Indulge in the delicious flavors of Purebred Australian Wagyu beef from The Wagyu Shop. This exclusive type of beef shares many characteristics with authentic Japanese Wagyu, such as a tender texture and intricate marbling, but it has some of its own distinctive qualities that make it especially exciting to indulge in. Discover one of the most unique and sought-after types of meat from the other side of the world with this selection of Australian Wagyu beef.
Raised in Australia
Australian Wagyu cattle have bloodlines that can be traced back to Japanese Wagyu cattle. These Purebred Australian Wagyu have at least 93.75% pure Japanese Wagyu cattle genetics. The special grain feed is sourced locally in Australia, and a shorter feeding time produces cattle which are generally smaller in size compared to Japanese Wagyu. While Australian Wagyu beef shares some key similarities with Japanese Wagyu, including exquisite tenderness and marbling, there are some distinctive features that make Australian Wagyu unique. Notably, Australian Wagyu is slightly less buttery in flavor compared to Japanese Wagyu, giving it a slightly leaner, meatier taste.
Premium Quality Steaks
Two systems are used to grade Australian Wagyu beef: AUS-MEAT (which is very similar to the BMS system used to grade Japanese Wagyu) and Meat Standards Australia (MSA). Grading scores are assigned based on a number of factors, including meat color, fat depth and marbling quality. At The Wagyu Shop, every Australian Wagyu steak comes from the very finest sources and is graded with an AUS-MEAT score of 8 to 9 and MSA score of 1000 to 1100+, both of which are the equivalent to the top A5 grade applicable for Japanese Wagyu.
