Ensuring Freshness and Quality

It’s important to pay attention to the expiry date printed on the packaging of your Wagyu beef. If you plan on storing your meat in the fridge, be sure to cook it before the listed date. Alternatively, if you’re not cooking your Wagyu beef right away, we recommend purchasing frozen Wagyu beef or promptly storing it in your freezer upon bringing it home. By doing so, you can preserve the quality, flavors, and freshness of the beef for up to 12 months. For optimal taste, consume frozen Wagyu steaks within 4 months.

Why Choose Wagyu Over Commercial Beef?

The journey of exploring different types of beef is a personal one, and at Hook’d Up Bar and Grill, we believe in providing you with the absolute best. While unbranded lean meat found in supermarkets and butcher’s shops boasts minimal marbling, commercial cattle may also be raised in less-ideal farming conditions and may receive artificial hormones. In contrast, our Wagyu beef offers an unmatched taste and a buttery texture, thanks to its intense marbling. Additionally, Wagyu cattle are raised under high ethical standards, living longer lives than their commercial counterparts. They are not injected with growth hormones or antibiotics, and their diet consists of carefully selected grains. The result? Superior meat that will leave you craving more.

Malaysian Wagyu: A Taste of Authenticity

You may be wondering if there are Wagyu cows in Malaysia and whether Wagyu beef can be produced locally. The answer is no. Wagyu cows possess unique genetics and are raised in controlled environments with specialized feed. While farm conditions and feed can be replicated elsewhere, the distinct genotype of Wagyu cattle, responsible for their renowned marbling, cannot be imitated. Rest assured, the Wagyu cows that produce the meat we import are exclusively raised in Japan or Australia, ensuring an authentic experience.

Decoding the Grades: A Journey into Wagyu Quality

Understanding the quality of Wagyu beef can be perplexing. Ratings are based on marbling score and provide valuable insights into the tenderness, flavor, and richness of the meat. In Australia, the Marbling Score (MS) is used, while Japan employs the Beef Marbling Score (BMS). The higher the rating, the more marbling the meat possesses, resulting in a tender, buttery, and flavorful eating experience. Although the ratings are interchangeable, it’s worth noting that Australian Wagyu beef achieves a maximum marbling score of 9, while Japanese Wagyu beef goes beyond to an impressive BMS 12. An A5 grade represents the pinnacle of Wagyu beef, combining a meat-to-carcass weight ratio of 72% or more with a 5/5 rating across various categories, including Beef Marbling Score, Beef Colour Standard, Beef Fat Standard, Firmness & Texture.

Australian vs. Japanese Wagyu: Unveiling the Differences

While Australian Wagyu cattle can trace their roots back to Japan, factors such as climate, environments, feed, and rearing methods contribute to variations in taste and texture. Australian Wagyu beef boasts a maximum marbling score of 9, a testament to its exceptional quality. On the other hand, the hallowed grounds of Japan remain the sole producers of A5-grade Wagyu beef, surpassing marbling scores of 8 to 12.
