What is Wagyu? Wagyu means Japanese Cow and can include any of one of four breeds of Japanese Cow. Here at Lilac Hill Wagyu we have fullblood black Wagyu. Another popular type of Wagyu is Akushi which we may breed at a later time. Wagyu were first brought to the U.S. in 1975.
Wagyu beef is higher in marbling than most beef and has a unique taste & texture. When prepared correctly the marbling bastes the meat from the inside out adding to the juiciness and buttery flavor. A properly cooked Wagyu steak will melt in your mouth.
