Meat Digest : The History of Kobe Beef
A Heavenly Kind of Mystery Meat
In the mid-nineties, rumors and mutterings about a superior breed of beef cattle from the Far East began surfacing in the food world. Soon enough, Kobe beef started popping up on influential menus at astronomical prices, upwards of two hundred dollars per pound. It was said to have a mind-boggling texture and flavor, unrivaled by any steak one could sink one’s teeth into in the U.S. Along with the beef came the stories: tales of secret Japanese traditions, including cows fed with beer, massaged with sake, and soothed with classical music. It seemed fantastic, and not at all cowboy-ish. The New Age myths began to take hold. [ Visit Website ]

In A Beef-Crazed City Like Chicago, Kobe is the New King
Ever since the rise and ultimate fall of the union stockyards, Chicago has been known for beef. American, beef that is. But our Hungry Hound says there is a new breed of cattle from Japan that's getting local steakhouses excited again about rib eyes, filets, and even burgers. A new breed of cattle has been generating buzz in Chicago restaurants. It's imported from Japan, raised on American ranches, and has more marbling than even the finest prime aged beef. Meat lovers better get used to hearing the words "Kobe" and "Wagyu" from now on. In a beef-crazed city like Chicago, Kobe is the new king. >>> [ Visit Website ]
