About the Recipe

Wagyu beef is a high-quality, premium cut of meat that is known for its rich, buttery flavor and tender texture. If you're looking to cook a delicious steak, a Wagyu steak is a great option. Here's a simple recipe to get you started:


  • 1 Wagyu Steak

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Olive oil, for searing

  • Butter, for finishing (optional)

  • Fresh herbs, for garnish (optional)


Step 1

If your steaks are frozen, allow them to thaw in the fridge overnight. If they are refrigerated, allow them to rise to room temperature before cooking. This usually takes 30-60 minutes.

Step 2

Season each of the steaks with salt and pepper, and feel free to use as much or as little as you desire. If you have a favorite seasoning already, we encourage you to use it!

Step 3

Heat a pan to medium heat, and coat the pan with either olive oil, butter, or the fat you trim from your steaks. 


Sear the edges of each steak for 15 seconds. This will lock in the juices and marbling while you are cooking it to give you the most desirable Wagyu experience.


We recommend cooking your steaks to medium-rare, an internal temperature of 130°F in order to best experience the flavors and tenderness of Wagyu. 

Step 4

Cook your steaks for 1-2 minutes on each side, and remove from heat. Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes, as it will continue to cook after it is removed from heat.
