Food news: Wagyu beef now available at Aldi
Go highbrow with your burger this Friday for less with ALDI. Their new British Wagyu Burgers cost just £2.99 for two; the supermarket says other retailers can charge as much as £12.95.
Available from Thursday January 30, the posh burgers have been a hit in past summers, previously priced at £3.49. The supermarket first made Wagyu meat accessible to everyone in 2016.
Wagyu beef is also ideal paired with salad and homemade chips, if you want dinner the Slimming World way. Their ‘burger in a bowl’ midweek treat recommends adding the Super SW Sauce, plus salad. This includes:
3 level tbsp extra-light mayonnaise
5 tbsp fat-free fromage frais
1 level tbsp American-style mustard
2 tbsp tomato purée
2 tsp white wine vinegar
½ tsp garlic salt
¼ tsp onion granules
¼ tsp sweet smoked paprika
Aldi’s Wagyu beef supplier and Chairman of the British Wagyu Society, Jim Bloom, said: “I’m very excited about the launch of British Wagyu burgers into Aldi. The cows are reared on our farm in Yorkshire and thanks to its high marbling score, it is comparable to Kobe Wagyu.
“British Wagyu is set to be the next big thing in the meat industry and it’s very exciting that customers will be able to try our high-calibre Wagyu beef at such an affordable price.”
