butcher cutting into block of wagyu steak

When you think of the perfect steak, what comes to mind? For many people, it’s a juicy, red piece of meat that’s cooked to perfection. Not all steaks are created equal, though. In fact, some steaks are downright amazing, and American Wagyu beef is one of them—Here’s why: 

The Art of American Wagyu

The Magic Is in the Marbling

Have you ever seen a piece of meat with streaks of fat running through it? That’s called marbling, and it’s one of the key indicators of a good steak. The more marbled a cut is, the more flavor it will have…and American Wagyu beef is some of the most marbled meat you’ll ever see.

This intense marbling makes each cut incredibly tender and juicy, with a flavor and aroma unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before!

The Formula Is Free From Stress

Although it is a myth that Wagyu cows must receive regular massages, one of the secrets to their amazing texture and flavor is this: They don’t get stressed out. When cattle live in an uncomfortable environment, they tense their muscles and produce tough meat. That is not the Wagyu way.

Cows are way tastier after living a life of contentment. Who wants to eat cortisol, anyway?

Why Is It So Scrumptious? Here’s the Science.

The Good Stuff Is in the Genes

American Wagyu beef is the result of years of research and development by some of the world’s leading cattle breeders. This research has led to the development of a superior breed of Wagyu cattle that is specifically designed for the American dinner plate. 

At Bear Lake Beef, we raise Wagyu cows from the state most famous for its beefy Angus flavor—South Dakota!

The Proof Is in the Melting Point

One of the things that make Wagyu beef so special is the melting point of its fat. The marbling in Wagyu beef is made up of monounsaturated fats, which have a lower melting point than other types of fat. When you cook Wagyu, its fat melts quickly, infusing the meat with flavor and making it incredibly tender. 

The melting point of American Wagyu Beef is actually below body temperature, meaning it will literally melt in your mouth!
