What Is A Wagyu Burger?

Understanding Wagyu and Its Prestige

Originating from Japan, Wagyu refers to specific breeds of beef cattle, including Japanese Black, Japanese Brown, Japanese Polled, and Japanese Shorthorn. These breeds are genetically predisposed to produce beef with a higher content of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids compared to other beef varieties. The unique marbling of fat within the muscle fibers of Wagyu beef gives it a moist, tender texture that melts in your mouth.

While a Wagyu burger might carry a premium price tag compared to one made from Angus beef, the exceptional quality of the meat justifies the cost.

Wagyu Beef in Australia and America

America and Australia boasts the largest Wagyu association outside Japan, encompassing both purebred and crossbred Wagyu cattle. Australian Wagyu cattle are often grain-fed for the final 300-500 days of their rearing, with some producers even incorporating red wine into their feed.

Ribs & Burgers sources its Wagyu beef from Mayura Wagyu, a prestigious beef producer on South Australia’s Limestone Coast. This partnership ensures our Wagyu beef is of the highest quality, with full traceability from farm to table.

While some eateries may claim to offer burgers made with 100% Wagyu beef, at Ribs & Burgers, we guarantee it. Our Australian Wagyu beef is characterized by its fine texture, rich, buttery flavor, and unparalleled tenderness.

Health Benefits of Wagyu Beef

Wagyu beef is considered healthier than other types of beef, provided it’s consumed as part of a balanced diet. It contains up to 30% more monounsaturated fatty acids, which are known to be beneficial for health. Consuming Wagyu beef can also contribute to lower cholesterol levels and is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Recipe Details

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Category: Entrée

Method: Stovetop

Cuisine: American


  • 1 lb. ground wagyu beef
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • Burger condiments like mayo, ketchup, mustard, relish
  • 4 brioche burger buns, split
  • 4 pieces leaf lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, sliced thinly


  1. With the goal of trying to handle the meat as little as possible so as to not make it tough, gently break the raw ground beef up into medium crumbles onto a small sheet pan. Arrange meat in a single layer.
  2. Sprinkle salt and onion powder evenly over crumbled beef.
  3. Using your hands, gently toss the beef to distribute the seasoning.
  4. Form mixture into four equal-sized patties, using as little pressure as possible to compact the beef while still having it hold together well.
  5. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add beef patties and cook for 6 minutes on one side.
  6. Using a spatula, flip patties. Place 1 slice of cheese on top of each patty. Cook 6 minutes more for medium burgers.
  7. To build the burgers, spread any desired condiments onto buns. Then add one piece of lettuce and two slices of tomato to the bottom half of each bun. Place burger patty on top of tomatoes. Top with tops of buns.
