Japanese a5 Wagyu Ribeye Steak 300g
Japanese Wagyu a5 Ribeye Steak
Wagyu beef is synonymous with a really, really good steak. But there’s wagyu and then there’s Japanese wagyu!
The title “Ito Wagyu” is given only to the very best black wagyu beef of at least grade 4, which has undergone rigorous care from fattening to processing, then has been handpicked by seasoned connoisseurs. Ito wagyu is rated the 'best in the world' and has only been allowed to be exported from Japan in the last few years. Australia breeds very good wagyu, but Ito wagyu is a very specialised, high-quality product.”
All a5 wagyu beef comes from the Kuroge Washu breed, specifically the Tajima strain raised in Hyogo prefecture. Just like champagne has to be made from the Champagne region of France, real Kobe beef can only come from Kobe in Japan. The taste, texture and quality are the product of the local soil, climate and conditions.
Usage: This 300g Ribeye steak is cut from fresh in the UK with the idea of offering the option to serve two people. Wagyu is very rich so you do not need a huge amount. Each steak is cut the entire way across the rib joint and is at least 1cm thick.
Japanese wagyu steak is best when cooked medium-rare to 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.
Origin: Hyogo Prefecture, Japan
Net Weight: 300g+
