As you can see I’ve tried almost every
single wagyu there is out there but there’s one that I have not tried yet. But that
will end today. This is the olive wagyu experience and we’re going to give
it a try today and let you know how we like it. So let’s do it! After purchasing it from an online
retailer this is the unboxing. This is the olive Wagyu as you saw it it
came with dry ice and it is a hundred percent frozen. As it states on the label
it is olive wagyu A4. Now if you’re wondering it why it’s not a five they do
not have that available. The highest grading you can order is up to A4,
and that’s what I have today. I know you’re gonna ask me for price after all
the discounts were added it comes out to a hundred and seventy-six dollars per
pound. In each one of these steaks cost a hundred and fifty four dollars and fifty
cents. All of these informative flyers came
inside of the box and as some people claim they say that it is the best in
the world and I can’t wait to give it a try. Now just like all frozen steaks the
best way to defrost the steak is to leave it overnight in the refrigerator.
You never want to throw it in water or leaving defrosting at room temperature,
even though that works it’s not the best way to do it.
That will be Frost the steak slowly to keep its maximum quality. To truly
compare that Olive Wagyu taste I placed another order. and as I open the box, oh well this one
is Japanese wagyu A5 but you can see that it is a ribeye. I don’t think you
will even be fair if I use this one. This is the one that we’re gonna compare it
with, and it is a Japanese wagyu A5 New York Strip. Now as far as price I pay
a hundred and sixty six dollars and sixty cents after the discounts. And each
steak cost a hundred and forty-five dollars and fifty cents. So they are
almost the same price but this one is about ten dollars less. After defrosting
them overnight in the refrigerator this is what they look like. As you can see
the marbling of the olive Wagyu is fantastic. It is a little bit oxidized
but if you’ve seen my oxidation experiment video you know that that’s
okay. And just in case you did not see that video yet make sure you check out
our later on. Now just for comparison I also defrosted
the a5 and this is what a marbling of a5 looks like. To my eyes it seems like it’s
more distributed there’s not a huge difference but there is a difference. If
I put them side-by-side you can see that there’s not that much difference in the
marbling I say they both look great. The only huge difference is that the olive
Wagyu is oxidized and the a5 is not. Oxidation usually happens when you
freeze the steak for a long time. Before opening them I wanted to make sure that
they weigh exactly what I paid for. 14.25 ounces 0.89 pounds 403 grams and 0.404 kilos. So the weight is
exactly on point. Then I weighed the Japanese Wagyu A5 14.25 ounces
0.892 pounds 405 grams and 0.405 kilos. They weighed exactly the same. Now all there’s left to do is open these steaks and see
what they look like after I Pat them dry. And I started with the olive Wagyu once
I pat it dry this is what it looks like. As I lift the steak from my board you
can see that it’s slightly breaking and it also has a few holes on it not quite
sure if that’s normal I’ve never seen it before. But it felt very tender
he felt like if I was not careful it was just basically gonna fall apart in my
hands. After handling so many meats I never experienced anything like this but
I was excited to give it a try. Then I jumped right into the Japanese wagyu A5 and I can tell you right away there’s a big difference just opening
one and the other. It’s kind of hard to open this one. It’s tight and the vacuum
does not give now this is crazy it took me about a minute and a half to open
this steak. The vacuum seal is super tight. And when I did this is what it looks
like. Handling one and the other is a
completely different experience. This one does not bend it is a solid piece. As you
can see I can slam it on the board and it will stand upright. One way to
describe it it’s like a brik this thing is just solid. For you to better
understand I try to handle both of them at the same time. As you can see the
olive Wagyu is just like jello and the a5 I’m holding it with one finger in it
does not Bend it is solid completely. different experience and I did not
expect that. When I put them side-by-side this is what they look like But now that you have seen the
comparison of both steaks it is time to season them. To ensure I taste the steak
and nothing else and keeping the seasoning very simple only salt and
freshly ground black pepper. And like always I do season both sides. But now I say it is enough talking it is
time to cook and taste this wonderful steaks so let’s do it! All right we have our beautiful steaks
here. What do you think Angel? W
e have our beautiful wagyus. How do you know is wagyu? Hello! There’s no way you’re not able to tell when you see those kind of fat marbling in between. Is just absolutely ridiculous
and top-notch quality beef. And my mouth is like. Salivating? Yeah I can’t even talk too
much. Alright so Angel we have a little
experiment today. I guess this is a good experiment. I know you I know you like this kind. Or maybe whatever it is you did work or it’s just a very good experiment. True. So we have steak A and
steak B and I want to know which one you like better there’s a different
taste profile and all that good stuff. You ready? You’re not even gonna cut in
half? What? You go ahead you’re going for it? Just like that?
Alright let’s do this together. Cheers! Cheers everybody. Some people ask me does it get
old? No it doesn’t get old at all. That… Is so soft. It’s like perfection of an explosion on your mouth. My goodness! It goes like…
Damn you’re going for the second one Easy dude! This is a tasting steak right
it’s not a steak for you to get full but my nephews here thinks otherwise. I think
very differently as you could tell. How do you think it tastes? It’s amazing.
It’s wagyu bro! oh it is incredible. Can you tell what kind of Wagyu this is? Let’s see how good you are. A5? A5 my brother! He’s good. You can tell everybody once you’ve experienced something like
this it is phenomenal and it is difficult to replicate this kind of
taste. Yeah. You agree with me? Yeah it’s amazing, I’m not gonna lie
it’s probably one of the best steaks. It is! That’s why they charge you so much.
Okay now I wanna try the second one. You ready for it? I don’t know. Can I split it in
half or you… You can split those in half. Dang Angel alright let’s
try the second one. I think this one fell a little bit
harder folding it. It did? when I, cuz I folded this one just like the last one.
Interesting well let me know. I don’t know maybe maybe not. Cheers everybody second one! Amazing just as good hmm That is a nice and wonderful steak. What
do you think Angel? mmm mmm they’re the same though. They’re the same? That’s not a bad
thing, at all. Can you not tell any difference? Not at all? Is exactly the
same for you? Yeah. I kind of uh, hold on we might have to give it a second try
here with a tasting here because this one kind of surprised me a little bit.
Why are you gonna cut. Just get a little piece dude. Not a lot like a little piece because we
by the way we have a little party today I’ve got a lot of people need to try. All
right try that one let’s try it again Angel. That’s so good, so good second one
right away I can’t taste any difference whatsoever if there’s a difference this
difference is like right towards to your palate towards the end just like…
Aftertaste? Yeah there’s a little bit more aftertaste on this one here but not
that it’s a good thing not that I don’t… Which one you like better? You don’t know?
It tastes the same. It tastes the same. Maybe you know what maybe I want to say maybe
this one’s a little bit more fatty. This one is a little bit more fatty? So you
have a little more richness. Yeh. Just a very small amount. The difference is very very
minor is not so much I was expecting something different like a different
kind of beef profile taste, you? I don’t know why you don’t know why I would say
okay so this. I wasn’t expecting much. This is Japanese Wagyu A5
straight from Japan this is this is also straight from Japan but this is the
famous Olive Wagyu. Oh. Olive wagyu Oh that’s what we’re doing. That’s what we are doing. Ok, and it’s also A5. No this is one A4 Okay so I was right no? A little
bit more fatty. Yeah this one is a little bit more fatty in regards to
taste profile I really can’t tell any difference you? If there’s a difference
it’s very very minor. It’s so slightly. And it comes right at the end of getting the flavor.
Like towards the end there’s a little bit of aftertaste of beef.
They are both extremely fatty. Maybe you got you got a look for that you really
got it like… Come over here, we got a lot of people behind the camera that I want to
try come over here. This is miss Kayla you guys all know her already Angel’s
girlfriend. Alright Keya let’s try this. Try that
one first. I like how you go for the bigger piece. Try it!
you tell me how does that taste Kayla Pretty good! You know… You can’t even lie right it’s like yeah
it’s pretty good. so try the second one now we want to know your opinion. Oh this
one’s harder to like press into. Yeah? Maybe I’m not going crazy. There’s a
difference. There’s a difference, okay you tell us. What do you taste? We want to know what is
the difference. Tenderness are they the same? I think the wagyu A5 is more tender. Ok, how about the taste you say its
different for you? Yeah so this one tastes like its more… I do think that they’re both
very similar in taste the only difference is that this one doesn’t have
like a bad…You mean this one here? Yeah the the wagyu A5 doesn’t have a bad
aftertaste whereas this one it’s not bad it’s not about aftertaste but it kind of
tastes like old meat. Like old meat in the end a little bit?
Yeah like after you like while you’re eating it it’s it’s fine it’s great but
after that it’s like. I understand what she’s saying because he has like a
little aftertaste in the end right Angel. It’s like a little after taste not crazy
big. No, no, no. Yeah but he has a little aftertaste that is kind of weird but this is a
phenomenal steak. I said that what do you think? I think it has the aftertaste but
you have to look for it you have got to have an acquired taste
for me. You have you have a very acquired taste or you gotta be picky and be looking
for something. Yeah you know if you’re looking like we’re judging one side by
side but if you eat this steak by itself you probably won’t be able to tell the aftertaste at all. But since we’re putting one next to the other yeah you know the
aftertaste is there. You agree Kayla? Yeah Okay now we have to judge. Angel pick a
winner A or B this one’s more fatty I’m going
for this. Fatty is always better I agree Kayla which one just by the taste I like
A better. I like the A this one as well, this is the a5. I hope you guys get
a chance to experience both see which one you guys like best I stick with an
a5. You? I go A5 man I’m sorry. Kayla? yeah same Will stick with the A5 so these are the results. I
