Late Night Devourings: Kobe Beef Burger

Photo by Equalizer

Kobe Beef Burger basted in mesquite marinade topped with maasdam cheese, pommery moutarde de meaux, caramelized onion marmalade, roasted garlic mayonaise on spring onion paratha.

Kobe beef is beef made from cows that are fed a diet enriched with beer and massaged lovingly by attendants in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan. Japanese Kobe Beef is well marbled and very tender. The attention and time given to the cows is said to produce the best beef and gives Kobe beef a high cost. However the variety we receive in Kuwait is called Wagyu, which comes from Australia which is a Kobe wannabe in my opinion.

Everytime I get fed up from ordering Jimmy John sandwiches, I look at your blog and read your recipes to recall the cuisine-y dinner tables back home *sigh* And to think that I used to take it for granted!
When I hopefully come back this Xmas, I'll be waiting for a dish! Of course, in exchange for something from here... :P

Stinni: There is alot more from where that came from :p As for the machboos, I am really glad you liked it.It serves a base recipe, you can always modify here and there to suit your taste. I really wonder how my recipes taste if done by others :p

Blossom: This is a base idea, personally I would add some sliced fennel and roll it to give it that extra oomph.

Erzulie: How 'bout you bring some of those Jimmy John sandwiches or whatever your local specialties are and I'll make you a dish or two? ;)

Samboose: did you notice you only read it when your fasting. Do what zaydoun and ray do. Read right after being stuffed after futoor LOL.

ee walla I would want to be a cow too to be massaged so lovingly and fed on a beer diet. What a life :P

And yes, like Stinni I got great results with your machboos recipe too.

Keep up the good work :)

jenny: I am glad you are :)

Rimyoleta: Naughty is th word :p

Chatterbox: just make sure you dont a beer belly :p

Jewaira: I don't know why I have this feeling you have really good Kuwaiti recipes saved somewhere. Like chatterbox, beware of the beer belly :p

Erzulie: custard? as in frozen custard? are you in the vicinity of Indiana or Illinois? I havent tried frozen custard, so if it is it would be a perfect bargaining chip :p
