Is This Wagyu Steak Worth $240?

CNBC Make It.

We tried a 16-ounce, $240 A5 Olive Wagyu rib eye from Crowd Cow, an online meat distributor and the first to import Olive Wagyu to the United States. From the moment we unboxed the steak it was obvious it stood apart from the others, but was it worth $240?

Olive Wagyu gets its name from the toasted olive peels ranchers feed cattle. "Wagyu" literally translates to "Japanese cow" and there are some 300 brands including the most famouys, Kobe.

Olive Wagyu cattle are raised on a small island in Japan called Shodoshima, which is famous for its olive oil. Cattle farmer Masaki Ishii developed the breed as a way to use the by-product of olive oil production as cattle feed.
