The A5 grading is a Japanese system – the A meaning the carcass yield is the highest possible and the numeric rating relating to beef marbling, colour and brightness of the flesh, its texture and colour, lustre and fat quality.

A5 is the highest mark Wagyu can score. In Japan, A5 beef is so highly regarded it is given as corporate gifts, for special occasions, sold only in exclusive department stores and eaten by middle-class Japanese perhaps once every few years.

Quality A5 Wagyu for that special occasion

A5 Wagyu is often described as “the best beef in the world”. This is due to the unbelievable melt-in-the-mouth flavours and outstanding succulence. This cattle is raised devotedly and lives in a stress-free environment with a nutrient-packed diet. This is what many regard as the reason for its incredible intramuscular marbled fat.

Many people talk of how beef is better to cook rare; however, with Wagyu, we recommend cooking for slightly longer than you may typically choose to. Medium-rare or possibly even medium. This is because our A5 Wagyu has amazing intramuscular fat and extra cooking allows it to caramelise and become beautifully crisp. Once rested, even after cooking for slightly longer, your steak will still be perfectly tender and release the delectable flavour that hides within.


How should I cook my A5 Wagyu?

There are different ways to cook your Wagyu; however, we like to pan-fry and slice. Start by removing your A5 Wagyu steak from the fridge 30 minutes before you cook. This will bring your beef up to room temperature. Season with rock salt and cracked black pepper and heat your pan. Place your steak flat into the pan and fry for a few minutes. Afterwards, turn your steak over and fry it for the same amount of time. Baste your Wagyu in its own juices whilst it cooks. Once cooking is completed, remove your Wagyu steak from the pan and rest for a few minutes. Remove the skirt and then carefully slice it into delicious strips of premium goodness.
