What is A5 Wagyu?

  • A5 Wagyu is the world's most marbled steak. The intense marbling and delicate tenderness makes it melt on your tongue and the rich taste sends your umami sensors soaring.
  • Wagyu (和牛 - pronouced /WAH-gyoo/) means “Japanese Cow” and is the name given to cattle breeds developed over centuries in Japan.
  • A5 is the highest rating on the BMS Grading System, the strict Japanese ranking score that indicates marbling.
  • While Japan has several breeds of cattle, Kuroge Washu is the only breed with the genetic disposition to achieve exceptional marbling and an A5 rating. We source exclusively from Kuroge Washu.

Why is it special?

  • It's super rare and hard to find. Japan has a strict quota on how much Wagyu can be exported every year and we only offer it a few times a year.
  • We've sourced our A5 Wagyu from the region that won the "Wagyu Olympics 全国和牛能力共進会" which only happens every five years.
  • - With its richness and bold umami flavor, it's an experience, not a meal. A5 Wagyu is a legendary beef that will change the way you think about steak forever.
  • Nearly half of the fat content of A5 Wagyu is oleic acid, a delicious and healthy omega-9 fatty acid. The presence of so much monounsaturated fat is why the delicate, filigreed marbling actually melts at room temperature.

A5 Wagyu is available at Crowd Cow on Memorial Day, May 28th at 9am PDT, and periodically throughout the year. Our A5 usually sells out in a few hours so be sure to sign up for the event alert above!
