Description

Our American Wagyu steaks are elevated compared to conventional sirloins and have superior flavor and texture. Each sirloin is lean with moderate beef flavor and a satisfying firm bite. We cut our sirloins from the large boneless section of the top sirloin, considered to be superior to the bottom sirloin. This classic steak works well with marinades and is the perfect candidate for a midweek steak night. 

 

Beef Grading 101

 This steak is American Wagyu Black Grade, rated 6 to 8 on the Japanese Beef Marbling Score (BMS)

Beef sold in the U.S. is graded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are eight total grades and the top grade is USDA Prime.

All Snake River Farms American Wagyu beef grades above Prime. Special breeds of cattle like Japanese Wagyu are capable of producing marbling beyond their American counterparts. To grade this high level of marbling, we adopted the Japanese Beef Marbling Score.

Using BMS, beef marbling is measured on a scale from 1 to 12, with a 1 being Select beef and a 12 being the highest level of marbling possible.

BMS 4 to 5     USDA Prime

BMS 6 to 8     SRF Black Grade

BMS 9+           SRF Gold Grade

Loin_Primal

The sirloin, part of the loin primal, is located between the short loin and round at the top and back end of the animal. The sirloin contains top and bottom sections. Our sirloin filets are cut from the top sirloin butt, specifically the gluteous medius muscle.

Fast fact: The name sirloin comes from the Middle English surloine, which was derived from the French word surlonge, meaning “above the loin.”
