Learn about how we label beef and Beef Grading Standards
Miyazakigyu Wagyu is the #1 Wagyu brand in Japan and supply stateside is quite limited. This steaks are usually sold for $35-$50 per oz at top steakhouses.
We are portioning these Ribeye Steaks in Manhattan style, which makes it great go cook them medium or medium-rare.. just like a very high end steakhouse. The portions are enough for one person and relatively affordable.
A5 Miyazaky 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.
Best Cooked: Medium-Rare, Medium, Medium-Well
The strip is cut from the short loin, from a muscle that does little work, like the filet.
