Prime or Wagyu?
I ordered two tri-tips. One was this USDA Prime being reviewed, and the other was the Wagyu. The Wagyu cost twice as much. Was it worth it?
Well, I put it to the test. I dry brined them both overnight, rubbed them the same, cooked them the same, rested them the same.... and they both came out cooked perfectly.
Then the moment of truth:
I will say that the Wagyu was indeed better, but it wasn't twice as good by a long shot. The Prime was outstanding, but you got slightly more fatty mouth feel from the Wagyu. Both were tender, both were beefy, both were delicious.
Maybe splurge for the Wagyu for a special occasion or if you have money to burn, but the Prime was right there with it.
