All orders are hand-cut fresh to order, so we recommend that you cook and consume, or freeze, your meat within five days of receiving it. Most proteins can be kept frozen for up to a year.

We source much of our meat locally, however we do source some of the best products that other countries have to offer.

Wagyu is simply any of the original breeds of Japanese cattle. Meat cut from these animals is known for its intense marbling, high quality, and rich flavor. Kobe beef is a very particular strain of Wagyu called Tajima-Gyu that is raised to strict standards in the Hyogo Prefecture. Kobe is the capital city of Hyogo, thus the name.

We recommend that you prepare or freeze your Butcher Shoppe order within five days of receiving it. Most meat will hold in a deep freeze for up to a year. For best practices around meat handling, see Safe food handling in the home from Canada.ca.

Absolutely. Most of our cuts of meat can be prepared in a large pan, preferably a cast-iron skillet, on high heat. The trick is to season meat appropriately and use the right temperature to achieve that nice crusty sear on the outside. Some of our product pages include recommendations on preparation, including instructions for preparing meat on the stove.
