Miyazakigyu Wagyu beef rib lifters come from the Miyazaki Prefecture on southern Japan’s Kyushu Island. Often referred to as lifter meat, blade meat, or wedge meat, the Miyazakigyu Wagyu rib lifter is a flavorful, textured cut that comes from the rib primal. It’s the thin wedge muscle that surrounds the rib section (the outer working muscle of the ribeye area) and is most comparable to a brisket. It needs to be trimmed, as it comes with the fat cap intact. This A5 cut is great for marinating and center-plate steaks, and it’s the pièce de résistance when added to your favorite recipe!
