Aldi Wagyu beef 8oz for only £6.99

Found 4th Jun 2014
Wagyu beef stands out from other meat because of its distinctive marbling with fat, which melts into the meat during cooking to produce a fabulous taste and moist texture.
Most places tend to sell this for £100 per kilo!!
Aldi is doing it for £25 a kilo
Enjoy!

I make this £30.82 per kg too.

are you referring to this 'meat glue' youtube clip?

I have eaten wagyu several times in Japan - it is very nice but also very rich. I little of the real stuff is better than a lot of this "foreign" cross-breed stuff ( I tried the asda "wagyu" when it first came out and can confirm it isn't even close to the real deal.)

If you get it off the meat counter in asda they'll cut it to whatever thickness you'd like. And I'm certain it's roughly the same price. We usually get 3 pieces of sirloin 2 about inch and a half and 1 about an inch, usually about £22

Wagyu is a bread, Kobe is the spec. Is this Wagyu yes... Has the cattle been raised up to Kobe standard no.

Eh! Beef v pork?

Had one of those Dalepak Chinese Style Pork Ribsteaks in my student days (yes, money was tight & I can remember they cost £1 from freezer shops) & trust me the amount of fat content that comes out is shocking. Not teaspoons of it but tablespoons, litterly drowns in it. oO

Change you diet if I were you. Once in a while is fine but I wouldn't eat this regularly. In honestly there's nothing so Chinese about it but just colourings/flavourings. You can forget it been 100% real lean pork.

Don't think the real Chinese will use this as they usualy prefer 100% real lean pork with small amount of meat fat for taste.

As the going says, you are what you eat.

was just using them as an example of some weird looking meat
not had one for a while... making myself peckish!

I am sure aldi shoppers will buy and enjoy this beef as they only expect below average standard food.

Actually I'm a farmer and very rarely shop at supermarkets as I find their food of a low quality.however I was very surprised at the high quality of aldi rib eye steak when recently dining at a friends. It was as good as my local butchers and far superior to waitrose which is the only other supermarket steak I've eaten in recent memory.

Agree. I bought Lidl's finest fillet steak when on offer for my wife' birthday a few months ago (30% discounted as was near best before date, was £4 for about 250g). It was one of the best steaks I've ever had the pleasure of eating - I'm Brazilian so know a good meat when I have one and in terms of quality couldn't believe how succulent it was.

Will certainly look out for this when in Aldi. Added heat, op ;-)

Stop your whingeing and
enjoy the beef.
