This is one of the rarest steaks in the USA. Until recently, no bone in product was ever allowed into the US from Japan. We are one of the few butchers shops if, not the first, to carry it.
This particular Cowboy comes from the prefecture of Kagoshima, which is also highly rated for its quality. While at Meat N' Bone we usually work with Miyazaki-Gyu we could not pass the opportunity for some bone-in product.
This product is available in limited quantities. This first batch was a test for us in terms of yield, we hope to be able to lower the price in the future.
A5 beef is measured on five factors: (1) marbling, (2) meat color and brightness, (3) firmness and texture of meat, and (4) color, luster and quality of fat.
In the quality grade, the lowest score from the four items of the yield grade is adopted. In other words, even if grade 5 was given to marbling, color and brightness, and firmness and texture, and only fat assessments was grade 4, the quality grade of this beef is classified as grade 4. Quality grading is severely done.
A5 means this beef excels in every single factor.It has a gorgeous webbing of fat that will make you feel a creamy mouth-feel in each bite. Its literally like tasting a cloud... a cloud of beef.
Like all of our steaks, they come vacuum sealed and have been hand-cut by our expert butchers.
