There are so many different types and cuts of beef, how can you tell the difference? Here is a quick tip you can use to impress your friends about the difference between American Washugyu and Natural Angus Beef. It is important to understand that these types are both born and raised within the United States. Originating from Scotland and then brought to the U.S. in the 1870s, the Angus breed has become the most popular breed with a rich heritage. On the other hand, originating from Japan and brought to the U.S. in 1975, American Washugyu cattle are crossbred between Japanese Wagyu and a high-quality continental breed, making it a grade of 99.99% USDA PRIME or higher!
