What is Wagyu…
Wagyu is a term that encapsulates the epitome of beef excellence. Hailing from Japan, Wagyu represents a breed of cattle renowned for its unparalleled quality and flavor. It embodies a culinary heritage rooted in meticulous rearing and feeding practices, resulting in a gastronomic delight like no other.
The hallmark of Wagyu lies in its mesmerizing marbling, where delicate streaks of fat interlace with the muscle, creating a succulent and buttery texture. The meat's rich, melt-in-your-mouth tenderness is a testament to the careful attention given to every aspect of its production.

Our Preferred Preparation for A5 Wagyu Striploin Steaks
We like to keep things simple and recommend you do the same when you cook A5 wagyu. Season your A5 Japanese wagyu striploin steak with salt and fresh cracked pepper before pan searing it on high heat, about 3-4 minutes each side. The idea is to achieve a nice, flavourful outer crust. This lets you appreciate the natural flavor of this delectable beef.
