People always ask us what is one of the best ways to prepare a beautiful L.A. Farms Wagyu Steak. Here is one of our favourite classic ways.
Rosemary and garlic
We suggest using a wood fire, 🔥to get that extra flavour, but coals will also work. Use a cast iron skittle, the secret is to get the Wagyu to cook in it's own fats and juices.
Season the Wagyu steak with coarse salt and pepper. Keeping the favours simple to get the real Wagyu taste.
Add rosemary and whole garlic cloves to the skillet and place on fire. When the skillet is hot, add your steaks to get that nice seared crust. Cook on each side until desired temperature is achieved.
We recommend Medium Rare. For a 1-inch steak, place steak on a hot grill for 5 minutes. Turn and continue grilling for another 4 minutes to an internal temperature of 55 to 57 C. Let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
Serve with your desired sides.
Wagyu is actually quite easy to prepare as the meat actually cooks inside out as the marbling breaks down within the meat.
You do not need to use oil or butter when cooking, braaing, searing or grilling Wagyu as the marbling fat creates a natural oil that allows for the meat not to stick to the surface. On this note, Wagyu Tallow (reduced Wagyu fat, similar in texture to Gee) is a great cooking agent for Wagyu as well as other meats and is also used in the brazing of vegetables. A very healthy product.
