Once you try it, you will know. Prime is nothing.

Totally random but: If you ever make it to Osaka message me and I'll refer you to a Michelin recommended steak restaurant where you can try a hamburger patty and a steak for lunch for about $18.

Hamburger would be a waste of money in my opinion. It's all about natural marbling in the steak when it comes to high end steaks. With ground beef, you can add as much fat or lean meat as you want and create whatever fat to protein ration you desire. This can be achieved using different cuts or using trimming of fat.

So I could take USDA Select meat and grind it with some fat trimmings, and I could make it fattier than true ground Japanese Wagyu ribeye.

Why does this have thumbs down? The filet deal comes to ~$176/lb which seems to be way cheaper than anywhere else out there. I understand this is a niche product, but its a good price for what it is.
