ABOUT STEAKHOUSE ELITE
Kobe-Crafted beef is the perfect formulation of American Kobe-Style beef and traditional beef to produce products rich in flavor and ideal in texture. Originating from Japan, Wagyu Cattle (the breed famous for producing the legendary Kobe Beef) are now raised worldwide. For Steakhouse Elite we use only 100% American raised Wagyu to ensure the highest standards of production and food safety for our customers.
Steakhouse Elite products are made from US-raised beef and are never frozen. We received samples of Steakhouse Elite ground beef, hamburgers and hot dogs.
We started with the burgers. When cooking a bunch of burgers I find preformed burgers to be very convenient. Some of the preformed burgers you get at the grocery store just have no taste, while others have a bad taste. The Steakhouse Elite burgers looked pink and fresh, as though someone had just put them together in the kitchen.
The Steakhouse Elite burgers were lean and very tasty. We cooked ours medium rare, which is how most of us prefer them. (My oldest prefers them rare.) The burgers were very juicy but not overly fatty.
The burgers tasted so good that we needed more of them. Not having any patties, I used the Steakhouse Elite ground beef to make more burgers.
I don’t know exactly what percentage of fat the ground beef had but I guessed it might be maybe 90% lean. I guessed this because it cooked up similar to some other 90% lean beef that I’ve had in the past. The meat was very pink and didn’t have a lot of fat. The burgers made with the ground beef were also juicy and delicious.
We also made the hot dogs, which come six to a package. We boiled the hot dogs and didn’t find the water to wind up full of grease like with some hot dogs. The hot dogs were juicy and flavorful. My youngest really wanted the hot dogs but the packaging didn’t mention if they were gluten-free so I had to tell him no. He would have enjoyed them a lot, they were quite good just on a bun with a little ketchup. I bet these would taste great cooked on a grill.
Steakhouse Elite is sold in major grocery stores nationwide including A&P, Acme, Balducci’s, Food Emporium, Foodtown, FreshDirect, Kings, Pathmark, Publix and SuperFresh.
