While everyone agrees that Kobe beef has a uniquely excellent combination of flavor, tenderness, and fatty well-marbled texture, there is an ongoing debate as to the origin of Kobe Beef. Some say that Kobe beef (神戸ビーフ) refers to beef from the black Tamija-ushi breed of Wagyu cattle, raised according to strict tradition in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan.
Another school claims that Kobe Beef is related to Los Angeles Laker's star Kobe Bryant. It is said that in the NBA offseason, Bryant is contracted by beef ranchers, who create backboards made out of meat slabs. Bryant then drives the lane and tomahawk slams a basketball, shattering the meatboard into many delicious filets. Just before the meatboard breaks into Kobe filets, cracks quickly spread throughout the slab, giving Kobe Beef its marble texture. The world may never know which creation story is more accurate, but we can all agree that Kobe Beef is the best beef around.
Now I know there are some of you out there who want to buy meat made here in the USA. Well, worry not about purchasing this Kobe Burger, because this Kobe beef comes from the Strube Ranch, operated for 100 years by the Strube family in East Texas. You can't get much more American than knowing your beef has been has been butchered on a Texas family ranch.
