Judging Integrity

The World Steak Challenge prides itself on offering an independent, robust and fair judging process from start to finish. Integrity is at the heart of everything we do. Every steak is judged on its own merits against the internationally agreed judging criteria.

Stage One – Technical judging

All steaks are scored blindly on raw and cooked criteria by our expert panel of judges.

Stage Two – Scoring

All scores are totalled and the winners are verified by our judging panel.


The judging is independent and monitored at every stage. Every steak is judged on its own merits against the internationally agreed judging criteria.


All steaks have the chance to win a gold, silver or bronze medal. The top-scoring steak will receive the coveted award of The World's Best Steak.
