Japanese Wagyu Beef Fillet, A5, BMS 10-12, Fresh, +/-4kg
The fillet is one of the most prized cuts 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 Kagoshima 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. It is a very special meat and, until 2015, 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: Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan
