Variety of Packages
We have high standards. But you already know that, because you are already here. The Wagyu we sell on our site, to the general public, has a minimum marbling content of 23%. That’s twice what Prime beef has.
Sometimes, though, we don’t hit that mark. It’d be a shame to waste beef that was only 16-22% marbled. So we offer it to our friends and family, at a very luxurious 30-45% off. This is what makes up our Wagyu steak sampler packs.
These are our same steaks, just a little less marbled. Give ‘em a go. Tell us what you think.
Our Wagyu Friends & Family Steak Sampler Packs are available in four options:
- 4 Steak Variety pack includes 2-12oz Strip Steaks and 2- 8oz Filet Mignon Steaks
- 8 Steak Variety pack includes 4-12oz Strip Steaks and 4-8oz Filet Mignon Steaks
- 4-Ribeye Steak Pack: 4-16oz Ribeye Steaks
- Average weight of each Ribeye steak is 16 ounces and around 1.5” thick
- Average weight of each Filet Mignon steak is 8 ounces and around 2” thick
- Wet aged for 56 days in own juices for ultimate moistness and flavor
Ships frozen in individual vacuum-sealed packages, on dry ice

Our Wagyu friends and family steak sets can be thawed using various methods
(see below under "Handling and Thawing" for deeper guidance). We also suggest bringing thawed steaks to room temperature for 30 minutes or so.
We always recommend cooking Wagyu beef from our friends and family steak sets to no more than Medium Rare. But your oven might throw heat better than ours, or you might be at sea level while we're up past mile-high. So, for the love of all things holy - like your precious Wagyu - take our timing specs with a grain of proverbial salt. Use your common sense and maybe even a meat thermometer and don't take our word for gospel.
Grill: Heat the grill to medium high. Season the steak with salt, at minimum, or anything else that floats your boat. Sear each side for a minute or two. We're looking for Maillard reaction - that's brown and crispy. Move steaks to a lower heat and cook for another couple maybe 4-5 minutes. Take off the heat and let rest for 5 minutes, if you can wait.
Oven: Heat oven to 425 F. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat on stove, and add a pat of butter or oil. Season the steak as your heart desires. Same idea as above: sear each side for a minute or two until browned and then transfer skillet to the oven for a few minutes, maybe 4 or 5. Take out and let rest for 5 minutes. We dare you.

Handling & Thawing
Not digging into your Wagyu right away? Place your vacuum-sealed package in your freezer upon delivery. Your meat should be good for up to 12 months in your freezer… though we doubt it will stay there that long!
Have some time? Thaw your beef in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. This is the best way to thaw, allowing the Wagyu to retain all of its natural juices for an exceptional flavor.
Hungry sooner? Keep beef in the vacuum-sealed package and submerge in a bowl of cold water for a few hours.
Change of dinner plans? Thawed steaks still in the vacuum-sealed package can be safely refrozen as long as they have remained refrigerated and have not been thawed for longer than a day.
