“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment

The provider of the American Made Wagyu Beef Jerky knew from the time that she was 16 that she wanted to own a bar. She along with her partner who has been in the industry since he was 17, own the Cowboy Star Restaurant and Butcher Shop in San Diego and Colorado Springs. Their restaurant is known for their impeccable products and highest quality of ingredients. They work alongside Chef Victor Jiminez who is the creator of the Wagyu Beef Jerky. He attended Le cordon Bleu in France and specializes in Contemporary American with a Western Flare.

In search of the best ingredients, the owners of the Cowboy Star selected Snake River Farms for the supplier of their beef. They are known for their humane treatment of the animals, and their quality products. Only the finest ingredients are used for the production of the American Wagyu Beef Jerky. Snake River Farms beef is known for their buttery complex flavors, subtle sweetness, and a lingering finish. American Wagyu beef is prized because of its intense marbling and the high percentage of oleaginous, intramuscular, unsaturated fat. It comes from the same region as Kobe Beef but is not raised in Kobe.

Originally the American Wagyu Beef Jerky was sold at the Cowboy Star Restaurant, but is now packaged so that I can enjoy it at home also. The jerky is softer than other varieties of jerky that I have tried and you can absolutely tell that it is higher quality steakhouse jerky. I have never had anything like this before and it is definitely a luxury product. The seasonings on the jerky are mouth watering delicious and you can taste the western influence. The beef used to make it is hormone free, gluten free, has zero preservatives, no nitrates, and no hormones.

American Made Wagyu Beef Jerky is unlike anything that I have had before. I love being able to experience a little bit of the Cowboy Star without having to visit, and take a little bit of their steakhouse home with me. This is a great product for any meat lover to try.
