Given its exquisite marbling this grade will have a very tender and juicy flavor particularly in the middle cuts from the loin or the rib.

FLAVOR

Although not technically a US grade the A5 Wagyu offers the most unique flavor out of our selection here at Wild Fork. Sourced exclusively from the Miyazaki region in Japan, the A5 at Wild Fork has a beautiful marbling that allows for a more uniform and deeper flavor making it a one-of-a-kind stand-alone type of beef.

TEXTURE

A5 Wagyu has the highest level or marbling out of all the beef grade selections. The fat/marbling in this line has a lower melting point, leading it to literally melt in your mouth as you enjoy the unique umami flavors.

COOKING APPLICATION

Wagyu is best done on a cast iron skillet or pan. Don’t let it sit there too long. As the fat melts, the beef will cook in it’s own fat/marbling juices.
