Imported into the US on custom-outfitted 737's in the early 1990's, American Wagyu Akaushi Beef comes from the Japanese Red, a distinct and rare breed of Japanese Wagyu from the southern island of Kyushu.
Landing smack-dab in the middle of the marbling spectrum, Akaushi perfectly blends the intensity of Prime Angus with the succulence of Wagyu. With its lush, beefy flavor and "fork-tender", melt-in-your-mouth disposition, Akaushi will be for many of you The Holy Grail of Steak. If you love Prime Angus, you've got to try American Wagyu Akaushi Beef. Great on the grill or seared in cast-iron.
