I went to the store to get some rib eyes and found that they had some kobe rib eyes (i know it's american) at $20lb. so i got two good sized ones cost $30 and gave em a new home. i let them set until room temp and seasoned them with kosher salt and pepper then i put them on the ROL at 325 grill temp.

don't get ahead of me! i hear you thinkin! "you can't get sear marks using the ROL" heeerrre's the resttt of the story!

i cooked them until they where 125 internal = medium rare then put them on the grate that i had sitting right on top of the burner to sear.

they looked great. But as far as the taste and texture i give it a 4 out of 10.
they where tough almost like an over cooked filet mignon and it had a weird texture to it. a regular choice rib eye had more flavor. so i was not impressed with it at all.

i know it's not the ROL because i have cooked many great tasting steaks on it.

maybe i should look at the label again, it might "say crap-a instead of kobe"

Ouch...that hurts. It's bad enough when an ordinary steak turns out to be a disappointment but $30 down the drain really stings! Too bad, too...they look good.

i made some regular rib eyes the next night cost me $11 and they came out great. sometimes cheaper is better.

has anyone tried prime cut rib eyes?

I rarely see Prime rib eyes that are better marbled than good quality Angus. When I buy Prime it is usually Sirloin (a tasty cheaper cut) or splurge on Strips.

Agree with Phillyjazz, Angus Ribeyes are tender, tasty and hard to beat.
Yours look great though!!
It’s definitely not the cook’s fault :)

Holy cow (pun intended)...a restaurant is getting $350 for a legit Kobe steak?!? I wonder how much the real deal will retail for...obviously not $350 but still some serious coin!
