Costco A5 Wagyu Ribeye Steak, Japanese A5 Beef

Then I realized it was $99 per pound and over $200 for the package. I’ve heard about Japanese A5 Wagyu beef being expensive, but I didn’t realize it was THIS expensive. Costco must have just got this in, because I didn’t see it a few weeks ago when I was grabbing steaks. My wife & I will eat Costco Filet Mignon as a treat a couple times a year. We absolutely love the cut, flavor & quality. It’s a little pricey, but nowhere near this. I’d love to hear how this tastes from anyone who has purchased this before. I’m sure there will be some people who feel it is worth the price, but it is definitely out of my our price range. Here are a few more details about this Costco A5 Wagyu………

One thought on “Costco A5 Wagyu Ribeye Steak, Japanese A5 Beef

  1. Just had this for the first time. It wasn’t a 2 pack we got from Costco, but a single steak. I think it was $85. Three of us were planning to share it just so we could try it. My daughter and her husband hated it (they said it was the texture), but I loved it. It literally melts in your mouth, as it should since it’s mostly fat. That was probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten, and luckily I got the whole steak.
