For that kind of money, I'd better be getting blown by Salma Hayek while eating it.

It must be a tough awakening for some cow that has had beer and massages its whole life to suddenly show up at the slaughterhouse. It's like growing up as the king and then having the peasants take you to the guillotine.

Nothing says "I love you" like flame broiled beef.

$150 a lb for a cow that was massaged. Ripoff if you ask me.

How good is this? I'll never be able to afford it, just wondering.

it's a little high by the pound from what i have paid before, but if you have had Wagyu before you understand

i mean the real deal, not the american knockoff that is sometimes sold as Kobe

No meat is worth $150/lb. I don't care if it's spoon fed to me by a naked Charleze Theoren, it's not worth it.

no $hit, even if I were Warren Buffett, I wouldn't go around spending cash like that. Well maybe once, just to compare it

No, that would be worth it.....PB&J would be worth $150 a pound in that scenario. Besides, how much could a peanut butter sandwich weigh?

Agreed. I had Kobe once, and it was unbelievable. Not something I'd spend money on regularly, but I'd recommend any beef lover to splurge at least once in their life...

Japanese Kobe Beef is fantastic. It has an incredible rich flavor profile. It should only be eaten in small portions 3-4 ounces at a time. I liken it to Foie Gras, a little goes a long way.

I think that Piedmontese Beef is better for steaks. This cattle is from the chianina breed from Italy. They are grass fed with no antibiotics or growth hormones. It is still expensive at $20 a pound. Yet after tasting it nothing comes close to its flavor.

True. But otherwise, what's the point of being rich?

I'll bet really, really rich people have beef from cows who are even more special than these cows. Cows who look down their noses at these cows. I'm talking $1000 a pound cows.

Oh well...

The decimal point was accidentally moved to the right one too many times. Two too many?

Have you ever seen a Piedmontese bull? Absolutely stunning animals. They look like reverse panda bears and tend to be incredibly mellow. You can go up to a bull and scratch his head if you are so inclined.

One of my grandparents' neighbors raises some very high quality piedmontese. My grandpa used one of his bulls and crossed it with some black angus cows. Fantastic meat.

i will say as well that the American kobe is not bad at all. if you have never had either, it will still be the best beef you've ever eaten. they should not charge wagyu prices for american kobe, that's all.

Japs do some crazy shit do the cow like feed it beer and massage it i think.

Better to let is sit on leather chair and surf the internet like most of us bastards. The marbling which gives us heart disease sure tastes good in cow meat!

Organically grown by me.

Throat sliced, gutted and split by me.

Cut and wrapped by the meat cutter.

Garnished with some of my own cultivated rosemary sprigs, yum.
