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.
Thick skirt is one of the most flavourful cuts. This and its robust texture make it an excellent choice for ragouts and burgers. Elevate meat-based pasta sauces to another level with wagyu, and try our special wagyu beef stroganoff
or wagyu beef bolognese
recipes. Or for a quick healthy meal idea, thinly slice some thick skirt, quickly blanch and pair with an Asian-style dipping sauce of ginger, spring onions, and soy sauce
Our wagyu thick skirt comes in a single film-wrapped piece. Each piece is around 600g, though there may be natural variations in weight. The wagyu cattle are raised on Firstlight farms and are processed by Greenlea.
