    Default Anyone like Japanese Wagyu beef?

    I only wish we had a Costco here locally. Oh well, I guess I could just order it online. Not! I'd bet that it would melt in your mouth.

    That's a touch on the pricey side for me. But if you order some I'll be sure to make it down to help you sample it

    Wow, We could have one hell of a party for just the price of that meat!

    Incredible Marbling though.

    With all that marbling - that steer must have died of a heart attack before it was butchered! LOL

    I've had Wagyu beef. I don't know if it was Jap or American ( I tend to think American). I wasn't at all impressed. The meat wasn't all that tender, and there was just really too much fat.

    Kobe beef is produced from Wagyu cattle. but it is much more than just Wagyu beef. The feeding, care and whole production process is special. I've never had Kobe beef, but for that kind of $ it would have to be one heckuva bunch better than the Wagyu I've had.

    You have to try that beef. there is a spot in NYC that specializes in Kobe. even raw its incredible. tho i dont recommend eating raw meat. The Travel Channel did a show on Steak Paradise. I forget the name of the place but my cousins tell me that one is WAY better then the Kobe Club where we went.

    I recommend eating raw beef. Carpaccio and steak tartar are excellent fare. I wouldn't eat raw ground beef unless I ground ut myself or knew who did though.

    I would like to try Kobe beef, but I don't think I'll waste any more $ on Wagyu stuff unless it is Kobe. It's prolly not in the cards though because I'm quite sure that I'll never vidit New York City unless it's at gunpoint, and then, I doubt my hosts will be wanting to take me out for gourmet food.

    A local cash and carry grocery store that supplies smaller resteraunts with their meat has New York Steaks for $3.75 a pound, boneless ribeye for $5.45 a pound. Yeah you have to buy a 12-14 pound hunk of meat, but then you can THICK cut it up into 1.5" thick steaks or thin slice it 1/4" however you like.

    New yorks at $3.45 a pound, YUM, really nice cut of meat, I also like spencer steaks. Used to love rib-eyes but as I said, almost TOO much marbeling
    You only cut your steaks 1.5" thick?
