Japan's most favorite yaki niku dish - the "gyu tan", sliced beef tongue. The slices are 10mm (25/64") thick cuts. For best results use only little sea salt and/or lemon juice - we know it is hard to resist the endless variety of yakiniku sauces but Morgan Ranch beef is full of rich and buttery flavor and we always recommend not to cover up the taste for best results and experience.
Certified American Purebred Wagyu from the Morgan Ranch is America's finest gourmet beef. Award-winning for taste, tenderness, and sustainability. Free of hormones, antibiotics, and steroids. Free-range pasture-raised with love and care by the Morgans in the heart of Nebraska. Preferred by first-class steak houses and several Michelin starred establishments worldwide. All ranch images are real images from the family ranch.
