Learn about how we label beef and Beef Grading Standards
The Prime Rib primal cut is where we find the most tender, flavorful and desirable steaks in a steer/cow. In layman's words, the Prime Rib is where the flavor is at. The Prime Rib is the undisputed KING of large cuts of beef.
This particular Prime Rib 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. Note that Kagoshima is an amazing quality, as they won the e 2017 "Wagyu Olympics"
This product is available in limited quantities as Bone-In Japanese Wagyu is extremely rare in the US.
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.
