HERE'S a challenge to really get your teeth in to.

Starting tonight, the Coronation Hotel at West Ipswich is introducing a one kilogram steak challenge at its restaurant The Other Supper Club.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to finish eating a monster 1kg slab of premium meat cooked to your specifications - plus the sides - within 20 minutes.

The Coro's operations manager Bridget McLean, who described the steak as "bloody thick", said it was a joint idea from her and the pub's caterer/chef Nathan Bargmann.

"We have themes for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and we had a few thoughts that Saturday nights in Ipswich are a bit kind of quiet so we wanted to bring something fun to keep people in Ipswich," Bridget said.

"Everyone loves a challenge - people are always competing in everything they do - and we thought we'd bring a bit of theatre to it as well.

"We're going to have the girls dressed up in theme as well in referee shirts with whistles and we're going to have allocated tables and give everyone updates about how people are going with the challenge.

"We want to have everyone, even if they're not in here to do the challenge, to have a look and see what's going on, to get a bit of chat happening, something a bit fun.

"We're also going to have an honour board where you get your name up there when you've completed it.

"So there's that natural instinct for other people of, 'I can beat them'."

Nathan, who said that, as with all the produce he cooks, the steak is locally-sourced, predicted 10 per cent of people would achieve the chewing challenge.

"It'll be a $40 challenge and the steak comes with chips," Nathan said.

"People will have 20 minutes to devour a one kilo steak and sides. If they accomplish the challenge within 20 minutes, they get a $20 voucher to come back and spend at the restaurant."

Nathan and Bridget said they were also looking at having a special prize at the end of the month for the person who completed the challenge the quickest.
