Why we love Wagyu beef
So, what exactly is Wagyu beef? There is some misinformation and confusion around the definition of Wagyu and where Wagyu beef comes from. The term ‘Wagyu’ directly translates as ‘Japanese cow’, of which there are a few different breeds. However, when you think of Wagyu beef, you probably imagine the beautifully marbled beef that has become famous across the world.
Wagyu beef gets its irresistible marbling from the way fat is deposited on the inside of the muscles. This means the meat is soft, which is what gives high-grade Wagyu steak that juicy and tender texture.
It’s important to note that in Japan, Wagyu beef is graded with a different system to the one we have here in Australia. The highest marble grading is A5 in Japan. In Australia, we use a numbered system from 0 (no marbling) to 9+ (perfect marbling).
Wagyu beef in Australia
You may have noticed that there are Wagyu beef cattle farms in Australia and elsewhere in the world, not just in Japan. You get a very similar cut of beef to the world-class Wagyu beef that is available in Japan. So while anything labelled as Wagyu beef may not necessarily come from Japan, local Australian Wagyu beef products also offer you a high-quality cut of meat that you’re sure to love — just with a much more affordable price tag attached.
