IO, Jakarta – The food menu in the form of Wagyu meat is often listed in several big city restaurants, especially steak restaurants. Wagyu meat is known for its softness so it is suitable for cooking steaks. Wagyu (wa means “typical Japanese” and gyu Means “cow”) refers to the type of cow that is genetically focused to have a uniform distribution of fat and a high percentage of unsaturated fats. Wagyu meat is famous throughout the world because of the character of its fat distribution, natural delicious taste, and tenderness. Wagyu’s soft texture is obtained because these cows come from a special type and get special maintenance techniques, such as massage and the addition of beer or sake in the feed. Some areas in Japan are famous for the quality of Wagyu meat which is produced and exported throughout the world.
Marbling is a fine streak of white fat in the meat which gives a delicious and sweet taste to the meat and provides a soft texture to the meat. Marbling in meat is formed because cattle are given high energy from grain feed. The more marbling the higher the meat class.
