Miyazaki Beef is a name only given to cows raised in Miyazaki which meet strict quality standards. The meat from these cows is further graded on a scale from C1 up to A5 which is the highest rank. This grading is universal with all branded beef in Japan.
The Tokyo Cut is recognized by International Chefs and beef connaisseurs as the most prized and structured for its A5 Marbling, Grain, Firmness and Structure. This cut is specifically from the Center of the sirloin and is uniform in cube for spectacular results
At a national competition that is held every 5 years and often referred to as the Olympics of Wagyu Beef, Miyazaki Beef won the top prize of the Prime Ministers Award 3 times consecutively. This means Miyazaki Beef held the top spot in Japan for 15 years straight. That is why Miyazaki Beef is so highly regarded within Japan and also why Miyazaki's calves are chosen by producers of brand cows to be raised in other regions.
