These chuck slices are locally sourced from pure Japanese wagyu cows raised on a small farm in Iwate Prefecture. Among the four existing Wagyu beef breeds, this beef is from the Shorthorn variety. Compared to the "Japanese Black" breed beef, this is leaner and richer in amino acids, which contributes to its deeper umami flavor.
Not your typical wagyu. The cows are humanely raised and treated with respect - they always have plenty of room to roam throughout their entire lives. No growth-promoting hormones, no subtherapeutic antibiotics, and no GMO feed. If you're looking for clean, premium, wagyu beef, look no further.
