More Information on Wagyu Beef



Here at Tom Hixson of Smithfield, we stock only the finest Wagyu beef available for delivery within the UK. Our certified Wagyu farming partners have refined each stage of the rearing process to ensure all Wagyu beef cuts are marbled to perfection and offer the finest dining experience.

Our Kagoshima Japanese Wagyu Sirloin, with a grade of A5 and BMS of 8 will elevate your next steak night. If you’re looking for Wagyu to share with friends, try our Kobe Japanese Wagyu Brisket. Imported straight from Japan, the brisket offers a delectable rich flavour, which only gets enhanced in the cooking process.

Where Does Wagyu Beef Come From?

Wagyu beef is beef that comes from any of the four Japanese breeds of cattle, which include Japanese Black, Polled, Brown, and Shorthorn. You can also get Wagyu outside of Japan, such as in Australia, where local cattle and Wagyu cattle are bred for the specific genes that Wagyu contains.

How is Wagyu Beef Graded?

Wagyu is graded (how the quality of the meat is judged) by a letter and a number. The quality number ranges from 1 to 5, and the yield letter ranges from A to C (5 and A being the best). To calculate the quality number, the Wagyu is graded with a Beef Marbling Score (BMS), which ranges from 1-12, 12 being the highest grade. Wagyu grading systems will change depending on where you are in the world. Tom Hixson Wagyu is graded as A5, which is the best Wagyu grade you can get.

Where Can You Buy Wagyu Beef in the UK?

You should buy Wagyu beef from certified suppliers, who meet the Japanese Wagyu guidelines. Wagyu must come from a specific breed of Japanese cattle, or contain specific genetic qualities.

Here at Tom Hixson of Smithfield, we have a range of Wagyu available online, for delivery across the UK. We work with a number of trusted Wagyu farmers, including Snake River Farms, and Wild River Wagyu, who have both refined each stage of the rearing process to ensure you receive only the finest Wagyu beef.

Is Wagyu Beef Halal?

Wagyu can sometimes be suitable for Halal diets, depending on how the cattle were raised and slaughtered. Here at Tom Hixson of Smithfield, we offer a complete range of Halal Wagyu, which doesn’t compromise on quality or flavour. Try our Halal Tom Hixson Wagyu Sirloin Steak, which is created by us with our Irish farming partners. Their diet is supplemented in their final three months with chocolate, which adds a touch of sweetness to the bite.

What is the Difference Between Wagyu and Kobe Steak?

Wagyu and Kobe beef is very similar. However, Wagyu can’t be called Kobe beef if it doesn’t come from Japan. The same product reared in a different region, for example, France, must be called Wagyu Beef. It is known that In Japanese farmers go the extra mile with their unique rearing techniques, including massaging the cattle daily, to improve marbling. Both Wagyu and Kobe beef can offer an exquisite dining experience.

What is the Best Way to Cook Wagyu?

When cooking Wagyu steak, you must be careful to preserve the delicate buttery flavour that is found within the meat. The way you cook Wagyu will depend on the meat cut. For our classic Wagyu sirloin steak, season generously with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Heat oil in a hot pan, and add in your room temperature Wagyu. Cook for a few minutes on each side, before basting the meat with the juices in the pan. Once cooked, remove and rest, before slicing and serving alongside a smashed cucumber salad and tantalising wasabi dressing.

For our larger Wagyu joints, like our Australian Wagyu Brisket, try smoking over a few hours at your next BBQ. Smoking results in wonderfully tender beef, which almost melts in your mouth.
