Elevating Quality. Elevating Taste

Tony's American Wagyu

About Tony’s Wagyu Beef

At Tony’s, we carry American Wagyu Beef, which is a crossbreed of Japanese Wagyu cattle and traditional American cattle, like Angus. Our Wagyu Beef, also known as “Kobe-style” beef, is renowned for its exceptional marbling, tenderness, and flavor due to its high levels of intramuscular fat. This marbling gives the meat a buttery flavor texture and a rich, beefy flavor that enhances the steak-eating experience.

The Beef Marble Score – What is it?

The Beef Marbling Score (BMS) is a grading system used to evaluate the amount and distribution of intramuscular fat, or marbling, in beef carcasses. Marbling refers to the white streaks of fat within the muscle tissue, which contributes to the flavor, tenderness, and juiciness of the meat.

The BMS scale typically ranges from 1 to 12, with higher numbers indicating greater amounts of marbling. Each number on the scale corresponds to specific visual criteria, such as the size and distribution of the marbling within the meat.

Beef with higher BMS scores typically commands higher prices due to its superior tenderness, flavor, and overall quality. The BMS is essential in grading Wagyu beef, where abundant marbling is a defining characteristic of the breed.

Tony’s carries American Wagyu measuring between 7 and 10 BMS. This is over three times the amount of marbling in a USDA Prime Steak.

More than a tasty Steak

Wagyu Health Benefits

American Wagyu Beef is well-known for its health benefits due to its high concentration of monounsaturated fats, which can help lower LDL cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s also rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, which possess anti-inflammatory properties, promote joint health, and enhance brain function.

Wagyu Cattle Feeding

Our Wagyu cattle are finished fed 400+ days of feed and often finish out at around 1200 lbs. – this is over four times what the average cattle in the US are fed out for. These animals are fed at a much slower rate on a 100% vegetarian diet, leading these animals to put marbling on at a much slower, consistent rate, leading to a much more abundant uniform marbling than conventional beef. After harvesting the cattle, the meat is aged for 21 days, creating a well-developed flavor that is supremely tender.

A tasty pedigree

American Wagyu Bloodlines

Authentic Japanese Wagyu comes from the highly revered Kuroge-washu (Japanese Black) cattle with a pure bloodline. It is common to mix Japanese Black with other bloodlines, such as American Angus, to produce a whole new category of Wagyu beef known as American Wagyu.

Tony’s American Wagyu cattle are categorized as F1. F1 Wagyu are 50% Wagyu and 50% Black Angus, which brings a more robust steak flavor enhanced by crossbreeding with American cattle.

In addition, our American Wagyu cattle are raised with no antibiotics or growth hormones to ensure healthy living and the highest quality product possible.

Wagyu Cooking tips

Cooking Wagyu beef is like cooking other types of beef, and due to its high amounts of marbling, Wagyu is very forgiving.
