Flavor

Kobe Beef is a harmony of delicate, dignified sweet lean meat and the taste and fragrance of melt-in-your-mouth fat. The secret behind its deliciousness is its so-called “shimofuri” fat marbling. The “sashi” fatty content of the meat itself will actually begin to dissolve at low temperatures. This means that it will literally melt in your mouth. An abundant content of inosinic and oleic acids has been scientifically proved as factors that contribute to its outstanding flavor.
