We all like to treat ourselves to a special dinner now and then.

And nothing says a special meal like a slap-up steak dinner.

Whether we book a nice restaurant for an evening out, or we do our best to cook steak at home and maybe even whip up a homemade steak sauce too, it’s generally a dinner we reserve for treat days or special occasions.

Partly because of the effort it takes to make sure we cook it just right, but also because it’s not always the most cost-effective weeknight dinner.

But now one supermarket is bringing you one of the best cuts of meat in the world – and it’s designed to be used with one of your go-to weeknight meals.

Always on hand to bring the best deals, budget supermarket Aldi is bringing back its sellout meatballs that are made from one of the most expensive meats in the world – wagyu beef.

Wagyu beef is known the world over for being a staple in high-priced fine dining restaurants because of its tender, melt-in-the-mouth texture and strong flavour that comes from the fat that's delicately marbled throughout the meat.

In places across the world, particularly in Japan where the beef is originally from, the prized meat can sell for up to £500 a cut. But our reliable bargain grocer is selling it for a whole lot less so you can have a chance to try your hand at cooking this meaty marvel.

Aldi’s Specially Selected Beef Wagyu Meatballs are made with meat from cattle bred in New Zealand and they are the only cattle herd in the world to be certified 100 per cent grass fed, which Aldi say give the meatballs a rich, sweet and nutty flavour.

You can get your hands on the indulgent treat for only £3.49 for 12 meatballs, but they’re not available on the store’s website so you will have to head down to your local branch for a packet.

They’re available in Aldi stores across the country, but you’ll have to be quick because they’re a Specialbuy so once they’re gone, they’re gone!
