What is Wagyu Beef?
Wagyu is arguably the best and most expensive beef money can buy. With its exceptional marbling, superior tenderness and exquisite flavor, it’s no wonder Wagyu is the pinnacle of the beef world… With its proven health benefits, choosing Wagyu isn’t just a treat for your taste buds, it’s great for your heart as well. ~ Wagyu Beef Association
A Healthier Choice
When compared to Angus Beef, Wagyu Beef contains more protein per pound. Even more interesting, the high levels of Oleic Acid (commonly known as Omega-9) are on par with that of Chicken and Salmon. Oleic Acid has been found to raise HDL Cholesterol levels in our bloodstream, which are the good cholesterol molecules that then carry the health destroying LDL Cholesterol out of the bloodstream. See the study here.
Healthy Cows Make Healthy Beef
A happy cow, makes a tasty cow, and our herdsmen admit, some cows do become as close as pets. Our team works hard to be hands on with the herd and to ensure each cow lives it's best, low stress life.
To help manage the herd we complete a DNA profile on each cow that helps us promote good breeding, and healthy stock.
Wagyu is best cooked thin in a hot cast iron pan. You don’t need oil, just use a bit of kosher salt. As soon as the salt starts to turn brown it is ready for your steak. A couple minutes on each side in a hot pan (not a smoking burning pan, just a hot pan) you’ll have a crusty flavor explosion full of trapped in fatty juices. You’ll feel like you have lip balm on your lips for 1-2 hours after, it is so good!”
