The Way Beef is Meant to Taste
Deep in the heart of Texas, the Gearhart Ranch produces one of the finest brands of American Wagyu beef. Our full blood Japanese black bulls are crossed with Angus cows, to produce a beef with mouth watering flavor, fantastic marbling, tender feel and a terrific dining experience.
Wagyu has the distinction of being the #1 marbling breed in the world. This marbling is high in oleic acid similar to olive oil, and has been shown to reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Wagyu marbling contains mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and lower saturated fatty acids (SFA). Think of MUFA as the "good fat" matched with salt and pepper are perfect seasonings to draw out Wagyu Excelente aromatic flavors and juiciness.
