WAGYU Rump Steak
from Upper Austrian Fullblood-Wagyu (BMS 9-12)
Currently out of stock
The Rump Steak from Austrian Wagyu cattle is an incredible delicacy. Matured for a long time and with the highest possible marbling, the meat is butter-tender and highly intense in flavour. This makes the popular steak classic an exquisite premium steak for real gourmets.
The Rump Steak is the somewhat leaner alternative to the rib-eye steak and comes from the lower part of the cattle's back. The flat roast beef, so to speak. It matures directly on the bone of the back and is protected by a fat cover. This is how the characteristic aroma develops.
Thanks to the short fibres, this steak is very soft and juicy. If you like, you can eat it with the fat cover or remove it before or after preparation.
Alongside the big three - the lung roast, T-bone steak and Entrecote (Eib-Eye Steak) - the Rump Steak is one of the absolute steak classics from beef and enjoys great popularity.
How to make Rump Steak an absolute delight
Easy preparation, great taste
What makes a Rump Steak from Fitmeat so special? That's right, the wonderful fat rim. This can be removed as desired, but should remain intact for frying or grilling.
Simply cut into it at regular intervals and you've won. This technique cuts the tendon below the fat cover and the meat is cooked evenly without bulging.
The Rump Steak from Wagyu cattle
Our Rump Steak comes from Austrian Wagyu cattle and is offered in the highest possible marbling grade (BMS 9 - 12). A fantastic meat texture that makes the steak melt in your mouth.
The intramuscular fat acts as a kind of flavour enhancer and leaves an absolutely fascinating sensation in the mouth. With a BMS of 9 - 12, the rump steak is clearly a noble cut from the top league.
In combination with a distinct aroma that develops through the high movement, the steaks are the dream for all barbecue fans
Wagyu beef vs. Kōbe beef
What is the difference now?
Meat from Wagyu cattle has become an absolute hype that has now established itself worldwide. Thus, Wagyu has practically overtaken Kōbe beef. Interestingly, however, it is virtually the same.
Kōbe beef is basically nothing more than a subcategory of Wagyu beef. Similar to sparkling wine, which can only be called Champagne if it comes from the Champagne region, the same applies to Kōbe. Only cattle from special Japanese Kōbe regions are given this designation.
How the Wagyu got its marbling
In Japan, Wagyus were used for a long time purely as livestock. The focus was always on their resistance to stress. To achieve a certain endurance, the animals developed so-called "low-twitch muscle fibres" over time.
This enabled them to gain energy from fat deposits. At the same time, the absolute uniqueness of Wagyu beef developed, namely its incredibly strong marbling, which causes culinary wow effects all over the world.
What does Wagyu meat taste like?
The rump steak of Wagyu beef in BMS 9 - 12 is already an exclusive delicacy for real gourmets. The meat is fabulously tender and almost melts in your mouth. On the tongue, you get a taste explosion of the best flavours together with a meat consistency that was previously unknown. Since fat is a flavour carrier or enhancer, it should be clear that this is a particularly delicate treat.
The exclusive Wagyu beef from Austria
The better Kobe beef
At Fitmeat you get first-class premium meat from Austrian Wagyu beef in the highest marbling grade. With a BMS of 9 - 12, there is simply nothing better.
Compared to Japanese Kōbe beef, our Wagyu cattle grow up on a beautiful smallholding in the Salzkammergut region. There, Carina and Roland breed 100% purebred Fullblood Black Wagyu cattle.
The outstanding characteristics of the Wagyu, or rather the intramuscular fat, the short fibres and the high amount of glutamic acid, meet here with the best and most careful breeding. Free range, exclusively natural feed and slow rearing guarantee the best quality.

Herkunft und Haltung
At Fitmeat, the highest quality and species-appropriate animal husbandry are top priorities. That is why 100% of the animals come from small farmers in Austria. The farms are located in the Waldviertel, Lower Austria, Salzburg and neighbouring Upper Austria
Our classic Wagyu cattle breed is the so-called Fullblood Black Wagyu cattle from the Salzkammergut region. It is very important to us that the animals are born and raised by small farmers
As we distance ourselves from long transport routes and factory farming, we have the animals respectfully slaughtered individually by our partner butchers in the immediate vicinity of the farms (max. 15 minutes transport distance) or directly on the farm.
We also have close and personal contact with the farmers and work exclusively with butchers who know both farmer and animal personally. Our master butchers cut each animal into the finest parts and let them mature selectively
In this way, we obtain first-class and well-hung meat that does not lose water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
