USDA Prime, the highest USDA grade
USDA Prime, the highest USDA grade for beef does not adequately represent the quality of our distinctive and delicious beef. Only 3% of all beef in the US receives the designation of Prime, yet Snake River Farms far exceeds the standard. For this reason, we utilize the Japanese marbling scale which accurately measures the marbling in Snake River Farms beef. For these reasons Snake River Farms is my number on choice when purchasing American Kobe Wagyu Ribeye Filet 8oz.

Preparation for the best beef you can find at any price.
Wagyu and Kobe beef can be grilled, the cooking technique is difficult to master. For this reason I recommend cooking it on the stove in a skillet is my personal favorite. You need a seasoned cast iron skillet for Wagyu and Kobe beef cooking until you become more familiar with the process.
Never cook straight from the refrigerator. Allow your steaks to come to room temperature, usually takes about 30 minutes to one hour or so, depending on thickness.
Next, season your steaks. Salt, pepper, light dusting of onion powder and or garlic powder will do.
Preheat your skillet over high heat. Cut off some fat, if your cut has fat, from your steaks around the edges and use it to grease your pan for the best, most natural flavor. If lean cuts, use a little bit of butter or olive oil.
Sear steaks for three to four minutes on each side, depending on how well you like them done. For a rarer cook, go closer to three; for a medium cook, shoot for four.
Check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer, which should read about 130-degrees for medium-rare doneness. Remove the Wagyu steaks from the heat and pan and allow them to rest for 5 to 10 minutes to allow their juices to flow back through the meat. Serve immediately and get ready for the best steak you have ever tasted. You guest will think you are in fact a Master Chef.
