What is Hida beef?

We are proud to be chosen by many guests who want to eat delicious hida beef. Representative Director
Hida beef is a delicious, first-class Japanese beef brand that rivals Kobe or Matsuzaka beef.
Hida beef is a brand name given to beef which has meat quality that is classified with the A/B rank and the 5/4/3 grade and which has been raised within Gifu Prefecture.

Hida is cool in the summer and the cold of winter is harsh. Cattle are kept in carefully managed barns over the winter where attention is paid to the health, hygiene and stress levels, etc. of the cattle. In the summer, the cattle roam the extensive lush green farm with its pure water that flows from the mountains and its clear sky – perfect conditions for rearing cattle.

The unique characteristics of Hida beef reared carefully by producer farmers are its fine-grained texture, its tenderness, its marbling which is spread evenly throughout, its clear pale pink colouring and its soft, melting texture. Furthermore, it is not too fatty and therefore can be enjoyed by people of any age from children to the elderly.

So what is different about Seiryu’s Hida beef cuisine?
Let me tell you…

What does the new beef evaluation standard, the melt-in-the-mouth index mean?

「Beef evaluation standard = melt-in-the-mouth index」

口溶け指数 グラフ blogk
  • The A4 and A5 labels are those which are generally used to describe meat quality rank.
  • In other words, the rank is decided by the degree of marbling.
  • However, can this really express the real taste of the meat all by itself?
  • Is it OK to offer Hida beef to our guests just on the basis of these labels?
  • I question the concept of ordinary in the world so I introduced a new Hida beef evaluation standard.
  • This is the melt-in-the-mouth index.
  • <What is the melt-in-the-mouth index?>
  • The melt-in-the-mouth index is a general name for the soft texture when you bite into the meat and the melting of the marbled fat in your mouth.
  • At Seiryu, we taste the Hida beef at the procurement stage
  • and we only use Hida beef that passes the melt-in-the-mouth test established by the head chef.

Enjoy even more delicious Hida beef…

しゃぶしゃぶ Beef cuisine includes many dishes such as sukiyaki (thinly sliced beef cooked in sweet soup at the table), shabu shabu (thinly sliced beef cooked at the table) and steak and it is general practice to change the cut of meat depending on each method of preparation.
Naturally, we select different cuts of Hida beef depending on the method of preparation then we test them because we must single out the best cut for each type of cuisine. For example, if you made a steak out of Hida beef with not much marbling… it would be tough and not very tasty (obviously).

On the other hand, if you made sliced raw beef out of Hida beef with a lot of marbling…
it would be fatty, the precious, marbled Hida beef would feel like too much and it wouldn’t be very tasty.

We want to serve delicious Hida beef to our guests. Therefore, we are very particular about selecting the right cut for the right dish. This is in no way an easy job. However, by being particular about this selection, we are able to serve our guests even more delicious Hida beef.

I am sure you will taste the difference…
