Japanese Wagyu a5 Sirloin
Japanese Wagyu A5 - BMS 8-12 (Exceptional)
Japenese Wagyu Beef is rated the 'best in the world' and is raised by hand in a respectful and devoted manner, it is then hand-picked by seasoned connoisseurs who grade the quality from the cross-section of the sixth and seventh rib. The criteria of quality include brightness, firmness and dryness of the meat, the visual quality of the marbling, and the shape of the whole carcass.
All A5 Wagyu Beef comes from the Kuroge Washu breed. Those cattle are raised in a friendly environment on pasture and with a hand-massage to increase blood circulation and relieve stress.

Usage: We recommend that Japanese Wagyu is cooked a little longer than normal - medium-rare or even medium. This allows the intramuscular fat to caramelise and become crisp which once rested still allows the steak to be perfectly tender while realising the true flavour of the Wagyu. Steaks are not the only way to enjoy Wagyu. Traditional preparation methods include sukiyaki and shabu-shabu, one-pot dishes that render out more of the fat than grilling.
Sukiyaki simmers thinly sliced beef in a pot with vegetables, usually bathed in a sauce made with soy sauce, sugar and sake. A raw egg is served with the dish, used for dipping the beef after it's extracted from the broth.
Shabu-shabu is a light and healthy meal made with strips of meat even thinner than those used for sukiyaki. The beef strips are briefly cooked in a simmering kombu kelp broth.
Note: This a5 sirloin is sold from fresh in its original imported state. Light trimming is required to suit your preference.
