LocalFound 23rd Jul
Whether you're being healthy, or serving it up alongside lashings of sauce and chips, it doesn't get much better than a big juicy steak.

And it's good news for meat-eaters, as discount supermarket Aldi have just announced that they're offering the most expensive steak cuts in the world for a decent £7.99.

Set to hit shelves this Thursday (that's the 26th), the prized steaks have previously sold out in a matter of days, and being a Specialbuy, once they're gone, they're gone forever.

What does £7.99 mean, Is it a Kilo or a pack? for £7.99


£7.99/kg? You're either out of touch or very optimistic. It's for 227g. A bit over £35/kg.

bit too much fat in there for my liking but appreciate the piccy



The Ribeye cut comes from between the rib bones of the bull and is marbled with more fat than most steaks, meaning it offers the boldest flavour.
I don't know what an omly is, so I can't tell you.

They tend to sell these sort of things for the same price per pack rather than by the kilo, for example the big fathers day steaks were all the same price per pack.

I'm not 100% sure to be honest, but if it's a kilo, I'll have 2
Is it the Waguy that it's technically not even a waguy but 1/4 omly and rest just normal cow
I don't know what an omly is, so I can't tell you.

Thanks for the heads up, wouldn't mind trying a couple of sirloins. The wagyu burgers are good for the money when they come in.

Wagyu is always s marbled heavily. It renders down when cooking though

Aldi sell them but you can never get hold of them. I've made halloumi chips at home and they are lush.

Really doesn't look much like wagyu which is a shame
To all stake specialists... On normal day to day basis, what's the best place to buy sirloin and ribeye? From what I was told the more white 'veins' the better?

Do you also have your steak well done
Wagyu is a buzz word and the lineage is dairy cow with a dash of wagyu in there, instead of getting the new 'Aberdeen Angus ' just get a good quality steak instead. A proper wagyu steak is pink the is so much fat in there this is not worth the premium as it isn't a premium steak... It might taste nice but many steaks will taste nice

Im out of touch as I have never had this meat before thus asking the question how much is it a kilo, no need for the sarcasm,

That's extreme Wagyu. Some actually has some meat in it.

I like Morrisons The Best Ribeye. Good thickness, good marbling and aged for a bit.

1h in the Anova at 53C and 25 seconds a side on a hot cast iron skillet for medium rare.

I have had some very nice fillet steaks from Morrisons in the last few months too that come out superb at 52 C for about 90 minutes using my Anova too. Is it the steak or the Anova I wonder, I keep meaning to get a much cheaper cut and try it for about 8 hours to see how that comes out but haven't got around to trying it yet.

Good lord no, I wouldn't have it that rare
Came to decide whether to nip to Aldi to try some of these steaks on the BBQ. Left wanting a kitchen gadget as well. There must be some kind of therapy available for hotukdeals users. My new year's resolution was to take a break. Lasted 1 day. The thought of missing a bargain (shudders). I love this site so much. I don't think I've bought much I don't actually use, just so much stuff I didn't know I needed until I saw it on here and then HAD to buy it as it was such a bargain. Don't get me started on headphones.
There is very little regulation on the ability to call something Wagyu. It's just enough that the bull that fathered it to be Wagyu, meaning unless you source the beef from Japan, you're getting something that's only half-Wagyu. This is going to get even worse once we start getting into third and fourth generation bulls (each offspring to a mixed Wagyu bull and non Wagyu cow).

With current regulation there will be little way to tell if you're just getting a common UK breed with a tiny drop of Wagyu Genes or a fully fledged one. There are UK farms determined to keep their cows as close to pure bred as they possibly can though. There is a desperate need for some sort of Wagyu kite mark so you can tell is you're getting something 10% Wagyu lineage or 100%..

Looking at that steak in the picture, there's nowhere near the marbling you should expect.
Costco had some japanese wagyu steaks not tried them but they looked much , more like the steak i get in japan than this knockoff
Edited by: "Infractionboi" 24th Jul
It's not Wagyu, not even remotely. Real Wagyu costs way more than this, even knockoffs.

I saw these for the first time in Aldi last week - in the freezer section. Tried them at the weekend and found them super super salty. Worth a try, but definitely not my taste.
