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.
Thin slice the A5 Wagy into individual, bite-sized portions. 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 minutes 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.
This Japanese A5 Wagyu Striploin has a rich and buttery, umami-packed flavor profile, with a tender, juicy texture that is sure to please even the most discerning palate. The texture is smooth and delicate. The overall eating experience is simply sublime.
