I tasted it as hamburger at the NY Restaurant Show a couple of weeks ago. It was quite tasty, and juicy even though cooked to well-done. Came from Snake River Farms. They say they use only whole muscle chuck and sirloin -- so it wasn't really all that surprising that it was good. But it was still just hamburger.

So well done and juicy? I wonder what the fat content is in their hamburgers. Was there any fat left in the beef or was it grainy with holes in it? I'm curious to try the filet mignon! :)

I have investigated this online before, when I first heard that the cattle was being raised in the US. There is lots of info just doing a google search for kobe beef. The pictures are AWSOME! I would like to try the ribeye steaks first. The amount of marbling is incredible. Try the samples and post about it I am really curious. I want to order some for my family at Christmas. The site I found most actrative was a farm in Texas. The mans stock comes the largest herd in Japan. If I can find it again I will post the link.

If that is per pound it is cheap based on the prices I have seen on the web. The filets this picture is of are 8oz each, $120 for four. Or about $60 per pound.

hmmmm. I tried to attach a file, but I don't think it worked????:p
