“Miyazakigyu,” the highest quality designation from the Miyazaki Prefecture, is the ultimate luxury in beef. Every five years, The Japanese Wagyu Olympics ranks the most pampered cows on Earth. Miyazakigyu is a consecutive two-time Champion (2007, 2012) and a three-time consecutive winner (2007, 2012, & 2017) of the Prime Minister award—the category for best flavor.
Our Miyazaki A5 Wagyu ribeye—sourced from rib six through twelve of the rib primal—is 14oz of bovine Valhalla. Cuts are ¾-inch thick traditional in Japanese steak houses.
Like Kobe, Miyazakigyu must be graded A4 or above with a BMS of seven or higher. Miyazaki is one of four prefectures on Kyushu, a subtropical island near the southern tip of Japan. Wagyu from Miyazaki is famous for its cherry-red coloring and density of marbling.
Raised for 30 months by ranchers with a special zeal for husbandry, Kyushu steers feed on wheat, rice, corn, and barley. This wholesome diet promotes “shimofuri,” the highest quality of fat marbling. The end result is a steak with such complexity, richness, and depth of flavor, even the most jaded Wagyu aficionados will pause with reverence.
