    ^ Yes, I believe that you are right. Just before the lockdown a fair number of beef producers came up from Korat as our local Robinson set aside a large space outdoors for them to exhibit and sell their meat. all supposed to be Wagyu
    I can't rmemebr the prices. I am not a big meat eater. It was very expensive. The wife and I tried some samples from a couple of the exhibitors. The verdict - far from great and certainly not worth the price. All business cards and flyers thrown away before leaving for home

    yes larry there does seem to be more beef sellers advertizing lately,this one where the wife bought some has just opened a resturant in the mall here in korat,so its try first,my sirloin was very tender good taste and so was the cheap cut the wife bought for stir fry.but after reading about the scam in the bkk.post,pork soaked in cows blood and sold as beef,a lot of the local public in bkk.reported it.i would expect a few muslims will be sick as pigs.

    I have tried a myriad of Thai raised beef and it is all utter crap quite frankly. Its like chewing on an old baseball glove. The flavor is terrible as well. My dogs take it away and gnaw on it and thank me for trying it another time. I have tried marinating it as well and still garbage. The other thing here is they cut the steak paper thin so good luck enjoying a medium rare steak. I go to Tops or Villa and have them cut my steaks to the proper thickness. They are either USDA or Australian 200 day aged grass fed.

    Thai beef might be good in a stew after cooked for 12 hrs.. maybe....

    I was quite OK with the Thai French beef, the cattle are a Brahmin/ Charolais cross. Otherwise, stick to fillet- the last cut of beef I would buy (and thus, pay for) in Oz is fillet incidentally. Girly. But given the low fat content, stringy nature of Thai beef, it's basically the only cut that works for a steak.

    Topper, or anyone who can only get their hands on a lower quality beef should watch this. Very interesting.
