Japanese Wagyu Beef Fillet, A5, Fresh +/-4.5kg
Fillet is the most prized cut of beef and it doesn’t get better than genuine Japanese wagyu fillet. Densely marbled steaks melt in the mouth when seasoned and seared briefly in a hot pan. This whole wagyu beef fillet comes from the Gunma prefecture of Japan. The temperate climate means the black cattle graze on a rich diet and the beef from this region is known for its tenderness and rich, buttery flavour.
The richness of Japanese wagyu means a little goes a long way as it’s very rich. It is a very special meat and, until recently, was unavailable in the UK. The cattle are reared according to strict regulations and the resulting meat is unlike any other in the world. The intense marbling of fat dissolves into the meat as it cooks, giving it flavour and lending to its melt-in-the-mouth texture.
Origin: Gunma Prefecture, Japan
