  • Purebred F4 (75% or more A5 genetics)
  • Halal Certified

Don’t underestimate the cows from down under! Australian Wagyu is bred using Japanese Wagyu genetics, allowing for a tender piece of steak and a mouth watering steakhouse experience.

One topic that always stands the test of time… and that is.. what is better, the Ribeye or the NY Strip? This is a personal preference, but we do enjoy the NY Strip a tad better due to its consistency. However when it comes to wagyu, something about the marbling just hits differently.. you decide! (Here at Ligma, the Gold NY Strip is a favorite!)

Located directly behind the rib section, our New York Strips are cut from the short loin. The Strip steak also known as “New York Strip” are known for its balance of marbling and tenderness. Each of our strips are packed full of flavor and require very little seasoning if any to bring out the taste of Wagyu. Just salt would work!

With a marble score of 8-9, our Gold Label Wagyu represents the highest score Australian Wagyu available, to simply put - the best. This level of marbling is comparable to that of Japanese A5, this will absolutely melt in your mouth but with a bit more meaty texture. With limited availability, our Gold Label Wagyu is highly sought after for its rich marbling and juicy texture delivering a unique and luxurious dining experience every time. If you are seeking something exclusive, this is it!

On top of being Gold Label, this product is also a Purebred Wagyu Product. Traditionally most crossbred wagyu are a 50/50 mix of Angus and Japanese Black Cow. However this product is 75% or more of Japanese genetics due to cross breeding resulting in distinct traits visible in the marbling itself.

How are you packing my product?

Our products are professionally butchered and individually vacuumed sealed in a USDA facility and blast frozen to maintain freshness and allow for consistent quality. We ship using insulated foam containers with ice packs or dry ice - it leaves our facility cold and arrives the same way! Some natural thawing may occur, do NOT panic!

How to: Receiving your shipment

Once ready to consume, please allow your steak(s) to thaw naturally in your refrigerator up to 8-12 hours. Do NOT soak in hot water. If you are short on time, you may leave this to thaw on your kitchen counter - perform at your own risk. (Japanese Wagyu contains a high fat content and will defrost much faster than any other cut of meat). Our steaks are vacuum sealed for freshness, they will last in your freezer for up to 12 months… but honestly, who lets Wagyu sit in their freezer for that long anyway? If you do not on plan on eating the steaks right away, leave them in the freezer until ready.
