This is the real deal: exceedingly rare Wagyu beef from Japan. More specifically, it is the Kuroge breed of Wagyu and is A-5 grade; literally the top grade of Japanese beef available in the world. There is a limited supply of this extremely rare beef secured exclusively for Costco members!

It is legendary stuff: beef marbled beyond belief, intensely satisfying and graded A-5, the highest possible ranking in the strict Japanese scoring system. There is nothing that can touch this beef for flavor and tenderness.

The Kuroge breed cattle are humanely-raised on grass when young and then finished in the traditional Japanese fashion: with incremental amounts of grain that build on the breed's natural propensity to exquisite and abundant marbling. A stress-free environment and massage for muscle stimulation are all part of the pampering that the cattle receive.

Strict protocols from birth to export ensure beef of unsurpassed quality. The unique Japanese BMS scoring system judges beef on several criteria, and guarantees that the highest standards are met with each piece of beef.

This is beef like you've never had it. Only the finest restaurants ever get Wagyu beef of this quality. A luxurious and memorable experience will be yours with this ribeye that weighs a minimum of 11 lbs and ships fresh.

Cooking tips:
Whatever you do, never overcook this Wagyu beef, or you will render out the precious fat. Cut into steaks and sear on high heat for a short time only. Season simply with salt and pepper to allow the extraordinary flavor to shine.

One last time. You are welcome to your opinion. But remember there are all kinds of slickdealers here and some consider this a great deal. If you don't that it is fine, but trolling this thread is not fine. And warnings will be given out to those who continue to troll or intentionally post off topic posts after this.
There are members who would love to read this thread and find actual information on this product. All the off topic and trolling is not helpful to them. Please move on if you are not interested in the deal. Thanks.
Smilie
TL;DR: Knock it off or trolling warnings will be handed out freely.

This is cool, thanks for posting. My Wegmans always has Australian Grade 9 Wagyu strip for about $55/lb. I have caught it once on the "Daily Special" isle at $27.99. The level of marbling was absurd. I really wonder if this Japanese grade A5 would noticabily better? Don't think I'll ever find out....

These two quotes made me chuckle:

I would agree that it is beef I have never had before. You'd think that for almost $100/lb they would cook it for you.

Since this is exclusive to Costco and only the finest restaurants ever get this quality of beef, we must conclude that the finest restaurants shop at Costco.

agreed... I can understand $100/LB Tuna, since you eat it raw as part of Sushi,
but if I could afford $100/LB Beef, I'd also hire Gordon Ramsey to prepare it LMAO

This is typically eaten rare. Just requires a quick sear. Or you could probably eat it raw as carpaccio.

Pretty sure Japan don't want their 100% waguy outside of Japan. You can breed them with US and Australian cows, but the offsprings will only taste marginally better than regular US and Aus beef. For real Wagyu beef, you really have to go to Japan. It is totally worth the journey. It was incredible. Unbelievable amount of juice, and literally, LITERALLY, you can cut through the meat with your forks and no effort.

I wonder if they mean the heritage of the cattle is from Japan! i know Japan has really strict regulations on their beef and a tiny percentage gets exported.

if i am going to japan, its gonna be for KOBE!
