Beef In Casper For $149.99 A Pound?

The other day I stopped in Grant Street Grocery for a quick sandwich and conversation. The conversation as usual turned to the meat counter and a new addition called Kobe Beef.

Kobe Beef or Wagyu Beef is a special breed of beef from Japan and must meet a number of criteria including the fact that it is Tajima cattle born in Hyōgo Prefecture, farm feeding must also take place in Hyōgo Prefecture, it must be a Bullock (steer) or castrated bull, to purify the beef, the beef must be processed at slaughterhouses in Kobe, Nishinomiya, Sanda,  Kakogawa, or Himeji in Hyōgo Prefecture. The marbling ratio, called BMS, must be at  level 6 and above and have a Meat Quality Score of 4 or 5. The gross weight of beef from one animal is 470 kg or less.

After all of these criteria have been met, it can be sold as Kobe beef and is issued a certificate of authenticity that looks like this,

So with all that it is no wonder that this could be a pricey piece of meat. For $149.99 a pound you too could impress family and neighbors at your next backyard barbeque, but be sure and get a special order in, this stuff seems to sell as fast as it comes in.

I will be waiting for my invite.
