The striploin is one of the most highly prized cuts of beef – typically sliced into strip steaks, which are considered to have an excellent balance of superior flavor and tenderness. Buying whole striploins instead of pre-cut steaks saves you money and allows you to cut exactly the style of strip steak you need. They can also be cooked whole or in sections as luxurious roasts.
Kobe beef (aka wagyu 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, wagyu striploin steaks & roasts are more flavorful and tender than those cut from conventional beef.
These whole striploins are available in a variety of different marbling grades. The higher the grade, the more extremely marbled the meat is, resulting in roasts and steaks that are more moist, tender and buttery.
Note: It may be possible to special order whole striploins with higher marbling grades. Contact us for more information.
