120

Pretty good deal for 6+ wagyu eye fillets. I usually prefer whole eye fillets so I can cut to the thickness preferred.

2 pieces at 2.6-2.8 kg each / approx. 5.5kg in total

          not comparing like for like.

            @jv: I see you are working hard at ozbargain.

            Wagyu Eye Fillet here and you prefer scotch fillet, so not quite the same, unless you think all meat is the same.

    What's the difference between scotch and eye fillet

      Eye fillet is from a small muscle that runs along the spine in the hindquarter of the cow and is the least hard working muscle on the animal, hence it's the most tender but also the least flavoursome.

      Scotch fillet/ribeye is attached to the ribs in the forequarter and isn't quite as tender as eye fillet but is more juicy and tastes more beefy, but is still one of the more tender cuts on the cow.

        Agreed. Good summary!

      Eye fillet for steak is pretty bland, better to use it on phở

    I usually prefer whole eye fillets so I can cut to the thickness preferred.

    You like a slice bigger than 2.5kg?

    •  

      The whole fillet is 2.5 or so kg once trimmed.
      They're saying they want the whole fillet so they can portion it to whatever size they want, 180/200/250g (maybe even 500g for a chateaubriand) etc rather than taking whatever is available at the time.

    Got a kg of this last week when it wasn't on sale. Some of the best restaurant-quality meat I've had in a long time. Too bad I have limited fridge space.

    •  

      Did you get the eye fillet pre-cut or sent whole? If the latter, is it seal packed in its own juice (like Harris Farm) or already semi dried?

      From the pic, it looks like the entire fillet is sealed in its own juice?

      •  

        Sorz cant say, wagyu I got the precut (semidried0 as they didn't have the offer on at that time.

    I expect there will be alot more deals like this until Restuarants re-open both Locally & Overseas.

    Reasonably good deal for F1 cross beef, would be an amazing deal if it was pure Wagyu beef!

    I have to admit I'm relatively new to home BBQ after getting our first BBQ (a Weber Baby Q) a couple of weeks ago. Even cooking $7 porterhouse steaks from Coles has made me realise how easy it is to make something that feels/tastes as good as a proper steakhouse (IMHO). I tried upgrading to slightly more expensive scotch fillets which were $34/kg on special this week and it's even juicier/more delicious.

    Should I keep going with my current cuts from Coles or should I be buying more expensive meat? Will it make a material difference?

      A good butcher is a step above Coles/Woolies and then dry aged is another step above again.
      Really rich flavour in a 30+ day dry aged steak, well worth the higher cost for a treat every now and then.

      There's also a noticeable difference to me in grass vs grain fed beef.

      Do whatever makes sense to you, $$$ and mental health/satisfaction wise! Having a treat every now and again isn't a bad thing.

    Just saw MUMSDAYBBQ gives an extra 5% off… $266
    I think it's only meant to apply to their breakfast BBQ pack but worked when I checked just then.

    Please note this is Black Opal Wagyu which is probably the lowest grade before you can't even call it Wagyu in Australia.

    It's a bit misleading that this is sold as Wagyu beef, but I guess it does have at least 50% Wagyu cattle genetics.

    From their Website.

    BLACK OPAL
    https://www.awmgroup.com.au/products/queensland/wagyu/brands...

    Black Opal Wagyu is an F1 Wagyu/Angus cross. The genetics of which have been developed through relationships with breeders going back 30 years in Victoria and Tasmania. All cattle are fed for a minimum of 380 days before slaughter. The consistency achieved in this supply chain is unsurpassed.

    So F1 WAGYU is
