Why Wagyu?

What in the world is American Wagyu?

American Wagyu beef is some of the best in the world—but what makes it stand out? After specialty breeders in Japan successfully reared a species of cattle with unparalleled marbling, the succulent steaks it produced started to spread their wings. Wagyu was incorporated into countless dishes in the surrounding countries, but when the sensation reached the States, we had an even better idea.

The Proof is in the Melting Point

The mind-blowing mouthfeel of Wagyu steak comes down to science. High-fat content in every cut with a melting point below body temperature means Wagyu will literally melt in your mouth.

Whereas typical beef fat melts at a minimum of 104°F, Wagyu fat melts at a maximum of 77°F. The average human body sits at around 98.6°F, so American Wagyu beef acts like butter on the tongue.

Mind-Blowing Marbling Meets Famous American Flavor

American beef aficionados found that Wagyu had one flaw. While it worked very well in Asian dishes, its flavor wasn’t fit for the US dinner table. How could our citizens truly relish in buttery Wagyu without the famous flavor and bite of Angus beef? After a bit of brainstorming, we had a breakthrough.

US farmers crossbred Angus and Wagyu cattle, and the species that came forth showcased the melt-in-your-mouth marbling of Wagyu and the treasured traditional flavor of American steak at the same time.
