I found this presser from the good people at Snake River Farms.  When ever you  see the folks on Iron Chef: America cooking with Kobe or Wagyu beef this is who they are getting it from.  Just outstanding quality.

Snake River Farms American Kobe Beef featured on Iron Chef America TV Show

(Boise, ID) – Snake River Farms American Kobe Beef was used as the “secret ingredient” for the Food Network’s Iron Chef America TV show on Sunday, March 5.

The segment titled “Flay vs. MacMillan” pitted Iron Chef, Bobby Flay against Beau MacMillan, executive chef at Elements restaurant at Sanctuary Resort, Camelback, Arizona. Both chefs were presented with Idaho-raised Snake River Farms American Kobe beef as their secret ingredient in a very special meat based battle.

Each chef was required to create five dishes using American Kobe Beef within one hour. At the end of the show three guest judges evaluated the dishes on taste, originality and plate presentation.

Chef MacMillan created Kobe Steak Tartare with Chinese mustard brule, Kobe beef Ravioli, with marscapone cheese and ginger, Carpaccio style Kobe beef salad garnished with pickled lotus root salad, Rosemary pepper crusted tenderloin and Chile-rubbed Kobe beef rib eye with sweet potato puree.

Chef Flay created Breakfast Stack of Kobe Steak and Quail Egg, Surf & Turf Kobe Beef Filet & Crawfish Tails, Kobe Philly Cheesesteak, Spiced Rubbed Kobe Steak in Red Chile Sauce, Spanish-style Kobe beef with Cabrales bleu cheese and Rioja wine sauce.

Chef MacMillan won the contest by a very slim margin as judges were impressed with both chefs’ ability to come up with unique and very flavorful dishes in just one hour.

“We are honored that Iron Chef America chose to use our American Kobe Beef as the show’s secret ingredient,” said Jay Theiler, Snake River Farms president. “Both chefs did a terrific job creating original and creative culinary presentations that complimented American Kobe Beef’s natural flavors,” he continued.

Iron Chef America is based upon the format of a very popular Japanese television series using a kitchen stadium format and the famed “secret ingredient.” Each week, world-class chefs battle the legendary Iron Chefs of America for top honors.

The segment will air again five more times on the Food Network, March 09, 2006 10:00 PM ET/PT, March 10, 2006 2:00 AM ET/PT, March 11, 2006 7:00 PM ET/PT, March 11, 2006 11:00 PM ET/PT and March 12, 2006 3:00 AM ET/PT.
