Beef Grading 101

This steak is American Wagyu Gold Grade, rated 9+ 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

The tomahawk is sourced from the rib primal which covers ribs six through twelve and is located between the chuck and loin primals. A full ribeye, like the tomahawk, has three major muscles. The longissimus dorsi, or large center eye, the complexus, a smaller side muscle which is not always present depending on where the steak is cut, and the spinalis dorsi, also called the cap of ribyeye or deckle. The cap is universally known as the single most flavorful and tender cut. The muscles of the ribeye are held together with tender sinew with large swaths of rich fat between them.

Fast fact: The bone in a bone-in steak doesn’t add a significant amount of flavor, but it does insulate the meat next to it and adds a small section of steak that is more rare than the rest of the steak. A bonus many of our customers enjoy.
