Introducing 300g (10.6 oz) of ethically raised and locally sourced pure Japanese Wagyu beef short rib slices from Iwate prefecture. These slices are very popular in Japan and are a must-have in every high-end Yaki Niku restaurant. They impress with their rich flavor, excellent marbling and meat that just melts in your mouth as you chew it. You can either enjoy them Yaki Niku style, as a healthy steak salad or in steak bowls. We recommend cooking these slices to medium rare for optimal tenderness, juiciness, and flavor. Simply sprinkle with high-quality sea salt.
These short rib 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.
