Triple T’s Experts Explain How You Can Lock in the Flavor
American Wagyu beef has captured the admiration of meat lovers worldwide.

However, you can enjoy this delicacy in the comfort of your own home, thanks to Triple T Ranch. Our South Alabama ranch ships authentic American Wagyu beef across the United States. We’re often asked about the best ways to store American Wagyu beef by customers buying it in bulk. Keep reading to get helpful storage tips from our experts and reach out with any additional questions.
How Long Can American Wagyu Beef Last in Your Fridge?
Triple T Ranch ships many popular cuts of American Wagyu beef, ranging from ground beef to brisket, roasts, ribs, tenderloins, and steaks. We vacuum-seal our temperature-controlled packaging for the best results. While the items are shipped frozen, some thawing during shipping is normal and usually not an issue. It’s generally safe to store raw or unfrozen American Wagyu beef inside your refrigerator for up to five days. We suggest storing your meat in the coldest spot and on the lowest shelf in an airtight package. It’s best to keep the meat separate from other items in your fridge to prevent cross-contamination, especially if your family has any known food allergies.
Is It Better to Freeze American Wagyu Beef?
Refrigerator storage is ideal if you plan to consume your American Wagyu beef within the week. However, many customers are interested in having it shipped in bulk to save it for special occasions. You can freeze American Wagyu beef for up to a year, and it should stay juicy as long as you freeze it right. You’ll want to freeze it as quickly as possible using vacuum-sealed packaging to reduce the risk of freezer burn. We recommend placing it as far back inside your freezer away from the door, perhaps in the center of the bottom shelf. Ideally, you should have a special freezer for your meats that you won’t be opening and closing daily. This helps you retain the flavor and the beef’s natural juices longer.
Is It Safe to Refreeze American Wagyu Beef?
Perhaps rainy weather has canceled your family barbecue plans, or you’ve had to change the date of your special event for any number of reasons. As long as your meat hasn’t been completely thawed, it should be safe to refreeze it using vacuum-sealed packaging.
What’s the Best Way to Thaw American Wagyu Beef?
Properly thawing your American Wagyu beef is just as important as storing it. We recommend giving it plenty of time to thaw in your refrigerator. Keep it inside your airtight packaging, but move it from the freezer to the fridge about 48 hours before you plan on cooking it. You’ll want to ensure the meat’s packaging has no holes or punctures. If you need to thaw it in a hurry, place the airtight packaging inside a cold-water bath and let it slowly defrost.
You never want to run it under hot water or try to microwave it to defrost it. American Wagyu beef should be at room temperature before you begin seasoning and prepping it. Due to its natural juices and flavor richness, American Wagyu beef may only require a dash of salt and pepper as seasoning. Get additional cooking tips in our blogs.
