Kobe beef is some of the most tender beef you can eat. First time I ever had it was as an appetizer in New York. The small bites of meat were $30/piece and that was back in the 1990s. I had it again when I was on a business trip to Kobe, Japan. Pretty wonderful cut of beef.Have never tried the Jap cuts. I do enjoy Sushi.
Funny story about the dinner in Japan. I ordered prawns and beef at a Japanese style steak house. Well I didn't know the prawn was going to be alive when they threw on the grill in front of me. LOL
