Sup today is my 32nd birthday, so I figured I would treat myself. I went and bought 2Lbs of wagyu beef
While the pan is heating, I'm preparing a dipping sauce made from this
I have a mini cast iron pan that's heating up. I'm simply going to give each piece a light coating in oil, and a touch of fresh cracked black pepper and Himalayan pink salt. sear each side for ~10 seconds.
>hurr i'm going to 'cook' this several inch thick steak
>aww yeah, cold fat and meat in the middle
Eh it's cool. At least she doesn't complain about my diet. She leaves me alone, and I do the same. Besides calling her a faggot like every day.
So I'm gonna render the fat I cut off.
>wife is a vegan
Don't tell me you married her knowing this. It's shit like this that reminds me why I get a hard on when my gf eats bacon.
this is not the way to cook steak you stupid piece of shit the red means the fat inside the steak hasnt rendered and its completely raw there.
you want it to be pink that means the fat has melted into the meat and it is 100x more delicious
Medium rare is factually the best way to have a steak.
No the conch initially eight meet with me all the time. But then her best friend turned vegan. I saw the warning signs, but I ignored them. I even told her if she thinks she's going to turn vegan then I'm fucking out, and she reassured me that that wasn't going to happen. But then I put a ring on her finger. Three months later, she tells me she's done eating meat
I'm sorry to hear that my nigga. I guess I got lucky cause my gf has said she can't live without meat.
>using your voice on your phone instead of typing
Must be the same person complaining about image.jpg in two other threads.
>Bro I'm using voice command on my shitty cell phone excuse me.
This is where we're at now?
Under normal conditions, no. But I had to at the moment.
Fat is starting to look like it should
When we call each other faggot, there's real love behind it.
Love is finding a woman you can call a retarded faggot, and she just laughs and tells you to Fuck off.
If you don't have that I feel bad for you
IT IS COMPLETED
nothing spectacular really, just going to use it to fry my eggs in the morning, things like that.
>there are people who don't sear the sides of a steak
You fucked up OP.
I only got half a pound of Wagyu, but I cooked it properly. Whole, and on the grill. None of this sissy pan shit. I think your wife's faggotry is rubbing off on you.
Well, if that's the way they do it in Japland I guess it's okay!
wagyu is way different than a regular steak; there's so much intramuscular fat that it has to be cooked to medium to render it. medium rare leaves it chewy.
it's way different than rendering an entire fat cap, dumbasses. mediumi makes it taste like the steak was infused with butter.. med rare is still delicious, and you get some of that buttery-ness, but it's chewy.
i mean obviously this isn't as big a difference as we're making it out to be, but medium ius the best way to enjoy that steak. objectively speaking, of course.
Where you can see the fibres formed... It's cooked properly. That middle part where it's red with no fibre formed isn't cooked. It probably registers as room temperature when probed.
>Why did you buy fake American wagyu instead of genuine Japanese wagyu?
Because that would be incredibly expensive and isn't convenient and $25 a pound like this American stuff is.
>You don't care that you didn't eat meat from an actual Japanese cow?
I've had grade A4 Wagyu from Japan sushi. Was $15 for two pieces, but oh so worth it. I'd kill for a NY strip of that to cook up.
Many American restaurants and American meat distributors like to scam customers into thinking they sell real Japanese wagyu so Japan's beef producers created an association to try to prevent the scam from going further.
Here is a list of every American or foreign restaurant or distributor outside of Japan that serves or sells Genuine Kobe Beef (and other Japanese beef) and has gotten certified and authorized by Japan's Wagyu Association.
Next time, you buy or eat Wagyu, check this list to see if you didn't get scammed or not.
Also, picture related, any meat distributor or restaurant outside Japan will now be encouraged to display this Japanese certification plaque as proof to customers that they are selling geniune Japanese beef.
If you still don't believe them, Japan has IDed every amount of Japanese Wagyu they sell to other countries in this list so you can check if you aren't getting scammed or not.
So yeah, hope this post is helpful to people who want to try real Kobe or Japanese beef in the future.
Just bookmark this official Japanese Kobe Beef Marketing & Distribution Promotion Association website and if you ever have the opportunity to try Kobe Beef, check this site to make sure you didn't get scammed.
I don't know what country you are from but the link I gave you shows all restaurants and distributors for almost every country that serves and sells genuine Japanese wagyu outside of Japan.
Ironic because White People make a big deal over Chicken compared to Beef.
For example, France's Bresse Chicken.
Europe cares about chicken in the same way the Japanese care about cows.
Are you gonna claim there is no difference now?
Hi my name is Dundee and was sent here by the glorious country of Australia and we would like to purchase this form of voice command shitposting for a hefty sum of 1 million Australian dollars (15 american dollars)
I don't think they're a weeaboo, dude.
Don't be down on someone just because they're concerned with quality. Provide objective evidence that there is no difference if you think there isn't. Your words are just your opinion without anything to back it up.
The other poster, on the other hand, claims there is a difference and provided evidence of the difference: the fact that it comes from Japan.
I know you're likely speaking to the taste or the quality, but you did not specify that in either of your posts. I challenge you to provide evidence of a difference that goes above and beyond the fact that "real" kobe is from kobe and "fake" is from elsewhere. Extra points if you can do it without insulting or attacking character.
Like old dude said above, that's very likely not real. Kobe - style is still great beef typically, but not really better than prime in general. It's also really hard to get the real stuff outside of japan, and 100 bucks for two pounds sounds way low to me.
Wagyu does not mean Kobe beef. It just means Japanese beef. That said it looks like a very shitty cut if its actually Japanese beef. I've never seen so little marbling on the super market steaks in Tokyo, but it does look like an Aussie or American cut that literally go for half the price
