Grass-fed wagyu tenderloin

Current Stock:
New Zealand cattle roam in open fields and munch on grass - and only grass - just as nature intended. There are only a few places in the world where this is possible. Kiwi farmers are blessed with an abundance of clean water and a temperate climate, so let their herds graze in fields their whole lives, without having to rely on grain-based feed. This practice reflects the core principle of Firstlight: sustainability. The result is not only happier and healthier animals, but beef that is tastier and better for you.
Be happy in the knowledge that Firstlight wagyu has more healthy omega-3 fatty acids and less saturated fat than other types of beef, all without the use of antibiotics, hormones or GMO. So pure grass-fed beef from Firstlight is a safe and healthy choice for the whole family. All our wagyu beef also contains a good amount of protein, while still being low in carbohydrates, making it an ideal component of a keto diet.
Cooking Tips
Wagyu beef is renowned for its marbling, the extent of which is measured by the marbling score. Choose a score of M6 (roughly equivalent to A5 in the Japanese system) if you like a well-marbled steak. If you prefer a leaner cut, M3-5 is a better choice, as it indicates a level of intra-muscular fat of around 3-5%. Learn more about wagyu marbling scores and grading systems here.
Tenderloin is the best cut for a traditional Beef Wellington as the buttery pastry and creamy duxelles balance out the low fat content of the meat. Or you can try spicing up your Sunday roast by wrapping this cut in manuka honey-cured bacon and wild mushrooms.
Our wagyu tenderloin comes in vacuum-packed in a ~2.4kg piece.
