Wagyu Bone in striploin

Yesterday at the bulk butcher I asked if he had any wagyu beef. He replied that because Bricks buys them for their restaurant that he has them in 17.50 lb cryovacs for $13.88 a pound. Had to get a bag and asked for about 1 1/4” steaks cut. Got 13 steaks overall, vacuum sealed in individual options of about 21 oz each. 



Two are are salted and in the fridge for the next few hours. We’ll see how they taste, later.

    Here are the results. Not as good as in high end steakhouse, but leaps above the what you can get at the grocery store. One of these days I’m going to have to try SRF.

    Very nice. Was there much fat trimmed?

    I would gladly pay $13.88 a lb for those, love well marbled strips when you can get them.

    Hardly any fat had to be trimmed. Butcher included the trimmings because I wanted to see them. About 4 oz over 17.5 pounds. I trimmed the tips of each strip as you can see in the before and after pictures. 

    We we were pleased with the outcome. Especially for the price.
