Oklahoma meat cutter heading to Texas Roadhouse butcher challenge


Silvano Vicente of Oklahoma City, a meat cutter at Texas Roadhouse, is one of 25 qualifying butchers in the regional round of the company's National Meat Cutting Challenge.

An Oklahoma City butcher is carving his way through a one-of-a-kind competition as he inches one slice closer to the final round of the National Meat Cutting Challenge presented by Texas Roadhouse.

Silvano Vicente earned a qualifying top spot here in Oklahoma in October and will now move on to the regional competition at Children’s Health Star Center in Farmers Branch, Texas, at 11 a.m. Jan. 18.

Twenty-five competitors will vie for the top five spots to move on to the final competition and a chance at winning the $25,000 grand prize.  

Vicente and his fellow competitors are the meat-cutters responsible for every steak served at their local Texas Roadhouse locations. In an average year, they cut about $1 million worth of meat and spend seven to eight hours a day cutting meat in the 35F walk-in cooler.

Silvano Vicente of Oklahoma City, a meat cutter at Texas Roadhouse, is one of 25 qualifying butchers in the regional round of the company's National Meat Cutting Challenge.

For the competition, each participant receives 30-40 pounds of beef consisting of one sirloin, ribeye and filet. The contestants are judged on quality, yield, and speed and the cutter who yields the most steaks, with the highest quality cut in the least amount of time, taking top prize. To assure the best, freshest quality meat, all cutting is done at a chilly 38 F.
