How to Cook Wagyu Beef
The methods for properly cooking A5 Wagyu beef aren't complicated. However, they are very specific. That's because the cooking process is one that needs to be closely monitored in order to ensure that the final result is luscious and tender.
The best way to cook Wagyu steak is to pan sear it. Here are a few of the key steps to follow and why they're so critical to the cooking process for authentic Wagyu beef:
- Before applying any heat, make sure you allow your A5 Japanese Wagyu to come to room temperature. This helps it to cook more evenly.
- You'll also want to apply salt to help draw out a bit of the moisture so you can get a nice golden-brown crust when you pan sear it.
- Heat your pan thoroughly before putting the beef in the pan. This helps with even cooking and getting a good outer sear.
Finally, don't forget the proper A5 Wagyu cook is rare to medium-rare. Overcooking could cause you to miss out on the juicy, tender mouthfeel that makes for a delectable dining experience.
