How much would you pay for prime rib?

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.14.2009

Captain Caffeine sent me this link for a 16 pound prime rib roast that can be ordered at Costco.com. I think they offered it mainly for the holidays.



Go ahead. Click on the link. See how much it costs. I’ll wait here until you come back. Go on.

DID YOU SEE HOW MUCH THAT PUPPY COST??????

Captain Caffeine says it’s a fine grade of beef like Kobe. At the restaurant, Kobe costs about $200 for 8 ounces, so 3Gs for a 15 pound roast is actually a deal. Right?

I had Kobe beef once—my parents took us out to dinner for a special occasion except I can’t remember the occasion, just the beef. LOL

Anyway, the Kobe beef was REALLLY GOOD. I mean REALLLLLY. For a beef lover like me, it was heaven—super super tender, with a delicate beef flavor.

But it wasn’t quite worth the price, I’m sorry to say. I’d rather spend $35 for an aged ribeye. Sure, the pleasure factor wouldn’t be as high, but the pleasure per dollar ratio would be a lot better with the ribeye.

How about you guys? Any beef lovers? Anyone else tried a Kobe steak?

  2. Whaaaaaaaaaat? I can't believe that price. HOLY MOLY!

    Yeah, I like a good steak or something, but I'd become a vegetarian before paying that much for some meat. LOL

  3. Oh my! You've got to be kidding me. But look at the marbling in that meat, one fatty calf. Marbling, btw, is how much fat is laced in the meat.

    Honestly, I'd take my dad and uncle's homegrown beef any day. Perfect marbling and tenderness, aged to just the right day, and the taste, hmmm. Man, Camy, you need to stop by my place sometime and I'll grill you up a good tender Ribeye steak from some corn-fed Iowa beef.

  4. I'm just way too cheap to pay it! Lol...especially after my NY resolution to use coupons and specials for everything. Seriously, the checkers love to look at how much I've saved on my receipt (record so far is 51%, but I'm working on it!).

    Now maybe if they threw in a chef to cook the thing, I might relent...

  5. Never tried one. At that price, I probably never will.

  6. Camy,
    That is hilarious! I clicked that link with my son in law looking over my shoulder and got quite an education. Not only is it about what the cows eat, it's about the daily massages that they get that makes that beef so tender and so expensive. But I was like WHAT?!? You've gotta be kidding me right? I know I'll never get the chance to taste it. But thanks for the Wow!
