Tips on Preparing A5 Wagyu
- Although you may wish to cook the Wagyu as one full steak, slicing into small 1-inch strips prior to cooking will deliver the best eating experience.
- Sprinkle the Wagyu with salt, and if desired, cracked black pepper before cooking. This is optional, as you may want to enjoy the natural flavor of the Wagyu unseasoned.
- Heat pan over medium high heat. No need to add any fat or oil, as the natural high fat and marbling of the Wagyu will slowly melt out and be more than sufficient for a golden-brown exterior.
- Add Wagyu to the pan sear for 1 t0 2 minutes on all sides.
- Remove wagyu from the pan. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and enjoying.
