People have many ways of experiencing luxury in life. Cars, jewelry, real estate properties, vacations and so many other things say it all. And when it comes to food, there’s nothing more extravagant and tastefully luxurious than Kobe beef. Recognized by Gourmets and Food connoisseurs all around the world, Kobe beef is known to be the most flavorful, tender and succulent meat on planet Earth. Produced from Wagyu (Japanese Cattle), the Kobe beef brings about a more refined taste compared to most American beef steaks. It’s because the cattle, raised in Hyogo Prefecture in Japan with Kobe as the capital, is well cared for and fed with nothing but beer and grains. They are constantly massaged and their hairs are brushed with sake mash with the belief that caring for the fur and the skin of the cows help enhance the quality of the meat that is to be produced.
Because of the land where the cattle are exclusively raised, and the grain used to feed them, Kobe beef turns out to be quite expensive. It is often used today to prepare a supremely tender Kobe beef steak. But no matter how expensive, chefs and food enthusiasts all around the world demand for the Wagyu beef (other name for Kobe) because of its superior quality and how it exquisitely satisfies every one’s appetite. More often than not, the Kobe beef price is ignored so long as it equates to satisfaction.
What also makes the Wagyu beef perfect for steaks is its high marble score. It also has higher yield grade compared to other domestic cattle. Wagyu beef each has a different Kobe beef price depending on the cut. The Kobe beef filet mignon steak sells at about $300 per 10 ounces.
