Upper Prime Black Angus - Not all Prime is created equal. Up until a decade ago, only 1-2% of all cattle harvested in the US qualified as Prime. However, in the last decade the USDA Prime category has recently grown to about 6% of harvested cattle, the vast majority of which are "lower" Prime, what the USDA defines as "slightly abundant" marbling.
Holy Grail's Upper Prime Black Angus is hand-selected by our producer partner to be in the upper part of the marbling spectrum. These are the most tender, succulent, and juicy Black Angus steaks you can get. With only about 1,000 head available each year, these steaks are highly coveted by top steakhouses. You won't find them at your local grocery store or butcher. Simply put, our partner is the best and most consistent Black Angus cattle producer in the country with the purest genetics around.
