Flank is typically a cut that you need to braise, however this A5 Hannari Wagyu Flank is perfect for a quick sear. 

It is a very tasty cut of meat thanks to its INTENSE beefy flavor; another option is to braise.

Cutting the meat against the grain is the most important thing to remember when you're serving and eating it. The grain refers to the long strands of tough fibers that you can see running through the meat.

ABOUT A5 WAGYU

A5 Miyazaki beef is measured on five factors:

2. Marbling

4. Meat color and brightness

6. Firmness

8. Texture of meat

10. Color, luster and quality of fat

In the quality grade, the lowest score from the four items of the yield grade is adopted. In other words, even if grade 5 was given to marbling, color and brightness, and firmness and texture, and only fat assessments was grade 4, the quality grade of this beef is classified as grade 4. Quality grading is severely done.

A5 means this beef excels in every single factor. It has a gorgeous webbing of fat that will make you feel a creamy mouth-feel in each bite. It's literally like tasting a cloud; a cloud of beef.

Like all of our steaks, they come vacuum sealed and have been hand-cut by our expert butchers.

THE MIYAZAKI-GYU DIFFERENCE

At Meat N' Bone we made the conscious decision of selling not only Miyazaki A5 but Miyazaki Gyu, because it is the best in the world. Other Wagyu produced from the area that does not meet the criteria for Miyazakigyu must be sold as "Miyazaki Kensan Gyu" or "Beef from Miyazaki Prefecture." 

All Miyazakigyu is Wagyu but not all Wagyu is Miyazakigyu. Miyazakigyu is one step above Miyazaki Wagyu and is the cream of the crop of all Wagyu from Miyazaki. It is quite literally the best beef in the world.

Every five years, national “Wagyu Olympics” are held to determine Japan’s, and therefore the world’s, best Wagyu. Miyazaki-Gyu is the only Wagyu Program to win this award twice in a row (2007 and 2012) and then be a runner up in 2017.

You can and will find cheaper A5 beef. In fact, even Kobe beef is cheaper. But we chose to offer the best beef in the world at the most affordable price that we could.

NEVER HAD A5 WAGYU BEEF BEFORE?

At first glance, every cut of A5 beef will be EXTREMELY fatty compared to any other steak you have ever had. That delicate and yet rich fat, which can make up to more than 60% of the steak is what makes it melt in your mouth. 

This amount of fat makes the beef have a lower melting point, meaning it will cook faster than your average steak. Cooking A5 is extremely easy. That said, it is recommended to pay close attention so that you do not burn or overcook your steaks.
