  • Japan is home to some of the world's most coveted cuts of meat. But what makes wagyu so expensive? From an $85 wagyu sando with Hot Ones host Sean Evans, to a $350 wagyu steak with her old boss Philip DeFranco, Reina Scully is eating her way through NYC’s most decadent hunks of Japanese beef with a couple of friends. But what gives wagyu its famously marbled fat? And what's the deal with American wagyu popping up at restaurants? Reina first needs to head to butcher shop Japan Premium Beef for a true wagyu crash course. Find out if NYC's most expensive steaks really live up to the price tag on an all-new episode of Gochi Gang.

      CAN YOU SAY......... ~PRETENTIOUS~?? WAGYU IS OVERRATED BEEF~!~ WAY WAY OVERRATED~!~!~ I WOULD RATHER EAT A STEAK FROM THE PIEDMONTESE IN ITALY! IN ITALY THEY SOMETIMES CUT A PORTERHOUSE, OR A RIB-STEAK UP TO 4 INCHES.... AND FLAME BROIL IT ON THE SURFACE FOR BARELY 5, 10 MINUTES MAX! EXTREMELY TENDER BEEF,, AND OUNCE 4 OUNCE HAS LESS CALORIES THAN SALMON~!~!~!~ IT'S WORLD FAMOUS, EXPENSIVE,, AND HEALTHIER THAN WAGYU! YEAH,, COULDN'T HAVE NAMED IT MORE APPROPRIATELY....... THEY "WAGYU" RIGHT UP THE WASSOULL~!~!~!~

    At first I thought that my predilection for beer, and my sensibilities in music would help me to pay off my student loan debt by selling my marbled flesh. But then I heard that it was all genetics.

                            🤢 Sorry, but that much fat is gross. When I eat beef, which here in farm country USA is at minimum 3X a week, I get the meat with as little marbling as is possible. A superb cut has next to no white in it, and is a nice red that deepens when cooked. 🤤
