Meet the Snake River Farms Wagyu Delmonico, one of Zupan’s Markets four Signature Cuts in our meat department.
This steak comes from the premium center of the ribeye and has intense marbling for optimal juiciness and flavor. It is the perfect choice for special occasions or any time you want to make an impression.
Delmonico steak has a long history in the United States. In the 1800’s if you ordered a Delmonico steak you would get whatever the best cut was on that specific night. Today, there are many variations on the Delmonico steak, the main qualification being that it is more than an inch and a half thick and high quality. To create Zupan’s Delmonico steak our butchers cut and trim the 3 muscles that comprise the ribeye and then tie them together, essentially like a roast for a deliciously flavorful steak! Perfect for the grill or pan seared in a cast iron pan.
Our Wagyu Delmonico comes from family-owned Snake River Farms, the premier producer of American Wagyu beef. Snake River Farms beef is coveted by award-winning chefs and served in top-rated restaurants throughout the world. Wagyu beef, also known as American-style Kobe beef, is the result of cross-breeding Japanese Wagyu cattle with continental breeds of cattle. American Wagyu beef is prized because of its intense marbling and high percentage of oleaginous, intramuscular unsaturated fat. The name Kobe is reserved exclusively to describe cattle raised in the Kobe region of Japan. Wagyu cattle raised outside of Kobe must be identified as Wagyu or Kobe-style.
