The Great American Land and Cattle Co. to Serve Prized Akaushi!
The Great American Land and Cattle Co., 701 S. Mesa Hills, El Paso, TX will begin serving Akaushi beef in its restaurant next week. The beef is impeccable, said Cris Green, owner of the Sunland Park Great American. The cuts contain intense marbling. "This beef has a much higher percentage of monounsaturated fat so that means the flavor is buttery and it is amazingly tender," Green said. Green and his staff also are working to perfect the cooking of this beef. "Due to the fine marbling of the steaks, we recommend cooking them at medium temperatures. Then you can enjoy its unique texture and flavor," Green said. The restaurant would begin by serving Akaushi ribeye and hamburgers, but plan to add more cuts in the near future.

Kudos for Akaushi Found on Flickr
A Flickr member gave rave reviews to Chef Garrelts' Akaushi Wagyu Flatiron stating "It is spectacular. I understand that he has come up with a way to roll and cut it like a filet, which makes a more tender cut. Indeed, it was. And, the meat was nothing short of blissful. I've seen this cut of meat raw, and the marbling is unbelievable. Eating this cut and preparation of Akaushi makes you think twice about the way beef should taste."

Vail Restaurant 'Steaks' a Claim on Akaushi Cattle
When Kyle Cowan, Executive Chef at Vail's Up The Creek, serves an Akaushi flatiron steak, he’s likely to make a show of not bringing a steak knife. And it’s true, there’s no need for one. Tender and succulent, it’s redundant to describe it as meaty — but it’s just that, on an elemental, almost primal, level. The article states "it’s the flavor and quality of the meat that’s going to push it to the forefront of dietary choices. And despite all the options out there, red meat seems eternally popular. Why? “Beef. Fire. Caveman — come on. It’s how we originated,” exclaimed Cowan. “It’s natural. And I want the best beef from people who don’t rush their cattle.”"

Texas Can Lay Claim to Top Beef Cattle - from Japan
The San Antonio Express-News says it's not snobbery that makes people willing to pay up to $200 for an Akaushi steak at certain East Coast restaurants, or that induces others to pay $45 retail for the same 14-ounce rib-eye. To true believers, an Akaushi is the tastiest and healthiest steak one can buy. Jay Gray who manages the feedlot in Gonzales where the Akaushi are fattened up states "This beef is totally different. It makes what we're used to eating seem rather mundane. It's the best steak I've ever eaten, and I've eaten some." The article goes on to say "... according to scientists at Texas A&M, that's neither hype nor imagination. Simply put, besides commanding top dollar, a juicy, heavily marbled Akaushi steak ranks far higher than the best American beef in healthy fats and lower in unhealthy saturated fats.

"There's a genetic predisposition in those cattle to put on a softer fat that's high in oleic acid and monounsaturated fats," said Stephen Smith, a biochemist and meat specialist at A&M, one of two centers of study of Japanese cattle in the United States.

"It really is counterintuitive. People think more fat means higher in saturated fat. But the more monounsaturated fat in the beef, the more benefits you get, and the beef with the highest levels is Japanese," he said.""

Smart Beef
Parade Magazine highlighted Akaushi beef in their feature called "5 Surprising Facts About Food". They wrote: "If your yen for steak is ruined by fears of clogged arteries, try Akaushi (Aka-oshee) beef. This high-quality meat comes from Japanese cattle bred in the U.S. It is rich in monounsaturated fat and oleic acid—the same “good fats” found in olive oil, which don’t harm the heart. Akaushi beef (below) has an incredibly rich flavor without the saturated fat. Best of all: It is served in some of the top steakhouses across the nation."

Mmmm... Akaushi Beef
That's what the crowd of over 600 were saying at the luncheon at the South Texas Farm & Ranch Show in Victoria, Texas. During the luncheon Dr. Calles spoke about the unique health benefits of Akaushi cattle and their potential to improve the cattle industry. The Victoria Advocate covered the event "Akaushi cows produce the beef of the future. Such is the claim of Dr. Jose Antonio Elias Calles, president of HeartBrand Beef, who was the keynote luncheon speaker at the South Texas Farm and Ranch Show on Thursday.

"When you have a positive ratio, more good fat than bad fat, it has tremendous benefits for the human body," he said. The ratio in Akaushi beef, when raw, is 80 percent lean and 20 percent fat, that fat produces monounsaturated fats that lower bad cholesterol."

Enjoy the Good Life with HeartBrand Beef
HeartBrand Beef is proud to announce that they have been included in the Cigar Aficionado's Good Life Guide. Their upcoming 15th Anniversary Issue (issue date October 2007) includes a fabulous page discussing the excellent quality and health benefits of HeartBrand's Akaushi: "Whatever the name, the product is phenomenally good. You expect flavor from the rib eye, but the cuts that astound you with their savor are the lesser ones such as the flank steak and the overly lean ones like the "chick" steak: filet mignon. Akaushi is not cheap, so it's a welcome surprise that the lowly hamburger is one of the finest choices. Bon appétit, America." Pick up a copy today to read all about us.

A Rare Breed Indeed
HeartBrand Beef introduced Akaushi cattle to Texas to revolutionize the cattle industry. What makes the Akaushi different than other exotic breeds brought the the United States? Dr. Calles states "It is healthier due to its unique fatty acid composition when compared to domestic beef. The meat is very tender, juicy and flavorful and it is considered by the Japanese and many beef experts to be the most palatable, and yet healthy, beef in the world." He goes on to state " The beauty of the Akaushi, Calles said, is that he doesn’t have to identify genes for tenderness and genes for marbling. Those traits have already been instilled in the breed through over 100 years of carefully controlled breeding programs and intensive research in Japan.

"The breed has been engineered in a closed-end system with no exposure to any other cattle genes for over 100 years, selecting for the palatability trait for years and years," Calles said. "The animals that were not uniform and consistent over the years, they were eliminated at some point.

"So if we feed the animals properly, manage the animals properly, 100 percent of the time they will produce the same. It is amazing."

Here's the Beef: Akaushi Beef
Akaushi Beef made an appearance in the San Francisco Chronicle - with excellent reviews from food department tasters. Their comments? "It seems to embody all qualities, even contrary ones. It's beautifully marbled (fatty), but it's healthy. How? Because the kind of fat in the meat comes from the grass diet of the steers. It's supposedly high in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) and oleic acid as well as monounsaturated fat (you thought it was only in olive oil and peanut oil?) which, the company claims, can lower cholesterol."

First, it was the Kobe beef craze. Now, a new style of Japanese beef has made its way into restaurants. It's called Akaushi beef, and it is noted for its deep marbling. Though it is illegal to import beef from Japan, the cattle is being raised and sold in Texas. You can find it locally at Bohanan's Prime Steaks and Seafood, 219 E. Houston St.
The restaurant offers entrées with a New York strip, a rib-eye or a filet mignon, of Akaushi beef, for $95. None of the items is listed on the menu. They are sold by servers, who are apparently doing a good job, because about 200 steaks are sold monthly, a spokeswoman says.
