Sliced thinly, ideal for Shabu Shabu or Hotpot. Shabu-shabu is a Japanese nabemono hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water. The food is cooked piece by piece at the dinner table.
Note: Discoloration may occur due to layering which is normal due to oxidation. Meat is suitable to consume up to 3 days after production date, otherwise freeze it if not sure when you want to consume it. Best practice for freezing is up to 6 months and shabu shabu will still be delicious after freezing and defrosting. We've tried it!

Stockyard Beef Wagyu
For centuries, the Japanese kept their Wagyu genetics under tight control, not releasing them to the world until the late 20th century. Wagyu beef cattle are now being bred and farmed in Australia to meet the international demand for this wonderfully succulent and tender beef. Since 1994, Stockyard has been Australia’s leading exporter of Wagyu beef. Stockyard sources Wagyu feeders from its own breeding program and through strong alliances with professional Wagyu breeding operations. Stockyard Wagyu beef is derived from animals with genetics from Crossbred Wagyu F1 50% to Wagyu Fullblood 100%. The cattle are fed in their feedlot on a diet exclusively designed and managed by our nutritionist. Stockyard Wagyu are independently graded and processed under strict supervision to ensure production and quality specifications are met.
WX by Rangers Valley
DAYS ON FEED (360) All WX by Rangers Valley cattle are allowed to develop naturally and are fed slowly over 360 days. This slow feeding process ensures a natural growth rate, maximising the natural marbling found in Wagyu cross plus consistency and an outstanding flavour.
MARBLE SCORE SYSTEM Our marble score is graded under the strict guidelines of industry body Aus-Meat. This means a well-established and benchmarked consistency that’s independently assessed. See the table on the left to discover which colours to look for on pack.
PARENTAGE 100% Wagyu sire is crossed with a dam chosen from a range of breeds for genetic superiority, environmental adaptability and ancestral marbling; rather than breed alone. Our breeding partners works with nature to deliberately and artfully choose from the best available animal for each season, resulting in WX offspring – handchosen and unique.
HGP FREE In keeping with the Rangers Valley slow growth philosophy, our WX products are also HGP (hormone growth promotant) free. Instead, our cattle develop naturally without the assistance of added hormones. We believe this natural approach plays a major role in the extremely high eating quality of WX products.
