How I Can Afford To Feed My Family Wagu Beef

Wagu beef dinner plus money in your bank account? Yes it’s possible!  My Partner and I love a good steak but usually a nice cut of beef is just out of our price range.  That was until I came across First Light Wagu Beef at Farros.


Wagu beef has beautiful marbled fat and a rich nutty taste that makes it a pleasure to eat.  At Farros you can buy skirt steak or tri-tip (bottom of the sirloin) which both make excellent steaks.  I bought 1.3kg for NZD48 and portioned it into five meals which means I can feed the two of us for just under NZD10 per meal which is pretty affordable.  We usually slice it up and add it to stir-frys, make philly steak sammies or pan fry it and have it with salad.  To make the most of your wagu I suggest leaving it uncovered in the fridge to age for a few days.

If you would like to try some of this amazing beef I suggest going onto the first light website and checking out where your nearest store is. After all, is there anything more fabulous than Wagu?
