Japanese A5 Wagyu is as much an experinece as it is a meal. To prepare this luxurious ingredient, first allow the meat to rest and come to room temperature before cooking. Lightly season with salt to help bring out the natural umami flavor. Alternatively, you can dip each bit in a fine sea salt of your choice before eating. Heat a smooth-surfaced pan such as a stainless steel pan to medium high heat. Place each piece on the pan without any cooking oil. A5 Wagyu has enough oil already to cook directly on a naked pan. Sear each size for approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side and remove. We recommend cooking each piece individually to share the exprience with others. To elevate the experinece, try a variety of fine sea salts, a high quality soy sauce or some wasabi. For a decadent expreince, try a bite of A5 Wagyu together with a piece of raw uni or some fine caviar. The interplay of flavors is extraodinary.

Chef's Serving Suggestions
When it comes to side dishes to pair with Japanese A5 Wagyu, think leafy greens and robust vegetable flavors. Try serving roasted brussels sprouts, carrots or sauteed spinach. Or how about placing a thin slice of fried garlic or laying out a variety of sea salts, fine soy sauces and even wasabi for dipping, as they do in Japan? Whatever you do, remember: Japanese A5 Wagyu is as much an experience as it is a meal.

One of the best steaks I’ve had. I’ve had American Waygu, Australian Waygu, Japanese Waygu, Kobe you name it. This was probably the best if not the best cut I’ve had.

A5 vs. A4 Wagyu

In Japan, A4 and above define the luxury standard for Wagyu, including Kobe beef. A4, the choice of true connoisseurs, offers a balanced experience with deeper beefy flavors without overwhelming richness. A5, the pinnacle of Japanese Wagyu, boasts unmatched richness, satisfying with just a slice or two. It's a prized delicacy and a decadent treat for special occasions.
