Holy Grail Steak Co. Launches, Sells World’s ‘Rarest’ Steaks

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.— Those who truly know ultra-premium steak know that the only place to get it is at a high-end steak house. Not anymore. Now, the most sought-after beef on the planet—authentic Japanese Kobe Beef along with a portfolio of steaks heretofore available exclusively to high-end steak houses—is for the first time available direct to consumers online at Holy Grail Steak Co.

The brainchild of wine magnate Cameron Hughes, Holy Grail Steak Co. is perched at the very top of the beef supply chain. Hughes spent the last several years with one goal in mind: procure the world’s greatest steaks. The result is a one-stop steak nirvana that delivers a never-before-available portfolio of world-class steaks right to your doorstep. Not only is it the exclusive online source of authentic Kobe for North America, but also of other extremely high-end Japanese Wagyu farms and brands including Omi Beef, HidaGyu and Mr. Hughes’ personal favorite: the rare Japanese Hokkaido “Snow Beef ” from Chateau Uenae. Combined with rest of the portfolio, which includes American-raised Wagyu, USDA “Upper” Prime Black Angus, American-raised Akaushi Wagyu and Australian-raised Wagyu, this is simply the best steak money can buy.

Those with refined wine palettes often refer to a wine’s “terroir”—the distinctive flavor profile that is tied to the physical qualities of its specific place of origin. Similarly, the lineage, feeding protocols and husbandry of a cattle herd and the geography of its farm yields noticeable variations in fat marbling, flavor, texture and mouthfeel.

“Having traveling to vineyards, farms and ranches across the globe, it’s plain to see—and taste—that lineage, terroir and nurture combine to create excellence, whether in the bottle or on the grill,” says Mr. Hughes, founder of Holy Grail Steak Co. “We work only with best-in-class producer partners to offer incredibly high-quality steaks including the most comprehensive assortment of Wagyu on the planet.”

All Holy Grail beef is from the finest genetic lines, fed the best-quality diets and raised with unsurpassed husbandry protocols. Hormone and antibiotic-free, they are butchered and immediately blast frozen to -30°F to protect and preserve the steaks in their original, perfectly-aged state. Each of the Holy Grail steaks is a deliciously rich experience and satisfying meal for two to three people. For more information, please visit
