Okay, you probably have a ton of questions after reading that first paragraph. What is Mishima Reserve? America makes Wagyu beef? What the heck is Zabuton? And you are making it into a sandwich?


To be honest, I had all of the same questions the first time I heard of American Wagyu. But luckily, I have the answers for all of them now!


What is Mishima Reserve?


Mishima Reserve is a high quality American producer of Japanese Heritage breed Wagyu beef of the Kuroge Washu Bloodlines. They are raised naturally with a focus on reducing their carbon footprint by maintaining high quality standards and practices, their beef is born & raised responsibly in the USA by the best ranchers across the Northwest & Rocky Mountains.


American makes Wagyu Beef?


Yes they do and it is amazing… Mishima Reserve is just one of many great producers of American Wagyu. They, however, have had years of study learning all the in’s and out’s to maintaining and evolving American Wagyu.


What is Zabuton Steak?


Zabuton Steak is just one of the names for a Denver cut steak. In Japanese, it means “Little Pillow” because it is so immensely marbled with fat that it is soft & tender. Coming from the chuck part of the beef, this steak is super easy to grill without a lot of effort. The flavor however… intense.
