Wednesday, October 16, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Wow!  We have a lot of beef lovers out there!!!  Thanks for all of your comments!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Lisa P!

Do you love beef?  Juicy hamburgers, ground beef, steaks?  Then you will be as excited as I am about today’s review.

I must admit, I have never tried Kobe beef.  I almost always just pick up a package of 85% ground beef from the market or sometimes some ground bison.  When I received my sample of American Kobe Beef from Firelands Cattle Company, I couldn’t wait to try it!

What makes Kobe beef so delicious and so much better for you?  Here’s a little bit about it from the Firelands website:

Kobe is globally known to be the greatest tasting red meat available.  This does not happen by accident.  To obtain the highest grade available, traditional USDA grading systems call for 6-8% marbled fat.  In comparison, the Firelands American Kobe falls in the 20-25% range.  This extremely high degree of marbled fat is what gives Kobe beef its superior texture and taste. Yet this fat is mostly monounsaturated, which can actually lower LDL (or ‘bad’) cholesterol. This should provide guilty relief when you eat our beef!

This beef is so good!  I apologize that I didn’t take more pictures for you, but the beef disappeared so quickly!  😉

I did get a picture of my dinner plate the night I used my American Kobe Ground Beef to make a family favorite, shepard’s pie.

This beef is so delicious, that my husband and I decided that we will be ordering from Firelands Cattle Company regularly, from now on.  We were really impressed.
