Wagyu being Halal will depend on the way the beef was slaughtered before being butchered. All Wagyu beef under our Halal category has been slaughtered while adhering to the British Halal Food Authority guidelines. Wagyu cows live a pain-free life, with plenty of space to roam, clean water, fresh air, and nutritious food.
Wagyu beef, also known as Kobe beef, comes from cows that have been bred with native Japanese cattle, who hold the Wagyu genetic strain. Wagyu beef is highly acclaimed all around the world by Michelin-starred chefs who swear by it due to top quality marbling which delivers distinctive, rich flavours.
Our farming partners, Wild River Wagyu and Snake River Farms, have refined each stage of the rearing process, from breeding and cattle selection through to finishing and processing, to produce truly sensational Australian and American Wagyu.
Heat oil in a pan on high heat, and render the fat along the side of your room-temperature, seasoned steak. Once you have achieved a golden crust, cook the steak on each side for a couple of minutes until it has reached the desired doneness. You could use a temperature probe to measure the internal temperature of the steak. Leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Alongside your favourite side dishes, wagyu pairs excellently alongside an elegant red wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. If you prefer white wine with your steak dinner, opt for a zesty white such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.
Halal wagyu beef is best bought from a high-quality butcher with full halal traceability. If you don’t have a wagyu butcher locally to you, order online from Tom Hixson for delivery straight to your door.
Halal wagyu beef originated with Japanese cattle, whereas wagyu these days can come from cattle anywhere in the world, as long as they have been bred with pure wagyu cattle and contain unique wagyu genetics.
Wagyu beef offers a unique quality due to the prized strain of genetics found within the breed, as well as the extensive rearing process (which isn’t cheap for farmers to maintain). Wagyu cattle live an all-natural diet and relaxing lifestyle, which all contribute to the high levels of flavourful intramuscular fat marbling.
A wagyu burger is a burger patty made from high-grade wagyu meat, that has been minced up and shaped accordingly. The unique marbling within wagyu meat infuses the burger with a luxurious taste and buttery mouthfeel.
