Preparing Wagyu Beef: General Tips

When you want to cook our British White or Akaushi wagyu beef, it’s quite similar to other types of beef. With the high levels of marbling in Akaushi, the beef delivers a juicy flavor, and the meat is quite forgiving.

Here are a few tips to help you bring out the full flavor of our cuts.

  • Choose a cut to match your recipe or method
  • Season the meat with salt and pepper
  • Preserve the natural flavor by not over-seasoning
  • Sear the meat on both sides before you move it to the oven or moderate heat
  • Use a meat thermometer, inserting it through for an accurate measure
  • Avoid overcooking or drying out the meat
  • Remove the cut from heat right before it cooks fully to preserve juices and distribute them evenly
