How can we get it at reasonable prices? There is loophole, actually.
Baby Tajimaushi are also raised in Ebetsu, Hokkaido, and send them back to Hyogo when they grow up. The meat is called Ezo Tajima Ushi, which is cheaper than Tajima Ushi sold in Hyogo.
The other day, I bought a block of its round tip in order to make beef tataki!
It is 600 yen per 100g, which is still expensive, but if you eat it at restaurants, it may be several times more expensive than this one! Wow! Wow! Wow!
Here's how to make beef tataki!
①Sprinkle black peppers on the meat.
②Grill its surface for a very very short time.
③Put it in cold water with ice.
③Slice it very thinly. That's it!
Please dip it in soy sauce with some horseradish! Yummy x 2!!!
I love beef tataki, especially of Tajima ushi (Japanese Black)!
