A British supermarket has started selling an exclusive hybrid beef made with Japanese “wagyu” at low prices following a three-year breeding program.

The beef, made from a mixture of wagyu and Holstein cow breeds, has been selling at select Asda stores since Wednesday for £23 ($36) per kilogram for sirloin cuts, against about £155 per kg, the price at which pure wagyu retails in Japan, and for around £180 per kilogram in London’s top-class stores, Asda said.
