ALDI’S blockbuster Wagyu steak is back in stores this week.
The steak, which is being sold in two varieties, is inspired by one of the most expensive cuts of beef in the world.
Aldi is selling the posh Wagyu steaks in sirloin and ribeye cuts for the bargain price of £7.99 each for 227 grams.
Which works out as £3.53 per 100 grams – nearly 900 per cent cheaper than at Harrods Steakhouse which sells Wagyu sirloin steak for £35 per 100 grams.
The products are inspired by the Japanese Kobe Wagyu, which sells for up to an eye watering £500 a kilo.
The supermarket says the ribeye cut offers the boldest flavour, as it comes from between the rib bones of the bull and is marbled with more fat than most steaks.
Whereas the sirloin cut is slightly denser with a smaller proportion of fat, but is just as flavoursome.
Both cuts of meat are best cooked on a high heat either on a BBQ or in frying pan.
Savvy bargain hunters might want to get their skates on as they Specialbuy steaks have sold out quickly when they have previously been on sale.
Over the years, the price of the posh steaks at Aldi has slightly increased – when first offered in 2016 the steaks cost £7.29 each.
