Description

This out-of-the-ordinary steak starts with our Black Grade New York Strip that is dry-aged a minimum of 30 days to intensify the natural flavors and enhance tenderness. The New York strip has a storied history and is the go-to cut for many discerning steakhouse patrons. These dry-aged, boneless steaks are hand-cut to a wonderfully thick 1½ inches and are superior to New York strips served at most steakhouses. The target weight for each steak is 14 ounces.

Snake River Farms dry-aged beef represents a higher echelon for our American Wagyu steaks. Our partner, Prime Food Distributor, developed a proprietary method with strict protocols and quantifiable performance standards at every stage of the dry-aging process. When our beef is received, it is measured and tagged so it can be tracked electronically from start to finish. Large sub-primal cuts are aged in a meticulously controlled dry-aging environment for a minimum of 30 days. Once it is perfectly aged, our beef is hand-cut into generous steaks and shipped fresh to your door by overnight Expedited Shipping.

 

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 margling 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

Meatology

Rib-Primal-Cropped

Filet mignon, or tenderloin steak, is obtained from the loin primal located under the ribs and next to the spine. Filets mignons are sourced from the psoas major, a muscle that receives minimal use. Exercise makes a muscle tough, so the lack of physical activity makes the filet mignon a very tender steak. This muscle has minimal marbling so it does not have the flavorful fat found in ribeyes or New York strips. Our American Wagyu tenderloin has a higher amount of marbling than USDA Prime grade tenderloin which makes for a more flavorful filet mignon.

Fast fact: The correct spelling for multiple steaks is filets mignons.
