Good old western mountain raised naturally fed beef are the best in my book. Find my best beef thru Albertsons and Smiths, sadly they are not in too many states.

Yes, was some of the best beef that I've ever had also. But not at the price that want today. Was much cheaper back then. Fantastic flavor and melted in your mouth!

I have had imported Wagyu beef at the Seattle restaurant Metropolitan Grill, (albeit it not anywhere near 1 lb but at $140 for 8 oz). Kobe 'style' (raised in the Kobe fashion, but in the USA) beef is available at less cost than imported Kobe beef. I am not sure of any Wagyu-style USA raised beef.

I felt the Wagyu was much different and worth the experience "once" on my own dime, but even the Metropolitan Grill's price was nowhere near the Costco price, it was just a few months ago that I had it and in Seattle (Costco's home turf). Maybe Costco is hoping to cover some of it's executive bonuses.

It's hard enough for me to eat beef anyway since I'm such an animal lover, but there's no way I could put a bite of Kobe beef in my mouth. If you don't know how this meat is produced read this:


Then see if you still want a bite . . .

I could come up with any number of questionable food practices that would probably turn you away from eat any number of products as I worked for Wilson's Meat Packers.

I agree.

To each his own.

I would still like to taste some Kobe Beef.

We visited a Kobe beef farm in Japan. The cattle we saw were treated very well, much better that the cattle raised in feed lots here.

There is no difference between this and paying $4.00 for a cup of coffee. When you have money to burn then some people will burn it. Others will save it. It is part of the "right now" generation. One of the richest men in America "brown bagged" his lunch every day. That did not make him a miser. He spent his money on other things that he considered more important. Maybe selective spending was how he got so rich??

There was more to it than that. I tried that approach for years and it didn't work for me.
