Snake River Farms (SRF) American Wagyu Beef are grass and hay fed on pasture for the first year of their life.
They are then fed a sustainable diet of hay, forages, grains (including corn, soft white wheat and barley), as well as potatoes, vitamins and minerals.
As the result, American Wagyu combined the richness marbling of Japanese Wagyu and robust beef flavor of American beef.
Japanese style BBQ is called Yakiniku (焼肉), and literary means grilled meat in Japanese.
The ideal thickness of the beef slice is ~6mm (1/4 inch), usually thicker than hot pot slice.
