Why Mishima Reserve Ultra?
If you're a steak lover looking to take your culinary experience to the next level, or if you're curious about the world of Wagyu beef, Mishima Reserve Ultra cuts are the perfect choice. These cuts are renowned for their exceptional flavor and buttery texture, elevating them far above the average beef cut. One of the reasons for their superior taste and texture is the abundant intramuscular fat, also known as marbling, which is a hallmark of their American Wagyu beef. As these fine lines of fat melt into the steak during cooking, they impart a rich, decadent flavor and also help keep the meat moist and tender, preventing natural juices from evaporating.
