I'm with you, Steve.... my mom's family raised beef and pork for market, and cows for dairy... yearly they butchered a Guernsey steer for beef... and it was always delicious.

I have to agree with Steve A. also. Growing up on different ranches, I was able to taste different breeds (in steak, roast, etc. form). It all depends on the feed, enviroment, etc. Also the age of the cattle at time of slaughter matters too.

LOL ... easy Ishbel ....

Most people don't know one cow from another.

I agree with Phil - Angus is about as good as it gets. I actually prefer the Red Angus - not the more common Black Angus - it's closer to the original Aberdeen Angus.

If you grew up on a farm - you'll know about this stuff ...

I grew up on a farm in Iowa. We raised both red/black Angus and Charlais. I cannot tell the difference in taste.

Can you tell me where in WA this beef is coming from please? Our Wagyu is coming from KBA which is in Bend OR but if someone else in the NW is producing it would be great to know. Thanks.

Kobe beef rocks. Alberta beef is probably second. Niman Ranch is third. But that's just my tastes. This a Kobe striploin:

Scotty i was mistaken. The Washington Kobe beef ive tried has been at a sushi joint around here.

The one i get from my butcher is also from KBA, and i am not sure where it comes from. My apologies.

I had a look in my butcher's window this morning... Aberdeen Angus fillet steak is on 'sale' (!) for 21 GB pounds per kilo.
