Aldi’s popular wagyu ribeye and sirloin steaks are back

On Thursday 23rd November, discount supermarket Aldi will be bringing back one of the most expensive steak cuts in the world1, for only £7.99! The Specially Selected Wagyu Sirloin Steak and Specially Selected Wagyu Ribeye Steak proved so popular when they were on sale earlier this year, selling out in just two days.

Taking their name from the famous Japanese Kobe Wagyu, which can sell for up to £500 a kilo in Japan,  the meat is renowned for its distinctive marbling of fat which melts while it cooks, making for a super succulent, tender, melt-in-the-mouth steak.

Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, said: “We are committed to offering unique and premium quality at everyday low prices and our Wagyu steaks, which are sourced from some of the finest producers in New Zealand, are the perfect example of this.”

The Ribeye cut comes from between the rib bones of the bull and is marbled with more fat than most steaks, meaning it offers the boldest flavour. Whilst equally full-of-flavour, the Sirloin cut is slightly denser with a smaller proportion of fat. Both are best cooked on a high heat on a BBQ or frying pan.
