Interesting stuff. Didn't even realized that was an intramuscular blood vessel. As soon as I see one of those, it's a no buy for me.
I’m not claiming that’s what’s the only possibility with those steaks - high prime black angus was the best quality beef that came through our facility so it’s possible it’s common. (Funny/sad story- it was from a producer that raised beef for a mail order catalogue that was owned by a coffee machine maker. Sad part was the entire beef went into a fucking hot dog.) Wagyu, Kobe, etc are outside of my budget.

You can see it more pronounced in a standard grocery store or mid-range meat case. The steaks at the back end of the loin likely be the only ones on the tray at the end of a Friday/Saturday. The choices are to either sell them like they aren’t any different than the center cuts, discount them when they have been in the case too long, or throw them in the trim bucket.

This is definitely not the case. The Australian stuff is better than the stuff we’ve got in the states and the Japanese stuff is on another level still. A decent chunk of the “American Wagyu” is overrated but the actual imported shit is every bit as good as it’s billed to be.
I used to get the Australian stuff at Whole Foods before Amazon ruined that party, and it was good, sometimes very good. But not as good as steak as I've had in Oklahoma/Texas by a long shot. I think having to ship it around the world is to blame.

I've only had the Japanese stuff in Japan, and the photos I see online don't do what I've seen in Japan any justice. Even if it did, I find the premiums hard to pay. I may just do it so I can properly troll this threak and call the imported stuff shit without shooting my shot in the dark.

We had this Australian stuff not long ago.

I’ve eaten plenty of steaks in Texas. It’s a different ballgame.

i find myself burning out on beef a little bit, but my interest is being rekindled by flank steak of all things

This one was from Costco and will be splitting it with 3 friends because I actually have 3 friends -- unlike, say, @beargonefishing.

One of my favorite burns from the original Great British Bakeoff: Sue said the challenge had to include four human figures "but don't do Paul Hollywood going for a night out with all his friends because you'll still be three short."

This makes me want to burn all of your personal belongings.

One has to keep price in perspective. The 60-day dry aged American wagyu I posted earlier was $60 a pound. So, ~$150 feeds my family a nice meal. We can do that regularly without much of a thought. But A5 Japanese wagyu at $300+ per pound? Uhh, yeah no thanks (for a normal dinner at home, anyway).

I was really impressed with the flavor and tenderness of these Denver steaks I bought.

I sous vide them, so that certainly would be a factor on their tenderness. I’ll need to try wearing searing them next to see.
