Not me! My lotto numbers didn't match this week & that's the only way I'll ever be able to afford something like that .

Yep - when it's on sale and still 20 dollars per pound...what I don't understand is the use of the phrase Kobe-style. In what way? (Not that I've ever actually HAD Kobe beef!)

I was at a steakhouse in Vegas last night and the "special" was Kobe steaks. You could get a Kobe Sampler of 3 oz Kobe Filet, 3 oz Kobe Strip and 3 oz Kobe filet for a mere $240! Holy Cow! Literally!

I would get a twofer if I bought that. A lot of meat and instant bachelorhood.

not paying that much for "Kobe-style". The real Kobe beef live a life of luxury... personal baths and massages throughout the day - that's what leads to the superior and finer fat distribution (at least according to the Japanese who rear them).

I've had Kobe beef a couple of times. I highly recommend it.





As long as someone else is picking up the tab, which was the case for me both times.

That's a bit pricey for Wagyu...perhaps not for "true" Kobe though...

The term "American Style Kobe Beef" is often refers to beef from a U.S. raised wagyu/angus cross-breed.

Wagyu beef means beef from several breeds of wagyu cattle originally from Japan.

The term "Kobe Beef" specifically means that it's beef from wagyu cattle raised in Kobe, Japan via a process which includes massages, a special diet, etc. (I suspect a lot of places throw around the term Kobe Beef when it's not, like calling sparkling wine "Champagne.")

Think of Kobe Beef as a brand of beef, like "Certified Angus Beef", rather than a breed. "American Style Kobe Beef" is also a brand, and I think that is what was on sale here.

American Style Kobe Beef isn't true Kobe Beef from Japan, but nevertheless it is a premium beef and most likely contains more intramuscular fat than USDA Prime Grade beef. (It's not USDA graded because the USDA grades don't go high enough to grade wagyu beef.)

Excellent info but I would still have a problem with them calling it "Kobe-Style" or "American Style Kobe" as it implies the same level of pampering that the Japanese cattle receive. Now, if this is actually the case...
