Costco had some Wagyu, so I had to try it.

Very juicy, the cut picture is after I cut up the other steak for the wife and kids.

I'm not sure if its 'better' then a prime steak, definitely juicy, but I'm not convinced that the meat itself is as/more tender as the last prime ribeye steak I had.

Either way, it was delicious. For those interested, I clarified some butter, got it good and hot and seared.

Looks like a good cut of beef. But NOT $33/each good.

Thats actually pretty cheap compared to "real" Wagyu, Which you're looking at something like $150+ per pound.

Thats American Wagyu, which is a cross between Japanese Wagyu and typical American cattle.

Theres a lot of controversy on the terms "Kobe" and "Wagyu", and they get thrown around to make the suggestion of quality on a given product, which isn't always the case.

Now, if you source some Japanese Wagyu from the Miyazaki region of Japan, thats something to write home about. But thats also somewhere around $300/lb.

Also, I'm not questioning the quality of the steak that KenB925 purchased, I'm sure it was amazing non-the-less

I agree that $30/lb. isn’t super pricey for Wagyu and surely worth trying at least once. Prime U.S. beef can easily top $30/lb. Hope you enjoyed it KenB925!

Good video comparing grades of American beef, including Wagyu, for anyone who’s interested:

Yes, it was very good, but as I said before, I don't think it was quite as tender as the last prime ribeye steaks I bought. Juicy, yes, the marbling was very nice.

They also had Wagyu tri-tip that is tempting, but prime is pretty difficult to beat. The Wagyu Tri-Tip is $19/lb

I guess I would have to try and make my own assessment. However, I'm sure the wife would say "are you CRAZY!" we have kids to feed.

Actually I didn't finish it, I'm going to finish it tonight.

I'm a girl. I notice these things. I recently bought a house and ripped out the kitchen, I would have picked that one in a heart beat.
