American filmmaker and environmental activist, Matthew Berdyck, announced the debut of Wandering Plains Wagyu, his own personal brand of Japanese purebred American Wagyu beef.
Wagyu, which translates to “Japanese cow,” is known as the most sought-after beef in the world, featuring high marbling, unmatched tenderness, and rich buttery flavor.
Berdyck said, “I first developed my love for fine steaks after a dinner at Ruth’s Chris, with my longtime friend and infamous White House Gate Crasher, Tareq Salahi, who is known for his unbelievable epicurean tastes in everything from travel to food.”
“After this dinner, I began traveling the country seeking out the best steaks money could buy, leading me to almost every amazing upscale steakhouse from D.C. to Los Angeles. I hit Fleming’s, Morton’s, Del Frisco’s, Delmonico’s, and everything in between.”
“It was a visit to Mastro’s Ocean Club, in Malibu, with a friend who is a famous Hollywood producer, that introduced me to wagyu beef. Once I tried it, I was floored. I’d never had a steak that good in my entire life. It was then that I struck on the idea of creating my own personal brand of Amercian Wagyu.”
There are several types of wagyu beef. Japanese, Australian, and American are the predominant flavor profiles. American Wagyu is generally crossbred with Angus. Any beef that is higher than 60% wagyu is considered to be American Wagyu.
Berdyck continued, “After I came up with the idea for my own brand of beef, I began traveling the country seeking out the best cuts of wagyu beef I could possibly find until I happened upon a farm in southern Iowa that was putting out steaks that were utterly unbelievable.”
Wandering Plains Wagyu is purebred wagyu. Purebred is any kind of wagyu that is higher than 93% original Japanese bloodline, giving it a 33% edge over traditional American Wagyu.
“When I found these steaks, I then had them dry aged 23 days, which I believe is the optimal aging point that provides the best flavor. Some steaks taste good on the outside, but these steaks exude rich, buttery flavor from every part of the steak as if each individual cell has been infused with delicious wagyu goodness.”
All Wandering Plains products are USDA Inspected and come from certified bloodlines, assuring the highest level of quality and the finest cuts of steak money can buy.
Wandering Plains Wagyu will be available for online purchase and wholesale to restaurants in January of 2019.
