This is the real deal. Authentic Wagyu. Japanese Wagyu. Wagyu bred, fed, grown and slaughtered in Japan. Perfectly cut ruby red flesh interlaced with white marbled fat. The A5 Wagyu, known in the meat business as the Rolls-Royce of beef.
Please specify at Checkout how you would like your meat cut, Eg. Thin at 100 grams, etc.
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.
Your meat will be delivered Cryovaced, which is a superior form of packaging that allows fresh goods to be kept fresher for longer.There are some effects of using Cryovac packaging, but we believe these few are outweighed by the advantages. Specifically, the meat will change to a darker red colour while in the packaging due to the lack of exposure to oxygen.
The meat will also sweat while in the packaging and this can result in an unpleasant smell when you first open the packaging ( this is not an indication of the freshness of the meat).
To overcome both of these effects all you need to do is when you’re ready to at your meat, simply remove it from the packaging and leave it out for 10-15 minutes. When out of the packaging and exposed to oxygen again the meat will slowly return to the usual red colour.
Once you have removed the meat, simply rinse out the bag and throw it in the bin and the smell will disappear too.
