Japanese A5 wagyu beef is super expensive. Obviously, the price will fluctuate some, but the average price right now is around $250 per pound.
That’s about $15 per ounce!
The average steak is about 225 grams or 7.9 ounces; putting the average A5 wagyu steak price at a whopping $118 unprepared.
Then the restaurant will add their charges on top of that.
So why so expensive?
Craftsmanship & Pride + Attention to Detail
The Japanese rancher takes exceptional care in hopes their cattle will become the legendary A5 rank.
And even after all of that exceptional care, only a tiny percentage of the cattle will truly reach the coveted A5 grade.
I recommend A4 wagyu.
I know A5 is the best-of-the-best… but guess what.
There’s a darn good chance you won’t notice the difference–and you can find A4 wagyu for less than half the price of A5!
