ABOUT & HISTORY OF WAGYU KOBE BEEF

Kobe beef, originating in Kobe, Japan, refers to meat from Wagyu cattle. “Wa” means things that are Japanese and “gyu” means cattle or beef. One reason Kobe beef is so desired is because of the high level of marbling in the meat. Kobe beef can be found in American restaurants, but Kobe-style beef is also available in the U.S. Kobe-style beef comes from Wagyu cattle cross-bred with Angus cattle and was created to meet consumer demand.
