    Default More Beef Palace

    So I was in the Huntington Beach area today and thought Id swing by to get a chicken. Costs about 10 bucks but there is no finer, plumper and juicier chicken then the Beef Palace. All of their stuff is amazing so no surprise the chicken is tops as well. Anyhow......

    So I happen to ask one of the clerks about the Kobe Beef. The Manager overhears and comes over and tells us that the best Kobe actually comes from Australia and New Zealand as they use a better type of cattle then those used in Japan. I asked if he had ever heard of Hayama Beef since its the wifes home town and in Japan its as well known as the Kobe. He says no so I tell him the story and what not. So the guy wraps the chicken and says anything else as to which I reply "trust me if I had the money Id buy the store."

    So Im getting ready to leave and the manager points to one of the aged Kobe steaks and says "take this one...it looks to be about the best." And I say "yeah Im sure it is but Im here just for the chicken" to which the manager says "this ones on the house."

    So he proceeds to take the $26 buck a pound kobe rib eye steak and wrap it for me on the house. Normally this steak would cost over $38 bucks for 1 steak. Couldnt believe it.

    Thought I would share yet another amazing Beef Palace experience....your results may vary.
    Sorry for the big pic but wanted to show the marbling of the beef.

    Better type of cattle? 100% Wagyu (breed) is going to be the same all over. Differences are down to the diet, environmental conditions and age before butchering that will make the biggest difference in quality of the marbling. The more lazy the Wagyu is, the better the end result meaning wagyu couch potatoes are the best!!! hahaha

    Update...will cook the steak tomorrow but the chicken is amazing. Honestly-the thigh meat is amazing. You can identify and remove each layer of meat one by one. Seriously good.

    I cooked it on the bbq at the lowest setting. Added some pecan chips and slowly let is cook and rotated accordingly.

    Depends on what you are looking for - For a Mexican-style meat try Flores Meats in Wilmington. I love the place and they serve great food as well. The shopping center is pretty ghetto and they don't get many non-Spanish speakers there, but it's all about the food. My gringo husband likes shopping there for asada.

    Flores Meats - Wilmington - Wilmington, CA

    Manhattan Meats was already mentioned as a standard butcher shop. Highly recommended

    There is also El Gaucho Meat Market in Redondo.

    I live a long way from the Beef Palace in RPV, but I don't care, I'm going to go there anyway.

    Made some burgers from Beef Palace ground beef the other day. Damn tasty. A little over $9 for 2.5 lbs of ground beef, so not that much more expensive than the grocery store if ground beef isn't on sale. Hell if I'm gonna pay $3.69/lb for ground beef at Vons or Stater Bros if I can pay that price and get meat from Beef Palace.

    Too far to drive for me but I'm very pleased with what I get from our local butchers here in San Diego, Iowa Meat Farms/Siesel's Meat & Deli.
