Imperial Wagyu. The best cuts - our selection of Japanese beef.
The cattle imported exclusively for us from Japan come from the prefecture of Miyazaki and are among the absolute best in the world. Delicately melting on the palate, buttery in texture – pure enjoyment for all lovers of high-quality meat products.
The cuts selected for Imperial Wagyu have a particularly intensive marbling of at least BMS 7 (Beef Marbling Standard), tested by the Japan Meat Grading Association. Of course, all cuts achieve the highest quality class A5.

The right sauce for Imperial Wagyu?
Perfectly prepared Imperial Wagyu doesn’t need much to shine. Some good sea salt, either placed directly on the tranche or next to the meat on the plate, makes for a great treat. You can increase this with wasabi and of course and very classic, some best soy sauce. We recommend the particularly intense sauces from Soy & Soul. Of course, you can also serve Jens Rittmeyer’s stewed beef jus or thyme-shallot stock as a slightly warmed dip with the Imperial Wagyu.
This is how you prepare Imperial Wagyu easily and without risk. The 12 tips for perfect Wagyu!
- Defrost the deep-frozen Wagyu gently overnight in the refrigerator in a vacuum bag. With a thawing time of more than 12 hours, it is advisable to remove the meat from the vacuum bag and wrap it in cling film.
- Take Wagyu out of the fridge about half an hour before preparation – but no longer, as the intramuscular fat begins to melt at room temperature.
- Use kitchen paper to remove any meat juices from the steak
- Do not prepare Wagyu directly over the embers or open fire, due to the high proportion of intramuscular fat there is a risk of fat fire
- Ideally prepare Wagyu on a hot stainless steel plate (teppanyaki grill) or in a good cast iron pan at around 250 degrees
- Additional fat for frying is not absolutely necessary, since Wagyu already has a high fat content
- With the thumb-thick cuts we deliver, the Wagyu should be fried for about 2-2.5 minutes per side until a nice golden crust has formed
- Cook Wagyu in indirect heat (e.g. oven) at 140 degrees to a core temperature of 46-48 degrees (rare) (only applies to thicker filet mignon or chateaubriand cuts)
- Let the Wagyu steak rest outside of the pan for about 3-4 minutes
- Cut the Wagyu steak into thin slices and season with fleur de sel and a good pepper if you like
- Served on a plate that has been preheated to 45-50 degrees, the slices stay warm longer
- As an alternative to salt, a few drops of soy sauce or ponzu can be added to the meat to season it – or, as is usually the case in Japan, put some salt separately on the plate. In this way, seasoning can be added individually and to each piece.
Imported from Japan - processed and portioned in a German master workshop.
With such a high-quality product, no step should be left to chance. Imperial Wagyu cattle grow up in the Japanese province of Miyazaki and are slaughtered there. From there they are cooled and flown to Germany. Further processing is also carried out by trained, Japanese master hands. The various cuts are cut in our master workshop and checked for quality and weight. In this way we can ensure that you not only receive a perfect product, but also always at least the guaranteed weight of 120g or 150g. The finished cuts are then shock-frozen in a particularly gentle manner and vacuum-packed in portions in about thumb-thick cuts.
