Answer

Kobe beef-beef from the black Tajima-ushi breed of Wagyu cattle, raised according to strict tradition in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. Kobe beef is renowned for its flavour, tenderness, and fatty well-marbled texture.

In accordance with popular belief, the cattle are fed a beer a day, and they are massaged with sake daily and brushed for setting fur, and fed on grain fodder.When the cattle are ready for slaughter, they are slaughtered in a humane and painless customary way in order to keep the meat tender and at its highest flavor.

They are approximately $100 a pound.

The Family Steak is the cheapest cut available from the butcher on the day you buy it. Generally it is the most economical cut for a large family.

As listed in wikipedia.com Types of beef steaks * Chateaubriand steak - Usually served for two, cut from the large head of the tenderloin. * Chuck steak - A cut from neck to the ribs. * Cube steak - A cut of meat, usually top round, tenderized by fierce pounding with a mallet or mechanical blades. * Filet mignon - A small, choice cut from the small end of the tenderloin; the most tender and most expensive cut by weight. * Flank steak - From the underside. Not as tender as steaks cut from the rib or loin. * Flat iron steak - A cut from under the shoulder blade. * Hanger steak or (French) onglet - a steak from near the center of the diaphragm. Flavorful, and very tender towards the edges, but sinewy in the middle. Often called the butcher's tenderloin or hanging tender. * Rib eye steak - A rib steak consisting of the longissimus muscle and the spinalis or cap. This comes from the primal rib used to make prime rib which is typically oven roasted American cuts of beef. as opposed to grilled as is typical with rib eye. A popeseye steak is cut from this. * Rump steak, round steak or (French) rumsteak - A cut from the rump of the animal. A true grilling steak with good flavor though it can be tough, if not cooked properly. * Sirloin steak - A steak cut from the hip. Also tends to be less tough, resulting in a higher price tag. * Outside Skirt steak - A steak made from the diaphragm. Very flavorful, but also rather tough. * Inside skirt steak - A steak from the flank or bottom sirloin similar in appearance but more tender than the outside. * Strip steak - (also known as Delmonico, Kansas City strip, New York strip, and Entrecôte), A high-quality steak cut from the strip loin, a muscle that is relatively low in connective tissue, so it is particularly tender. * T-bone steak and Porterhouse - A cut from the tenderloin and strip loin, connected with a T-shaped bone (lumbar vertebra). The two are distinguished by the size of the tenderloin in the cut. T-bones have smaller tenderloin sections, while the Porterhouse - though generally smaller in the strip - will have more tenderloin. T-bone and Porterhouse steaks are among the most expensive steaks on a menu because of the large individual portion size. Several other foods are called "steak" without actually being steaks: * Salisbury steak - Not a steak, but rather a patty from ground beef made with onions, usually bread crumbs, and occasionally mushrooms. Also known as "Hamburger Steak" or "Minute Steak" (due to its shorter cooking time). It is the least expensive cut of steak, usually because it is made of lower grade meat. * Steak tartare or tartar steak - Finely chopped fillet of beef, onion, parsley, and capers. Often this dish is uncooked with a raw egg yolk on top.

A porterhouse steak is basically a oversized T-bone steak. It is a thicker cut of beef. A porterhouse, if cut in half, will make a T-bone and a New York Strip steak.
