Waygu Beef, Really?

Querencia | Apr 23, 2014 01:44 PM

Does anyone happen to know about this? Today at the new Mariano's in Edgewater I bought a pound of what was labeled "Waygu Beef", ground, for $5.99, same price as ground sirloin---the butcher said the Waygu has a better flavor so I took that one. Made a nice meatloaf. Then looked it up online and Waygu beef is supposed to sell for hundreds of dollars. Doesn't add up. I wonder if this is NOT- Waygu or else Mariano's is running quite a loss leader.
