Wagyu Burgers

Oostema Wagyu

When it comes to burgers, there’s beef, and then there’s Wagyu.

Wagyu beef originates from Japan and is considered by many the best beef on the planet. With the name meaning “Japanese Cow” (wa = Japanese, gyu = cow), it can be found in four different types of Japanese cattle.

But what is it about Wagyu that makes it the most sought-after beef in the world?

Wagyu is different from other types of beef. Wagyu beef is distinctive because it is highly marbled.

Marbling refers to the visible layers of intramuscular fat. This is fat that is found in the muscle. Due to the unique genetics of the cows, the meat contains a higher percentage of fatty acids than ordinary beef, giving it a higher marbling score.

The higher the marbling score, the more flavorsome, tender, and juicy the meat is – 100% Wagyu cattle have the highest marble levels of any beef in the world.

So, why would you have an ordinary burger when you could have a Wagyu beef burger instead?

Yes, you read that right. Wagyu beef is high in fat, and it’s actually a good thing.

Wagyu beef contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and more monounsaturated fats than other beef. This soft fat has a low melting point and not only creates the wonderful texture of Wagyu beef but also holds most of the flavor.

Thanks to the marbled texture and high percentage of fat, Wagyu beef is moist, tender, and mouth-wateringly flavorsome.

Nobody wants a sweat-inducing chew-fest when they’re chowing down on a great burger. You want to sail effortlessly through the experience and savor the rich and buttery taste of the meat with every mouthful. That’s why a Wagyu beef burger will always be superior to the regular old beef patty.
