Oh Kobe You’re So Fine…

THIS is where it’s at.

Or so I’ve heard.

You see, I haven’t actually had the pleasure of immersing myself in a Kobe steak yet.

I think it’s because I get stuck in my ways. When I eat a steak I end up cooking my go-to cut.

And, I guess I just haven’t gotten around to trying Kobe. It’s just inertia, really.

I’ve heard such amazing things about it you’d think I would have rushed out and tried it.

I’ve heard about its incredible marbling, flavor and tenderness. This photo is of boneless ribeye. Mmmm.

I should treat myself. Okay, I will. Yeah, thanks for the encouragement!


Have YOU tried it? If you have, is it the only steak you’ll eat now?

Wagyu Kobe Beef – Oh My!

So, this stuff is truly high quality. It’s for serious, serious beef lovers. Luckily, that’s me!

And YOU – if you’re reading this! *wink*

The story goes that there is a specific line of Wagyu cattle bred in Kobe, Japan, that is out-of-this-world tender. There are all sorts of stories (possibly tall tales) about them being brushed several times a day by their handlers and being fed a fine quality beer daily.

I don’t know about all that, but I do know that this beef has been a delicacy for many, many years. Someone was bright enough to bring some of the line over to the U.S. to breed it here. And the rest was history.

My fave place, Kansas City Steak Company, now has this Wagyu American Kobe beef so now I can enjoy it at home rather than some steak joint where they won’t have my Teriyaki sauce.

Hey, that’s the way I like it and it’s my house.

I cannot wait to get my hands on a Kobe ribeye. The intense marbling is what makes these steaks so tender and flavorful. Really, a higher stratosphere of quality. Just what a steak lover is always looking for.

You can click here to see their selection and try some for yourself. Take pictures and let me know how your experience is!

And if you’re in the giving mood this holiday season, these babies make quite an impressive gift.

My mouth is watering now just thinking about it . . .
