Heritage pork has more marbling resulting in more tender and juicy meat
Back by popular demand, our Akaushi/Angus ground beef makes for hands-down the most popular burger we’ve ever carried!
The beef is blended using only the best cuts to a 75/25 ratio for a consistently juicy burger. The flavor is exceptionally balanced between the bold, iconic beefiness of the Angus breed and the intense marbling of the Japanese Akaushi.
While there are many variations on what can be called Wagyu, ours is the result of a mixing of the revered Akaushi breed (or Japanese red cow) with America’s mighty Angus. Our Akaushi are sourced from the very same family of farms that first brought the breed to the States, Akaushi being perhaps the most marbled beef in the world.
The first Angus bulls arrived in Kansas from Scotland in 1873, garnering negative attention due to their naturally hornless heads. Still, the breed managed to quickly acquire a demand, and Angus is now the most commonly used genetics in America.
Akaushi Beef is the Japanese Red Cow, a national treasure in Japan. Through a loophole in the Trade Act of 1992, three bulls and eight cows left Japan escorted by armed guards in a custom equipped Boeing 747 for the Texas heartland where they are still treated like a treasure to this day.
