I can't see the pics but if the title of the thread is any indication there should be some Kobe rib eye steaks there.
My husband and I splurged at a high end restaurant one day and had Kobe hamburger. If your steaks are half as good as the burger you're in for a real treat. It was the most delicious, richest meat I have ever tasted. Hope the pics come through.

I'm not sure what Kobe means, but that is a great looking steak!

Information about Kobe beef can be found on wikipedia:
Kobe beef - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Basically, what sets it apart from other beef is the fat content / marbling. You can see the amount in the piece I photographed. This is American Kobe beef, the stuff imported from Japan has even more marbling.

I cook them often. They spend about 11-12 minutes being cooked.

How I cook them:

S&P to room temp.
HOT sear until browned, flip, add rosemary butter, throw them in a broiler to finish. While resting, make a sauce which I sometimes use now, but usually save for later.

Serve with a Pinot Noir ;)



I have a supplier really close to my house which also houses a lot of other exquisite meat -- elk, venison, ostrich, alligator, wild boar, bear, etc.

The kobe beef is $24/lb. The piece featured in the photos was $43.
