Discover the stellar sensation of our Wagyu 8 oz. Hanging Tender Steak. Often referred to as the "butcher's secret," this cut is cherished for its rich, full-bodied flavor and delectably tender texture. A hidden gem among beef cuts, the Hanging Tender is a culinary constellation all its own.

Historically, the Hanging Tender, also known as the hanger steak or onglet in French cuisine, was often kept by butchers for their own tables because of its unmatched flavor. This cut "hangs" from the diaphragm of the cow, near the kidney, and it's this unique location that imparts a rich, savory taste. The Hanging Tender is a secret delight that can outshine the more prominent cuts when given the chance to shine.

The Pleiades cluster, also known as the "Seven Sisters," comprises several stars too dim to be seen with the naked eye, much like the Hanging Tender's subtle yet impressive flavor that can be missed in favor of more prominent cuts. But when discovered, both offer a truly unique and rewarding experience.
