There are several ways to cook Yonezawa wagyu, however, steak is particularly popular. It is grilled right before your eyes in teppan-yaki style, so you can watch the chef’s refined techniques while enjoying delicious Yonezawa wagyu.

What is Teppanyaki?

Teppanyaki is actually a melding of two words that describes the technique or style of preparing Japanese cuisine. The word “teppan” means “iron griddle” and the Japanese word “yaki” translates to broiled, pan-fried, or grilled. Teppanyaki refers to Japanese dishes that are typically prepared using a large, flat iron griddle that typically is heated by propane gas. The chef will have all utensils and ingredients lined on the borders of the grill and will cook several dishes in front of diners with stunning flair and speed.

Seeking the best Wagyu in Japan – Yonezawa Wagyu (1) –

thread
Yonezawa City Yonezawa City
One of the three major Japanese beef brands is Yonezawa wagyu that are raised in the Yonezawa area situated in the southern part of Yamagata prefecture.

The Yonezawa beef is a high-class wagyu brand, the title that is given to Japanese black cattle grown in the area that fulfills strict requirements. The management of branded cattle is extremely strict as well, with every single animal registered in the system database, available to be searched by anyone.

Why is Yonezawa wagyu so delicious? The secret is in their feed and how they are raised. Each and every Yonezawa beef cow is carefully raised with a long-term fattening method for over 32 months. During this time, they eat rice straw produced by the mineral-rich earth of Yamagata. Most Yonezawa cows are heifers that have never given birth and have finely textured meat. Establishments with the “Yonezawa Wagyu” plaque indicate where you can enjoy genuine Yonezawa beef.

Wagyu Trivia ! (2)

The cow is a ruminant with fo... The cow is a ruminant with four stomachs: rumen; reticulum; omasum; and abomasum.
The standard of grading Wagyu... The standard of grading Wagyu in Japan is significantly strict. This benefit from feeding beer to Wagyu has been proved and spreading to the world.
Question; How many stomachs does the cow have?



Answer; Four!

The rumen is the largest, with a volume of 150–200 litres (40-50 gallons).
In the digestion system there are billions of microorganisms. They help the cow to digest and utilize nutrients in the feed. To achieve efficient feed utilization and high milk yield, the bacteria must have optimal conditions. It is the bacteria that digest the feed. However, sometimes indigestion occurs in the rumen due to high volume of grass intake. Once that happens, the microorganism system goes down and the cow would get undernourished. Therefore, the livestock farmer adds beer into cattle feed ingredients because alcohol e is broken down by microorganisms and becomes nutritious to the cow.

Wagyu Trivia ! (1)
**Question; In Japan, do farmers feed beer to Wagyu?**




Answer; Yes, it is true that Wagyu is occasionally fed beer in Japan.

It is said the first livestock farmer who fed beer to Wagyu is the one who raised the famous “Matsuzaka Wagyu” in Mie prefecture.
One theory says that they started feeding beer to their Wagyu simply because they did not want to drink much alcohol..
Because Wagyu is fed so long, and particularly in summer months when the interaction of fat cover, temperature and humidity depressed feed intake, many Wagyu goes off feed. When this happens, beer is fed to the cattle to stimulate appetite.

Japan Holds a “Wagyu Olympics” Every Five Years

Kyushu performed particularly well at what proved to be at the biggest competition. All farmers have their own passion of five years’ standing.
Miyazaki regrettably lost the championship in 2017 after a decade long championship since 2007.
Kagoshima, on the other hand, had been ranked second place twice at the last Olympic and last but one time, and finally won the championship. It will certainly trigger the worldwide fame of “Kagoshima Wagyu”.
The next Wagyu Olympics will be held in Kagoshima! All farmers should be thrilled to win the next championship!

Japan Holds a “Wagyu Olympics” Every Five Years

It's the Olympic Games you've never heard of. Since 1966, Japan's beef industry has held a nationwide competition every five years to crown the best beef in the country. It's called Zenkoku Wagyu Noryku Kyoshin-kai but it's known also as "The Wagyu Olympics."

The cow with the best meat quality is selected by the Olympic Organizer, The National Wagyu Ability Prize Show promotion office, based on the criteria of the cattle’s fat marbling and leanness. On top of those criteria, in 2017, the productivity and farmers' efforts to prepare for the future was added since picking winners based on the fact that marbling and leanness alone has reached its limit.
