Kobe Beef Burgers
Have you ever had a Kobe Beef Burger? If not you should try one as it was one of the best burgers I have tasted that was cooked at home. My parents had me over for supper since my husband had to work. They purchased these Kobe Burgers from Kroger’s for about $11.00 for four burgers. They seem to be similar to the Japanese version but much cheaper. Have you ever heard of the Japanese Wagyu Beef Steaks? These can sell for up to $26.85 per ounce for the real certified beef. Read on about this unique and unbelievably overpriced Japanese beef meat but said to be worth the taste.
As you can see these burgers were not from Japan but from the national grocery store in America.
This is a screen shot from Amazon.com on 10-15-20 of the Genuine Kobe Ribeye steaks they are selling. Are you thinking why would anyone want all that fat in their steak? It’s because it is actually good for you. It is filled with unsaturated fats, which have been shown to lower cholesterol levels. It is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids making it the healthiest red meat that you can eat! The marbling of the web like fat deposits is what makes this beef tender and melt in your mouth quality.
I Googled Wagyu cattle pictures and this screen shot shows that they look just like regular cattle. Wagyu cattle are raised in luxury and fed a special diet. They are slaughtered at three years old, eighteen months longer than the traditional techniques. The cost of purchasing one of these cattle can cost up to $200.00 per pound and the cows themselves can cost as much as $30,000.
On my retirement income, I will have to stick to the American Kobe Beef Burgers like my parents made for me! Maybe some day I will be able to afford the Wagyu steak, which I would love to taste, but I doubt it.
