    Snake River Farms.

    Beautiful, beautiful steaks from the Pacific Northwest. Well-marbled prime beef steaks - rib eyes, t-bones, porterhouse steaks, filet mignon, New York strips.  Try the Cowboy Chop, a 2-pound bone-in ribeye (made for 2 people) french cut for a spectacular presentation on the plate.

    Snake River Farms also has a wonderful variety of American Kobe Beef cuts (Wagyu beef).  Their steak cuts are rated Gold (above Prime) with excellent marbling, hand cut, and aged 28 days. Wagyu is a very expensive beef...MORE but SRF pricing is quite reasonable.
