Beef Grading 101

This roast 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

BMS 6 to 8     SRF Black Grade

BMS 9+           SRF Gold Grade




The Porterhouse is cut from the short loin, a smaller portion of the loin primal. The larger side of the steak is the longissimus dorsi muscle, the source of the New York strip. A t-shaped bone divides the steak and the smaller side of the steak is the psoas major, a muscle that receives minimal use and is the most tender of all beef cuts.

Fast fact: The Porterhouse and t-bone are both cut from the short loin. A Porterhouse must have a section of tenderloin at least 1.5 inches wide. Any smaller and it’s a t-bone.
