Going, going, gone to the Brekky Creek! The city pub with the country feel, the Breakfast Creek Hotel, has secured the highest bid at the 2014 Royal Brisbane (Ekka) Steer Auctions winning the “Grand Champion in the Prime” Steer on Wednesday August 6.
The Breakfast Creek Hotel is renowned for serving the very best steak in Brisbane and upholds this tradition with the award winning purchase, destined to be the feature cut at the Annual Charity Luncheon next month.
The successful bidding from Brekky Creek long term supplier Terry Nolan from Nolan’s Meats on behalf of the Hotel saw fierce competition and great pricing from the market, with $42 per kilo for the Champion Steer. The Limousin Cross Red Angus Steer nicknamed “Grizzles”, weighed in live at 384kg and was a great buy with a total $10,155 paid by the Hotel.
Grizzles was reared by 17 year-old Tyler Smith from Tamworth and bred by the Warden Brothers also from Tamworth. Grizzles was one of four steers hand picked by Tyler to show at the Ekka, she halter broke and prepared all the cattle by herself and even mixes her own feed ration.
Terry Nolan will process the steer at his Nolan’s Meats Gympie facility in conjunction with Ala Carte Meats in preparation for the September 23rd Charity Luncheon, held in the Spanish Garden Steakhouse at the Breakfast Creek Hotel. The luncheon is part of the ALH Group’s, “Hotel Cares” initiative supporting Prostate Cancer Research for the Mater and P.A Foundation and a key event for the fundraising calendar.
Geoff Atkinson from Ala Carte Meats picked up the MS Charity Steer at the Auctions and has also kindly donated the steer to the Annual luncheon. Ala carte Meats is a valued supplier of the Breakfast Creek Hotel, and his donation of the 548kg Red Angus Steer bid for $11.60 per Kilo ensures the event will certainly be one not to miss!
Hotel Manager, Sam Gullo states, “The Ekka auction is a great opportunity to purchase an award-winning steer, support a wonderful charity and uphold tradition during show week”.
The Breakfast Creek Hotel has a longstanding history of supporting the Royal Brisbane Show, dating back to the early 1990s when the Grand Champion Steer was brought back to the Hotel each year and paraded through the beer garden, even indulging in a Beer off the Wood on the way past. The Brekky Creek is dedicated to bidding competitively for many years to come in full support of the Ekka Auctions.
“We are a great supporter of prostate cancer research in Queensland and we look forward to hosting this charity event while showcasing some of the best beef in Queensland.”

Dry Aged Beef
Over 40 years ago most of our beef was dry aged, as this was the natural way to enhance the flavour and the tenderness of beef. The process of dry ageing begins with premium quality meat with a good fat cover and involves hanging the meat in sterile cold rooms with carefully controlled air flow, humidity and temperature for up to 9 weeks. During the ageing process, enzymes break down the muscle fibres, this improves tenderness, intensifies the flavour, resulting in the meat being positively buttery in texture and flavour. The flavour is best described as robust, rich, nutty and beefy.
1-15 days In the first 15 days the beef starts to form a crust on the outside which locks in the flavour.
16–30 days The ageing process is well under way with the enzymes breaking down the muscle fibres and the crust on the beef is now discoloured slightly.
31-45 days The outer crust of the beef is a lot dryer and distinctly more discoloured; at this stage of the process the inside of the meat is reaching its optimum flavour and tenderness.
46-60 days Flavour has intensified and the tenderness is maximised. The outer crust is then fully trimmed and cut into steaks ready for the customer to enjoy.
