Marbled Melt-in-Your-Mouth Meat
I went to my favorite Japanese supermarket, Owajimaya, to buy ingredients for some Asian meals. Let me say that this grocery store sells some pretty nice meat, nice expensive things in general. I’ve been really good at resisting the temptation to buy the nice beef but decided to splurge this time…I mean it was really for poor Jake who was stuck at home eating frozen dinners while I was working in Europe. ;0
Look at these pieces of beef! Look at the glorious fat! I bought 1/2 lbs for $15 and cooked it simply with salt and pepper. It was the most tender piece of meat I’ve ever eaten. I wouldn’t consider it the best since it was already cut into individual strips and couldn’t be cooked as a normal steak, but it was definitely tender and delicious.
Was it absolutely worth the price tag? Resounding YES! Would I buy it again? Yes but not now. It’s too decadent for a daily/weekly/monthly indulgence. It’s best for special occasions or else I would be spoiled. It has been feeding my obsession with visiting Japan and trying Kobe and other Japanese beef. Yummy beef. I love delicious food.
