If you’re into steaks, you know what it feels like to look forward to a good one. The anticipation. The excitement. The satisfaction of slicing the first piece and putting it into your mouth. The feeling at the end that in that moment, life is good.

So, what makes a good steak? Is it the taste? The texture? How the fat is marbled around the muscle to give it the right juiciness and flavor? The meaty aroma when it’s hot off the grill? All of the above. And the list goes on.

Most of us who are passionate (to varying degrees) about steak can probably have a rich and flavorful conversation about what makes a good steak. But the question is, what makes a perfect steak?

Our most recent achievement in the lab

But first, we are proud to report our most recent achievement in MeaTech. Our scientists have successfully accelerated and enhanced the formation of real living bovine muscle fibers to improve their density, thickness, and length. This process is what will ultimately make our cultured steaks indistinguishable from slaughtered meat in terms of look, feel, texture, and taste.

These images illustrate what our latest achievement looks like under a microscope:

From our initial breakthrough last December, when we 3D printed the world’s largest steak ever produced in a lab, to this latest achievement, we’re getting closer to our goal of creating a steak that will equal, and even improve, what we can currently find at meat counters and restaurants. 

MeaTech’s 3.67 oz bio-printed cultivated steak.

You can have your steak and eat it too

Now, back to the perfect steak, as opposed to just a good one. The choice begins long before your steak ends up at the meat counter or on a menu at your favorite restaurant. We want to be able to enjoy a good steak, but we don’t like the consequences: climate change, deforestation, the slaughtering of animals, an increase in zoonic infectious diseases, etc.

This is only the beginning. We are on the path to the perfect steak: a tender, delicious and juicy cut of real premium meat. In short, the perfect steak.

    All I can say is HOORAY for the animals! I quit meat about 30 years ago because of the barbaric practices. Not because I didn’t love steaks and the rest, but because I knew it wasn’t right. The smell of a steak on a grill can still make me salivate, but knowing how it got there – it just isn’t worth it for me. This news is a game changer – I won’t go back to being a carnivore, but for the millions of them out there, and for the millions of animals whose first glimpse of sunlight is the ride to the slaughterhouse, I praise science!!

    I think this is a great idea. It sounds like cloning our food source without hurting the animals. You could potentially end world hunger with this. Next do chicken and pork. Of course the cattleman and chicken and pig farmers will all go broke. The amount of unemployment will put us in another bubble of inflation that none of the middle class and poor can afford. I dont know what the answer is . Still think this could end hunger around the world.

    Is it free of antibiotics, chemicals, pesticides, etc.? Is it prohibitively expensive to produce? Can you differentiate club steaks, filet mignon, strip, chuck, etc?

    If this is true it is a great accomplishment for all animals, as well as humans.

    Finally, an cruelty-free idea that has been needed for years. When can we see the product on the market? Just the thought of animals being spared their horrible fate gives me real happiness. Thank you.

    Eating meat without the merciless killing of animals would make Living Our Lives guilt free, and that would ease depression as well as anxiety. It would make the whole planet a better place and help us to find the humanity of which humans are truly capable. That alone could pave the way to Man being good to Man as well. No more starvation, perhaps no more need to wage wars. This is more than steaks; it’s a whole new way of life for the world. I see a Nobel peace prize in your future. Thank you.

    Absolutely, the world is moving faster every day! In the world of the “too many people in the world, this would be a wonderful world, created by some scientists and investd in by, million and billion dollar, investors! The public would not know what they are really eating. I’m not saying they would do it, but is a thought!!!

    As a vegetarian for strictly ethical reason this technology is awesome👌
    Knowing I could one day have a good dish like beef stroganoff or philly cheese steak or chuck wagon with gravy sounds great!

    All without participating in slaughtering animals I’m really excited for the future of this technology! plus you could engineer the meat to be very lean and super healthy for athletically conscious individuals.
