The other day I had a special house guest, and I wanted to show them how exciting, delicious and easy-to-cook Craft Beef from Crowd Cow is -- better than anything sold anywhere else online, in stores or even in high end steak houses. So I reached into my freezer and pulled three New York steak cuts from three very different farms and breeds: a spectacularly marbled A5 Kuroge Washu striploin from Japan (raised in Kagoshima which earned...

Raw Wagyu from Pacific Rogue Cattle Company So what's the deal with Wagyu? The word itself means "Japanese cow" and is the name given to cattle breeds developed in Japan. There are four breeds of Japanese cattle that can be called Wagyu, but the Kuroge-washu breed, or Japanese Black, stands apart for its genetic predisposition to create finely grained marbling. The Kuroge-washu breed comprises 90% of cattle in Japan. Other than its...

August 31st, 2018 by Caitlin Postal • Read 27,809 times • 2 min read

People in the know are calling it "the next Wagyu" — because, like Japanese Kuroge Washu, the Piedmontese breed enjoys a unique genetic ability to create a unique and delictable meat that other breeds can not. As a result, this beef is incredibly lean, but like 100% purebred and Wagyu from Japan, it is ridiculously tender and exhibits a sweet flavor profile.

When you think of Texas, you probably think of Longhorn cattle and barbecue joints. We did too until we took a trip to Texas last May where we met with independent ranchers and enjoyed some great-tasting meat. Texas is a big state but nothing prepared me for just how big it really is and just how much variety there is. We drove over 1200 miles in four days and passed through hill country, desert cacti, and pretty much everything in between. ...
