    Have some BEEF

    This will be more of an informative thread when i have the capacity to complete it, I promise..

    But as it goes, Thai beef and beef available have greatly improved in the past many years.

    Imported and local.

    take these babies for example



    KU beef, tasty striploins they were,

    I wont mention the imports yet. But how about a 250 bt per person spread ..



    And the result..





    The process



    I will follow up with prices, quality and availability of beefs at least here in chiang mai when I have more energy. But I am very happy and enthusiastic about the progression I have seen thus far.

    When undertaking a project of the magnitude, you must not forget the crew.



    Almost as essential as the beef..

    Damn fine looking Steaks, I fell in love with a pair of them in Tesco chill case and went back before I left the store and threw them in my basket,, best looking steaks I ever saw here, kind of like the ones you posted, kept them about a week in the meat compartment in my fridge, Char broiled them and Even my fucking Thai dog couldn't chew them.
    So much for beautiful meat in Thailand being edible, But I did buy a Rib eye once from my supplier that was Kings Kitchen and was as good as any beef I have bought, except for the Angus Stripling in my freezer now.

    Gourmet Market in Paragon has passable imported Aussie steaks.

    Where you are buying Thai beef that's actually edible (in steak form)?

    Rim Ping is of course the only place you would want to buy beef. They have imported rib eye, sirloin and striploin from New Zealand which I have found to be of the best quality. There is also the same selection available from Oz but i found found it a great deal more chewy and it is actually more expensize.

    Rib eye from New Zealand 790 bt per kilo, striploin 700 per kilo.

    Again it would have to be rim ping or if you are in bangkok possibly foodland. It is the KU Beef, at 700 per kilo for rib eye and about 590 for striploin it isnt much cheaper than the imported but is nealr as good which i was very surprised about.

    I have been quite happy with the so called "Thai French" beef in Villa. More expensive than the local stuff, but very nice, but, in my opinion, best eaten straight after buying. freezing it down loses the flavour somewhat.

    Agreed, their New Zealand tenderloin aged 32 days is delicious.

    I buy all my meat from Siam food services that now have an outlet store in CM Called HORECO, but I buy from them direct from BKK and I get wholesale prices.

    I pay about 500 for NZ ribeye and for the Thai I payed 270 a kilo and it was fine beef, her is a pic of it.

    Seal Point is the color of your Siamese cat, there are also chocolate, and blue points.

    well at least a little bit about Siamese cats as my first wife liked em and she bred seal points and some blue points when we were living in southern calif when we was young, there was a good market for them in those days and it kept her busy and she left me alone to do some drinking and whoring.
    But I put up with it as bad as I hate cats.

    Your cat looks a lot like our our late cat. She was 50% Burmese, 50% Siamese. They call them Tonkinese. She fell off the perch the day after this photo at 21 years.

    If that is the KU beef, I did buy some at Rim Ping Mee Chok but it was not as good as the Thai that I posted the pic of, and I only bought it once.
    I think now when I run out of Argentine Angus that is in my freezer I will go back to the aged NZ stuff , I can get it for less than 500 a kilo, I bought some Aussie to try awhile back [2 ribeye] but yesterday I ground it into ground beef and will use it for hamburgers and meat loaf as no one could chew it as it was.
