Find out the finalists for England’s Most Innovative Steak

EBLEX’s search to find ‘England’s Best Innovative Steak 2015’ is nearly over as six competition finalists are revealed.

The finish line is now in sight for the finalists, with three awards up for grabs.

A winner will be declared in the ‘Innovative Butchery’ and ‘Added Value’ categories and one of those will then be crowned the competition’s ‘Overall Winner’.

Following the first round of judging, entries into the competition were whittled down to the top three innovative steaks in each of the two categories:

‘Innovative Butchery’ Finalists:

• Althams Butchers in Morecambe, Lancashire with ‘Lamb Neck Fillet Steak’
• Aubrey Allen of Leamington Spa, Warwickshire with ‘1 Bone Sirloin Noisette’
• Wm Morrison Supermarkets with ‘British Beef Denver Steak’

‘Added Value’ Finalists:

• Aubrey Allen of Leamington Spa, Warwickshire with ‘Sirloin Pave with Café de Paris’
• Owen Taylor & Sons of Alfreton, Derbyshire with ‘Denver Fire Steak’
• Penshaw Farm Butchers in Tyne & Wear with ‘Spicy Sirloin Sizzler’

EBLEX foodservice project manager, Hugh Judd, said: “We were delighted with the innovation and quality of the steak entries we received in this competition. The range of products entered showed that there is plenty of appetite for steak product development out there.

“We introduced the Innovative Steak competition this year as we were particularly interested to see cuts taken from the forequarter and other underutilised parts of the carcase, as well as more traditional cuts being presented in unique ways – both of which have the potential to enhance value for the sector and generate enthusiasm among steak lovers.”

The final will take place at the inaugural EBLEX Quality Standard Mark Excellence Awards on 22nd April at the Underglobe, London. The 2015 awards is formed of three competitions: ‘England’s Best Innovative Steak, ‘England’s Best Sirloin Steak’ and ‘England’s Best Steak Pie’.
