Introduction to Japanese Wagyu
What is Wagyu? What makes it so premium and exquisite?
Above all, what makes it so good?
Japanese Wagyu, literally ‘Japanese cattle’, is the national treasure of Japan and recognised as the finest beef in the world.
Japanese Wagyu is of unrivalled quality when it comes to marbling, colour and umami. This is the result of pure pedigree lineage that took years of research and breeding, as well as carefully designed diet and unrevealed rearing techniques.
Marbling, or densely concentrated intramuscular fats, is the most prominent characteristic of Wagyu. This marbling is termed ‘Shimofuri’ in Japanese and means ‘snowfall’ when loosely translated, a word that beautifully captures the fine and evenly distributed fats throughout the muscle fibres.
Beef in Japan is graded based on yield grade and meat quality. The yield grade refers to the ratio of meat to the total weight of the carcass. Yield grade is classified into three grades from A to C, with A being the grade of highest yield. Quality is classified into five grades (1 - 5) based on marbling, colour and brightness of meat and fat, as well as firmness and texture of the meat.
Combining both, the best level of wagyu beef will achieve a grading of A5 (having both grade A and quality level 5). This thorough grading system ensures clear indication of Wagyu meat quality and yield grade.
Why Kurobuta isn’t your ordinary pork
Japanese pigs are bred to good health in comfortable, clean breeding environments amidst abundant, natural landscapes over the seasons. The porcine equivalent of Kobe beef, Japanese Kurobuta is the most highly prized pork in Japan and also widely regarded as the highest quality pork in the world.
Kurobuta, literally translated as Black Pigs, are of an ancient Black Berkshire breed and were imported into Japan approximately 400 years ago. Over the years, Japanese farmers in Kagoshima prefecture developed their own methods and special feed to produce the modern Kurobuta Pork that is high in intramuscular fats and fragrant flavour.
With high intramuscular fats and fine marbling, Kagoshima Kurobuta pork is rich in amino acid and widely prized for their flavourful and tender texture.
They are popularly used for shabu shabu (thinly sliced pork), Tonkatsu (deep fried breaded pork cutlet) or deliciously marinated teriyaki pork chops.
