Miyazaki Japanese A5 Wagyu Strip Steak
“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 A5 Wagyu boneless strip steak—sourced from the short loin of top-tier Japanese Black (Kuroge Washu) steers—is 14oz of epic flavor. Individual 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.
Pro tip: Japanese beef connoisseurs begin their assessment with three benchmark flavor components and expand from there:
- Amasa (甘さ / sweetness)
- Kaori (香り / fragrance)
- Yawarasaka (柔らかさ / tenderness)

:: IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO ::
Our master butchers perfectly age, cut, and immediately vacuum seal our steaks before blast freezing them to -30F. This method completely protects and preserves the quality of the steaks for transit. To help ensure your steak delivery arrives in excellent condition, each order is shipped frozen in a state-of-the-art shipping unit with dry ice. The outer shipper is recyclable and the interior insulation, made from corn starch, is biodegradable and can be dissolved in your sink (make sure to rinse it thoroughly so it doesn't stick in the p-trap).
An ice- or cold-water bath is recommended for a quick thaw but the best way is to allow your steaks to defrost in your refrigerator 24-48 hours. Never defrost steaks in warm or hot water.
