DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: A5 is the highest grade of Japanese Wagyu beef. Pair this fact with ribeye and you get a firm yet tender, and heavily marbled—gorgeous, rich, and juicy. Because it is the best, it is the only grade we will sell. Award-winning and top-scoring from the Miyazaki Prefecture, it is superior even to Kobe beef. Pasture-raised for 16-18 months; cattle are then grain-fed for over 450 days. This prized Wagyu beef is hormone-free, antibiotic-free, and non-GMO.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT: The boneless ribeye is also known as a standing rib roast, and prime rib. The Miyazaki Prefecture is situated on the island of Kyushu, where the climate is optimum for year-round production.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: As a single steak, sear quickly using high heat. As a roast loin, this beautiful cut of beef can be sliced in thicknesses of your preference prior to cooking, or roast whole for a most succulent prime rib. Because of the rich fat marbling, grilling A5 Wagyu is not recommended unless using indirect heat.
