When beef does pass inspection, it is stamped or labeled with the USDA inspection stamp, and that means it is fit to eat. The USDA’s inspection is all or nothing. There’s no halfway or partially-passed beef. Meat inspection is a very thorough process.
All of the meats are sealed and frozen.
Email is the best method for getting in touch with us, we can also be reached by phone 1-360-815-1494

Welcome to “Recipe and Tips”! Cooking Wagyu beef can be easy and incredibly delicious. To fully appreciate the rich and robust flavors of this premium beef, we suggest keeping things simple.
Our top recommendation is to season your Wagyu with just a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. It’s important to never overcook your Wagyu, so we advise cooking it to no more than medium-rare.
For more fantastic recipes and helpful tips, be sure to visit our page. Enjoy!

No, but this is a very common question. Although all Kobe is Wagyu, not all Wagyu is Kobe. Wagyu is the breed of cattle, which hails from Japan, and is famed for its dense marbling and flavor. Kobe beef comes from Wagyu cattle that meet very strict guidelines and are born, raised, and processed in Hyogo Prefecture of Japan, whose capital city is Kobe. Wagyu beef from the US could never be Kobe beef.
We don't want you to miss out on the exceptional quality of our wagyu beef. We will email you as soon as we have restock online.
