Four professional Meat Cutters from Texas Roadhouse’s Metro Manila stores will compete in the first round of the qualifier International Meat Cutter Challenge on December 7 at the restaurant’s McKinley Hill branch. 

They are out to prove that they’re a cut above the rest.

About the Competition

Each participant will receive 30-40 pounds of beef, consisting of sirloin, NY Striploin and
Ribeye to cut. Meat Cutters will be judged on quality, yield, and speed in this timed cut-off. The
