Japanese beef is I, personally think is one of a kind of beef in the world.
I’ve tasted many; US, Aussie, Argentina, Firenze(Italian), Argentina, Spanish and British but Japanese beef – we call it wa.gyu, is far off of a kind, a pure delicacy.
So if you’re ever in Japan, try the wa.gyu, ‘wa’ meaning Japanese and ‘gyu’ meaning Beef in any form of cooking; shabu shabu, sukiyaki, steak, grilled Korean yakiniku style, etc. You will probably agree the difference in the taste and tenderness which I hear some of the gourmets in California are totally addicted to.
There is even a home page on Wa.gyu, so worth checking if you are real beef eater!!!
Here is a French style cooking of BRISKET cooked in Red Wine with tomato sauce which is one of my husband’s favorites. It adds stamina to your body, to fight the gruelling summer!!!
