    I took the plunge and ordered two 10 oz Grade A5 Japanese Wagyu Ribeyes.
    A5 Japanese Ribeye | Allen Brothers
    I've had American and Australian Wagyu and while good they dont come close to the real deal when it comes to marbling.

    I've never been so nervous about cooking a steak!
    Plan on doing the reverse sear since it's so predictable.

    I'll admit I played the sympathy card with the Wife....:boohoo:

    I'd really like to try some Japanese Wagyu before I go under the knife for my failed hip surgery Sweetie... :abgg2q.jpg:

    That's the best looking steak I've ever seen! I have a ribeye, frozen. :(

    No sour cream either, bah. Tunafish or hot dogs tonight.

    This is a once a year kinda thing for sure.
    A 40 day dry aged prime ribeye is badass as well and you can buy a six rib for $130 and turn it into a $300 dollar hunk of meat with patience.

    Only $279.95 for two, 10 oz. steaks.

    What a bargain. :9:

    The thing that amazes me?
    The center marbling is as good as the cap portion.
    Man I would love to buy the 6 rib Wagyu but they want $1400 for it.

    I enjoy expensive, fine cigars & I buy & sell guitars.
    Some of the profit I make on guitar sales goes to fill up my humidor.
    Being from Louisiana I love to eat; food is the state sport down there. :21:
    Of course, I don't require expensive food but I do have to keep my bar stocked with some pricey Scotch. :26:

    When I worked at Hitachi Semiconductor US about 30 years ago we worked with a lot of Japanese. They will work all day long, sometimes 12 hours but when it's time to leave work they love to go out & drink beer until they puke. I'm not kidding; they can drink beer like fucking mad men.
