This Kobe Ribeye steak is the pinnacle of Japanese Wagyu. Cut to Holy Grail's specifications, these steaks weigh in at 13oz and will absolutely melt in your mouth. Kobe Beef is extremely rare with under 1,000 head of cattle a year exported for the entire globe. Literally the cream of the crop, Kobe Beef is limited to only the top cattle of the Hyogo Prefecture, limited to A4 and A5-grade wagyu only. Named after the city of Kobe in Hyogo Prefecture, this remote regions isolated genetics allowed for the development of what is known today as the Tajima line, a very pure genetic breed of cattle whose DNA has been sought after and spread to other cattle throughout Japan but which remains unadulterated in the Kobe region. Its purity is jealously guarded by the small farmers that comprise the Kobe association. Kobe Beef is simply the most sought-after beef on the planet. Purveyors of authentic Kobe Beef must operate under exclusive license of the Kobe-Niku, and Holy Grail Steak Co. is a premiere online retailer of certified authentic Kobe beef.
