The delicious Wagyu steaks our Members so enjoy has now been joined by this magnificent Rib of Beef—it is of course delicious! Lauded as the best beef money can buy, Wagyu holds top spot for many on the list of foods to try. Reason? In two words: fat and flavour. The intricate pattern of intramuscular fat that laces through the meat—and in the rib that lacing of extra fat and the delicious flavour closest to the bone—makes it sensationally tender and gives it a taste all its own. It is also good for human health, a perfect combination.
It comes from Ifor Humphreys, who raises his Wagyu cattle free-range on the Welsh hills on a diet of beer, grass and racehorse rations, together with the requisite massage which all self-respecting Wagyu cattle require. We all know how flavoursome rib of beef on the bone is—but this finest Welsh Wagyu beef rib joint is on a higher plane altogether. This is great beef with wonderful marbling, which creates the succulent, melt-in-the-mouth texture and the rich, delicious flavour. And because Ifor grazes his cattle on grass for as much of the year as he can, our Tasting Panel finds it has even better flavour than other Wagyu. This will give your family and guests a feast to remember—the finest possible beef, as served in Michelin-starred restaurants—but for you, at a fraction of the price. Pictured, the 3.5kg rib joint.
