’s best steak, as crowned at the 2018 World Steak Challenge, for a limited period in the run-up to the 2019 competition.
Selected as the winner up against 200 different steaks from 22 countries worldwide at the 2018 World Steak Challenge in London, the cut is a 10oz grass fed Ayrshire sirloin steak from Finland. The beef comes from the Ayrshire breed, which originated in Ayr in Scotland. The herd the steak comes from is born and raised in Finland by JN Meats.
What makes this cut stand out is the marbling, which competes with Wagyu and Kobe. There is only a limited quantity of cattle with the genetic potential for a very high grade of marbling and Fire has secured a limited stock of this steak for customers.
Fire will exclusively be serving the 10oz steak in Ireland from the 1st July on a first come first served basis due to limited availability. The steak will be cooked to the customer’s liking and served with marrow butter, a fennel and citrus salad, pont neuf chips and tobacco onions, for €48.
The World Steak Challenge is taking place in Fire Restaurant this coming July 9th and 10th. The competition is viewed as a platform to benchmark the quality of beef production against international competitors. The panel draws together beef producers, butchers, restaurateurs, food scientists and chefs from around the world to judge a record entry of over 300 steaks.
Executive Head Chef of Fire, Richie Wilson, said: “Working with best possible ingredients available to me is something I have always been very proud of, and to be working with what is considered the world’s best steak is an exciting prospect. I’m hoping other meat lovers across the country will take this opportunity to come in and try this cut of steak that is held in such high esteem by the panel of experts who crowned it the winner at last year’s World Steak Challenge event.”
