Wagyu beef (aka “Kobe” beef) is from a breed of cow specially raised to increase its percentage of fat marbling to consistently high levels. More marbling leads to more flavor, tenderness, and moisture as the fat melts during the cooking process. Thus, ground wagyu beef is more flavorful and moist than conventional beef.
Grass-fed wagyu beef is almost unheard of in the beef market. Hapani Wagyu Beef is free range (pasture raised) and 100% grass-fed/finished. No hormones or antibiotics are ever used to promote growth. Despite being raised without grain, it is still exquisitely marbled and produces fantastic ground beef.
Use this ground beef to make truly luxurious meals. Its higher fat content will help ensure formed items like burgers, meatloaf & meatballs stay together and stay moist.
Not only is free range grass fed beef more humane, it’s better for you too. 100% grass fed beef is lower in saturated fat as well as higher in valuable nutrients like vitamins A & E, conjugated linoleic acid (aka CLA), and omega-3 fatty acids.
