I few weeks ago I splurged and spent around $50 at Don Q for a little over half a pound of Kagoshima Black Cattle Wagyu (黒牛 和牛). I justified the purchase by telling myself that going out to a high-end restaurant (which we never do) woulda cost way more. No?
Landon simply fried the beef and we dipped it in a tiny bit of fleur de sel salt before eating. It was soooo good.
It's hard to describe the texture of wagyu . . . it's an almost melt-in-da-mouth experience. I hope you get to try some for yourself if you haven't yet. Thanks for the heads-up, Kevin!
