2010 Pepperjack ‘Battle of the Steaks’


Category : ,

Want to win a trip to Buenos Aires?
Then pay attention!

Are you the kind of person who boasts about knowing where the greatest steak is served? Well, now is the time to put your money where your mouth is and help your favourite steak venue be crowned Pepperjack’s National Steak Champion.

Head down to your local participating restaurant, club or pub from 1 August 2010, and put their steak and reputation to the test. If you think their steak lives up to the standard of being the best in Australia, you can simply vote via SMS.

By voting for your favourite steak venue, you will not only be helping their chances in taking out the prestigious title of Pepperjack’s National Steak Champion, but also go in the running to win an incredible trip for two to the steak capital of the world, Buenos Aires, Argentina, valued at over $10,000. High stakes for Australia’s best steak!

The overall top restaurant club and pub nationally at the conclusion of the voting period will each receive a $20,000 prize and go head-to-head in a final national cook-off, to be judged by a panel of experts, led by celebrity chef and steak expert, Adrian Richardson of La Luna restaurant in Carlton, Melbourne, Boys Weekend TV show and the famous cookbook MEAT. The winner will be crowned Pepperjack’s National Steak Champion.

“The great thing about Pepperjack Battle of the Steaks is that Australia will vote for three top venues whether it be an RSL, local pub, or a high-end steak restaurant – everyone who dishes up a quality steak is in with a fighting chance to take out the top prize,” commented Richardson.

“Think about the following when judging your steak: the age of the beef, the feed, the flavour, the cut, and, of course, what the meat is served with. If these venues can serve up a great meal time after time, they are in for a chance to win this mighty beef battle,” Richardson added.

The competition for 2010 is already heating up with top venues across Australia already signed up to battle it out for the title of Pepperjack’s National Steak Champion, including The Malvern Hotel (Vic), Enzo’s Risortante (SA), Daniel’s Steakhouse (NSW), Port Office Hotel (QLD) and Incontro (WA).

Log on to www.battleofthesteaks.com.au from 1 August to see if your local restaurant, club or pub has registered and to track the leader board throughout the competition. Voting closes 30 September.

Also, don’t forget to ask your favourite venue if they serve Pepperjack red wines. Like sauce is to steak, Pepperjack wines from the Barossa Valley are also a great accompaniment to your favourite red meat meal.

2008 Pepperjack Shiraz – RRP $26.99
2008 Pepperjack Cabernet Sauvignon – RRP $26.99

Don’t miss out on staking your claim in the naming Pepperjack’s National Steak Champion.

Thanks to Louise from Liquid Ideas for providing the media release and bottle of Pepperjack wine to enjoy with my steak.
