  • 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 hope you guys enjoyed this video if you
  • do enjoy this video make sure you give it a thumbs up if you're not a
  • subscriber be sure to subscribe for future videos. Remember if you're
  • interested in anything I use everything is always on the description down below.

  • everybody bye bye. and if you ever tried olive wagyu let
  • me know in the comments below how was your experience. I love to know because
  • we're used to this one this one is good as well they're both good man. I eat them both
  • Hey no complaint. It's not a problem I have no issue with either one.

As it is thin I recommend grilling it in super high heat (Direct Heat) if you don't you will over cook the steak as you are searing it.
