Aldi sell world's best steak Wagyu for £7.29

Found 16th Jun 2016
Aldi are at it again - they're selling something really fancy, for a really cheap price.

They're offering what is regarded to be the world's best steak - the wagyu - which goes for big money in restaurants. What might cost you £50 in a swish eaterie, will cost you just £7.29 at Aldi.

It'll be on sale tomorrow, and of course, stocks will be limited so you need to act quickly if you want in.

You could of course, go to your local butchers and see what they've got, but that's not what this article is about.

Aldi's wagyu steaks are from cattle that are 100% grass fed in New Zealand, and have a rich, distinctive flavour. It is a really, really lovely cut of meat in fairness.

Aldi expect that there's going to be a bit of a rush on for these wagyu steaks, so they're imposing a limit of two steaks per customer.

That means, if there's a few of you intending to eat these together, more than one of you is going to have to queue up for them.

While you're there, you can see if they've got any of their special gin in stock, which is sold at a bargain price, and was awarded one of the best tipples in the whole world not too long ago.

Anyway, here's the wagyu steak you're looking for.

"world's best steak" - according to whom?
Should be nice with ketchup. Ta.
It is worlds best, but this is not proper Waygu, it only comes from the Waygu cow.
The actual steak which is massaged and fed beer costs about 50.00 - 75.00 for a steak.
They are just riding coattails, trying to rip off a proper expensive piece of meat
Aldi's normal fillet steaks very good so happy to give these a try......not expecting the sort of stuff you get in Nobu but if its nice its nice...simple as that....pretty sure no one is really expecting it to taste like a £75 steak

For meat to be called Wagyu only the bull of the parent needs to be a Wagyu bull, these are now bred in the UK and the differentiator from other beef is the high fat content / marbling which improves the flavour. The beer/massage thing is a load of nonsense (or makes little difference)- it's the breed of cattle which makes the difference, even only 50% Wagyu.

On top of that, great steaks like Angus, Scotch, Longhorn, USDA Prime, Belted Galloway and indeed Wagyu are all unique in their own right but are same in the way the cow is slaughtered at the age of two or three. Hence why I don't think Wagyu cannot be designated as the world's best.
Not proper Wagu, but may taste OK, worth a go for the price. Had an $80 wagu steak a few weeks ago, fantastic tender steak, but nowt beats a quality Angus.

Really? I used to live in the highlands and the local beef, from the butcher, was the best flavour ever. Deep and earthy. Wagyu is too refined for me.

Why's it the worlds best steak?

True story.

Now you're talking. Had a chuleton de buey in Santander recently, from a Rubi Gallega that was at least seven years old - almost as good as those served in Bar Nestor in San Seb
they say it is worth £90 gazettelive.co.uk/wha…220
what profit can I expect to make with ebay??
EDIT, this is one of the comments I found: Wagyu beef is from Japan not New Zealand.. suppose its the same as Burger King buying Angus beef from Brazil.. it isnt Wagyu beef its just a labelling teqnique to make you think your getting something for cheap.. last week this same beef was in a different pack labeled new zealand beef..

Kobe is the area in Japan that breeds Wagyu cattle.

If you want the top steak you need to ask for Kobe beef.

Indeed - Rubia Gallegas are reared for beef only and at the top level can reach a grand age of seventeen compared to young cows at ages of two or three.
You really think this is the world's best...and Aldi have somehow decided to sell it cheap? It's not even proper Wagyu.
i'm wary any product from japan.
it might be radioactive.
at lease aldi wagyu steak is not from japan.

I think it is more, is it better than a normal steak?
Don't like beef, prefer chicken but Hot anyway!

Depends what you class as normal. Better than Asda or Aldi own brands, but you get what you pay for. I tried it when they last had it and it had virtually no flavour at all.
Well never got the tohahawk so might as well try this. Will have to set the alarm though
Wow, some right steak snobs on here. Is £7.29 for **** sake

After watching this, it's hard to disagree....

My Santander in Wolverhampton says this is nonsense
There is no way Aldi are going to be selling authentic Wagyu beef, there will be some disclaimer.
Wagyu is what Jonathan Ross puts on his pasta.

Don't all cows eat Grass!?


Some cows have more grass in their diet than others: en.wikipedia.org/wik…ing
(Wagyu aren't the only grass-fed cattle though, I assume the previous poster was joking.)
