Washugyu(TM) New York Strip Steaks, Set of 2

Taken from the short loin, between the ribeye and the filet, the New York steak (or strip steak) offers a middle ground in marbling, while still being a tender, highly flavorful cut. These Kobe-style steaks, from Oregon-based Yamaya, have a higher percentage of unsaturated fat, which melts at a lower temperature to give the meat a buttery texture and rich, full beef taste. Two hand-cut 1"-thick steaks; 12 oz. each. Shipped fresh. Product of USA.

Don't expect quality

I got this today, The NYStrips are extremely thin so you can either over cook them to make the fat edible or cook them correctly to a medium rare which does not allow the fat enough cooking time so you will have to discard it. Shame for such an expensive item - they did not butcher it correctly.. I would have rather had one steak that was thicker than two skinny pieces. Also the marbling is not even close to the image they provided. Very disappointed.
I understand reviews can be dishonest so I have attached images for reference.
Cons: Disappointing, Amount, cut thin

I agree
I also bought their beef. I have had Koba beef, and this is no where near that. I was so let down. I did find a great butcher here near where I live, His beef was 100times better. I will not buy again.

TY For the Warning
I have been looking for a nice cut of meat from various places for a meal for a family members birthday, after seeing those photos I don't care what the sale prices are I could do better down the road at the local markets.
Thanks for saving me the disappointment.

I agree that is a shame. The pictures you shared say it all. The marbling is that of a very low prime or high choice grade at best.

What a shame.
Too bad that your experience with this was at this level. There is so much good domestic Wagyu beef available now at much more affordable prices directly from the ranchers/producers. Maybe branch out and find one that will butcher to your specs. Considering the price point here, I am sure you can find one that will accomodate you.
