Wagyu Tomahawk MS5
1.2-1.8 kg per piece
Australian Wagyu Beef comes from the highly marbled, ultra-rich breed that made Japan famous. A savory steak with a smooth velvety texture and a taste that spreads throughout the mouth. It is a full tomahawk steak along the exposed bone, juicy, tender with buttery soft flavor. A gourmet treat for a great dining experience.
With the equivalent Japanese BMS scale of 5 (Australian Wagyu MS5 is the same as a Japanese Wagyu BMS5).
Grade : MS5
Australia is one of the biggest producers of Wagyu Beef in the world. It uses its own grading scale, the AUS-MEAT marbling system. This scale goes from 0 (no marbling) to 9+ (extraordinary amounts of marbling), the latter one being the highest grade. The Australian Wagyu grading scores are identical to the Japanese BMS scale, meaning an Australian Wagyu BMS 5 is the same as a Japanese Wagyu BMS 5. However, the Australian scale tops out at grade 9, and everything above it (scores 10, 11, and 12), are graded 9+.
Wagyu beef is rich in monounsaturated fat, around 300% more than normal beef thanks to its marbling. It is also a good source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids (comparable to olive oil or salmon).
Among the meats, wagyu beef also has the lowest cholesterol levels and it provides oleic acid, considered to be heart-healthy. Studies shown that it also has anti-carcinogenic properties.
