Kobe Beef is a prized Japanese delicacy distinguished as a tender, flavorful meat that is well marbled with fat. It is produced from pedigreed Tajima breed cattle.
Kobe Beef must pass a series of requirements and only the highest grades of meat with exceptionally high levels of fat marbling earn the Kobe Beef label, which is a strictly-guarded trademark.
This highly marbled hard to find cut of beef is sourced from the sirloin cap known as the coulotte is also called picanha in Brazilian steak houses. This cut has a tender sirloin steak texture with rich juicy beef flavor not your traditional flatiron.
