Although the methods for cooking Wagyu are not complicated, the cooking process must be closely monitored to ensure a quality final result. Below are a few helpful tips to get started:

  • 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.
  • Remove steak 3-5° prior to reaching your desired temperature as it will continue to increase when resting.
