As so it was...that I landed in a shop in Mainz...'EdelBeef'.
Huge sides of beef behind glass...massive selection of top meat. I dived in and told the owner to give me a selection. Four different cuts...price?...you never ask a woman her age...so don't ask the price.
I have always wanted to try the Japanese Kobe Beef...Kagoshima Entrecote was the selection.
Hot pan...two minutes each side...then onto a warm oven tray and at 60 degrees....15 minutes to develope.
I will never forget the first mouthful. It looked perfect after cutting a piece.
It looked like steak...but just seemed to melt in the mouth. Unforgetable!
Two other cuts were Ok(and not as expensive...so as always...you get what you pay for)
The last one I had popped into the deep freezer after purchase and was looking forward to this Australian version...Westholme Waygu.
So...when I feel like going over the top....I will treat myself to the Japanese version...but the Aussie would not be any trouble.
