Fine Meats For A Gastronomic Indulgence
Japan is well-known for producing some of the best-quality meats in the world. This festive season, let the joy of melt-in-your-mouth Japanese beef and pork fill your stomach and heart!
Here are 3 brands of meat that have made the top cut and will please the most finicky gastronome.
Miyazaki Beef (宮崎牛 : Miyazakigyu)
Miyazaki Beef is the top quality beef brand in Japan and it only comes from Japanese Black cattle produced and fattened in Miyazaki Prefecture. Although its name is not that well-recognised among consumers globally, this three-time “Wagyu Olympics” champion is aptly served to the champion wrestler during official sumo fights and highly revered among true beef connoisseurs.
Only meat that meets the stringent standards of Grade 4 or above makes the cut of being the best Wagyu in the world. Fine and uniformly distributed marbling, a beautiful red lustre and firm meat texture are some of the characteristics of authentic Miyazaki beef. Rich and buttery, the well-marbled fats melt decadently with a subtle meat sweetness.
Washu Beef (和州牛 : Washugyu)
Although Washu Beef is produced in the USA, it is a culmination of the best techniques and ingredients. A crossbreed of the famous Tajima Wagyu sires and finest Black Angus females, the high-quality Washu cattle is raised on a strict Wagyu feeding program developed by one of the most experienced Japanese Wagyu Breeder.
99% of Washu beef is graded higher than the superior USDA PRIME, which means it is the cream of the crop. Not only is the meat tantalisingly delicious, it has also never been treated with hormones and antibiotics. This all-natural breeding method results in enhanced umami flavours and an excellent amount of exquisite marbling.
Mugifuji Pork (麦富士 : Mugifuji)
Reared meticulously in the pristine wilderness of Canada, Mugifuji is a very high quality pork that is produced to meet the sophisticated tastes of the Japanese consumers. The unique genetics of the Mugifuji pigs are intentionally developed to yield fattier meat with a high marbling score.
A healthy diet of top-quality wheat and grains combined with Japan’s cutting-edge breeding methods result in a highly-prized pork that is nothing short of outstanding. To ensure safe and delicious meat, no growth promoters nor animal proteins are used as well. Characterised by rosy-coloured juicy meat and delicately-sweet flavours, the fats in the Mugifuji intensify the richness of the pork without the greasiness.
If you are in a dilemma over the planning of Christmas dinners, Anzu Meat Factory has a fantastic range of Premium Meat Boxes that contain a delightful mixture of Miyazaki Beef, Washu Beef and Mugifuji Pork. Affordably priced (from $88), Anzu’s meats are quick frozen to ensure optimal freshness and vacuum-packed in convenient ready-to-cook portions. How brilliant is that!
