Din­ers all or­der the beef

The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

THIS week’s Dar­ling Downs Beef Bat­tle served as a great show­case of the best beef on the Dar­ling Downs.

And there were 150 peo­ple for­tu­nate enough to score a seat at the ta­ble.

Hosted by Food Lead­ers Aus­tralia, the event was held at the Spot­ted Cow in Toowoomba.

At­ten­dees tasted beef from lo­cal beef brands JBS, John Dee, Mort and Co, Oakey Beef Ex­ports, Rangers Val­ley and Stan­broke.

The beef was all sir­loin and all cooked the same way.

Each ta­ble gave each plate of beef a score out of 10 based on beef flavour, flavour in­ten­sity, mouth feel, ten­der­ness and juici­ness.

Oakey Beef Ex­ports claimed the ti­tle by a slim 2.5 points, tak­ing home the tro­phy.
