Japanese "A5" Wagyu Is One of the World's Most Coveted Steaks | Food Skills

  • Published on Oct 9, 2017
  • When it comes to producing high-quality steak, Japan has long reigned supreme. But for steak-lovers craving the best of the very best, look no further than Japanese "A5" wagyu. The highest grade given to a cut of Japanese beef, A5 wagyu is coveted for its buttery texture and incredibly detailed marbling. At Old Homestead Steakhouse-a restaurant that's been serving up high-end beef since 1868-12 ounces of A5 wagyu will set meat obsessives back a whopping $350. Rich, flavorful, and incredibly hard to come by, A5 wagyu belongs on every steak-lover's bucket list.

    Had this last month. A six ounce portion costed me 150. But holy shit that's the best steak I've ever eaten. Actually probably the single best thing. Seriously. If you get the chance. Splurge. It's worth it.

    Come on guys! I consider myself a die hard fan of FWF. But deep dish pizza - and now wagyu steak? Do you really run out of ideas in the Food Skills section? Because everyone on TVclip with a food channel has done one of those episodes like looooong ago. Step it up.

    They so cooked that incorrectly... I wouldn't pay $350 at this place. If you want a real Wagyu go to Morimoto's in Napa.

    Yeah, but the video ended before the guy who ate it commented about the steak. Maybe the review was along the lines of "can I get a steak instead of a grilled hunk of fat?"

    why not show the certificate of the beef when you're making an ad like this?
    it's highly unlikely that they have a steady suply of A5 wagyu.

    $350.00 USD for a plate of fried fat? That looked 70% fat and 30% meat, even bacon has more meat than that crap.

    Personally, I don't like the greasy coating my mouth gets when I eat wagyu. With 350 bucks, I'd rather go to Peter Luger, order a steak for two, some creamed spinach and a slice of that thick bacon and i can afford to come back the next day if i haven't died from a heart attack by that time.

    So it tasted like? Japans Kobe is the best in the world, is this close? I need answers. If it comes from Japan it's been frozen which makes it 3rd best at best! Anything that has been frozen is not worth $20 not a lone $350

    that wobble at 0:53 makes the meat look overcooked and rubbery. I imagine the texture is like an overcooked pork steak. Not appealing TBH

    1.9 million deliberate subscribed viewers and posted without voice over is the equivalent of a 1980/90s U.S. commercial for Sizzler, T.G.I. Fridays, Chili's, Outback Steakhouse, etc. First We Feast - you can do better.

    It feels too much like I'm just buying a lot of expensive fat with very small amounts of juicy tender meat. Shouldn't meat be tender and taste great WITHOUT fat? I feel like that would be much more coveted

      No. It's the fat that makes meat taste good.

  • iRTehSecks

    Nothing says failing like Americanized anything in terms of food. I would spend the extra Gs to go to Japan and experience real kobe before I spent money on an import. If America can manage to fuck up fast food to save a buck, imagine what other corners they'd cut for shmucks willing to spend $350 on 12oz of beef. I love the convenience of NYC but other than that, EVERYTHING else is better outside of this country.
    And actual Jap kobe has way more meat than it does fat. That looks like the way I like my bacon, not steak..

    Not sure what's supposed to be good about this. I was born and grew up in Tuscany, where we have the cult of Fiorentina (google it if you never heard of it) so our idea of delicious meat is far far far from this video. Fat isn't really our thing.

    okay so i had one of the best beef which is matsusaka, and i will tell anyone who wants to try kobe or wagyu or whatver, its not worth it, every youtuber keeps saying " ohh its so good its like butter" i dont get why they just dont say its the same as fat, thats it, you cant eat alot of it because its the same as fat youd get disgusted abit, anyway, just letting people know, its just meat that taste like fat.

    PEOPLE! Do NOT make any assumptions on Wagyu or Kobe beef based off this video, at least watch another video. Something so rare and expensive should not be thrown around like this, and overcooking it like it's some piece of bacon? I'm just saying guys, scroll up, hit that search bar and see the difference

    its fatty beef, dont get the hype honestly. and you ruined the steak by ordering it cooked to shit , you wanna cook fatty beef less so all the fat doesnt just melt out before you even bite it
