This thread reminds me. I've heard a lot of advertising lately for an outfit called Allen Brothers. Has anybody had experience with them? How was their product? I checked them out online (absteaks.com). They seem pretty expensive, but it might just be worth the price. If you want to order something from them and have it shipped to me, I'll be glad to supply my address and a critique of the product. Thanking you in advance for your generosity, I remain ever your faithful servant.

Hrm well I really enjoyed Kobe Beef. Ive had it at a few really nice restaurants. Chef june and i had it in NY if im not mistaken it was march... that you ordered the Kobe beef addition

I think it depends how its cooked and prepared

I would reccomend if you HAVENT tried it to try it.. Why because i think we should all try new things!

I had Kobe beef once, and it was wonderful. It was oh, so tender, juicy and flavorful. I loved it, but my husband wasn't wowed. To each his own, I guess.

For those of you who like to read, Jeffrey Steingarten's book "The Man Who Ate Everything" has a good chapter on Kobe/Wagyu... its called "Where's The Wagyu?"

I have never tried it either, but I would if I saw it for sale. Mainly curiosity, our local beef is very good indeed.

I'd much rather have an angus beef burger 'cause my Kobe burger wasn't good. And for the price difference it wasn't worth it AT all.

So far, I have ordered from Tender Filet (great steaks, great quality... a tad bit pricy). They have these stuffed pin wheel steaks I just love and are easy and quick to fix!!!

Ohmaha Steaks... well I would have given this better consideration, but when they started calling me at home... I pretty much drew the line there. Was not impressed with the hamburgers.

Pflazer Brothers... good quality, great taste and a tad bit cheaper.

I order most of my beef online, I just have never been satisfied with the quality in the stores and the local butcher failed to even live up to the g-stores offerings and quality.

I don't eat much beef, but when I do, I want to eat a good steak. Provided I don't muck it up cooking it!!!
