Spotted this listing/tag at the meat section in the Costco store. It caught my eye because the price was $1,499.99!
Checked it out at Costco.com and this is really Wagyu beef from Japan, from the Kuroge breed and with an A-5 grade. You can see the marbling in the photo below.
I’m sure it tastes amazing but the price is amazing too 😉
Nevertheless, it is still much cheaper than having this in a restaurant. If you’ve ever been to Alexander’s Steakhouse in Cupertino CA, I think the price for the Wagyu A5 there was about $40/oz (or $640/lb).
Costco’s price is only $136.37/lb which means that Costco is about 79% cheaper!
The ribeye will be shipped to you fresh (!), not frozen, and has a minimum weight of 11 lbs.
The Japanese Wagyu Boneless Ribeye Roast A-5 Grade is priced at $1499.99.
Shipping and handling is included.
Unit price is $136.67/lb (or about $8.54/oz)
Item number 818183.
