Pine Bluff, Arkansas, April 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kobe Beef is the world’s most famous meat and extremely rare. With only a tiny fraction of restaurants nationwide licensed to serve authentic Kobe beef, Red Oak Steakhouse located in Pine Bluff, Arkansas is proud to be awarded this amazing opportunity.

Thousands of American restaurants sell a product called “wangus”, which is a hybrid of domestically raised Wagyu breeds and common Angus. But they call it Kobe, in spite of numerous lawsuits to alter the practice.

Director of Food and Beverage, Todd Gold said, “The Kobe difference is in the genetics. With Kobe, there are no big chunks of fat like on traditional steaks. Rather, the fat is evenly dispersed throughout the muscle in a type of spiderweb of ultra-thin veins. As a gift to our patrons, we are actually pricing Kobe beef without our standard food-cost- markup, to allow everyone to enjoy this prized meat.”

Authentic Kobe is uniformly pink, because of the highly integrated blend of meat and fat. It is also much healthier than non-Kobe beef. Real Kobe beef is always boneless, usually served as a strip, ribeye, or filet and the price typically begins at $20 an ounce. Any so-calledKobe steak selling for less than $80 - $100 is most likely an imposter.

“Our Red Oak Steakhouse, which is located inside Pine Bluff’s Saracen Casino, is rapidly becoming a favorite of genuine foodies throughout Arkansas, and the region. We’re excited to be chosen as one of only 38 American restaurants, and the first in the South, to have the honor of serving true Kobe beef!”, stated Carlton Saffa, Market Manager for Saracen Casino Resort.

Quapaw Nation Chairman Joseph Byrd said this, “Authentic Kobe beef is extremely rare and sets the global standard for quality. With Red Oak asthe first in Arkansas and the first in the South to be Kobe-licensed,this is a proud moment for Saracen Casino Resort and the Quapaw Nation. Kobebeef is synonymous with world-class cuisine, and we’reextremelyhappy to offer an enhanced,fine-dining experience to patrons of the Saracen.”
