Australian Wagyu Finds Widespread Popularity in the United States

SAN DIEGO, California – Surveys have found that there are both competitive advantages (as far as cost and production), and a clear flavor preference for Australian Wagyu steak over a steak of Japanese A5 Wagyu beef.


Research conducted by modern butcher shop The Meatery showed that customers who have tried both Japanese A5 Wagyu and Australian Wagyu beef preferred the Australian Wagyu steak over the classic Japanese wagyu. Lucky for their customers, The Meatery has both options available for purchase in stores and online.


While Japanese A5 Wagyu offers an unique and incredibly decadent experience, 80% of the popular butcher shop’s customers prefer the Australian Wagyu beef, showing an inclination for the “steakier” flavor, over its counterparts. While Australian Wagyu has three times the marbling of a USDA Prime steak, it typically has a lower BMS (Beef Marble Score) than Japanese Wagyu. Markedly more flavorful, Australian Wagyu steak boasts a much more balanced, savory, and beefy palate than Japanese Wagyu steak.

Differences from Classic Japanese Wagyu

The high marbling of Australian Wagyu boasts an impressive texture while not being as rich, sweet, or soft as Japanese Wagyu. The grading process is also fairly extensive: Wagyu with a yield of 72% or more is given a grade of “A”, a yield between 69-72% is given a grade of “B”, and anything below 69% receives a “C” grade. The next notable difference is that Wagyu beef is given a numbered score from 1 to 5 assigned to the flavor/texture. Inferior firmness and texture are given a score of 1 while Wagyu offering excellent firmness and texture are given a score of 5. Together, these offer the true grade of the beef. The Meatery is proud to be one of the only butchers certified to produce and sell A5 Wagyu beef.


Taste the Difference Yourself at The Meatery

All varieties of Wagyu are world-renowned for their distinct and impressive flavor. While there are key differences between Australian and Japanese A5 Wagyu, one common quality shared among them all is the assessment done by the Kobe Beef Association. The Kobe Beef Association provides a quality check on its wagyu steak cuts to ensure its excellent value. Recently, The Meatery, after only two years in the industry, has found itself certified by this association.


Whether you prefer the meaty, savory flavors of Australian Wagyu beef or the rich sweetness of Japanese Wagyu beef, The Meatery offers the best quality products at the most reasonable prices to offer the best Wagyu beef in San Diego
