Cooking Wagyu – Searing

With a steak this good, you need to make sure you cook it right. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to get your Wagyu steak from the Oliver’s Meat Department to your dinner table and have it taste delicious! This is a fast and easy way to cook steaks 1.25″ or thinner.

Ingredients

  • Wagyu steak, 1.25" or thinner
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  1. SEASON - Heat a heavy skillet (cast iron is ideal) over medium heat until hot. Add a light coat of vegetable oil to the skillet. Season top side of steaks with salt and pepper.

  2. SEAR - Place steaks, seasoned side down, in skillet and sear 4 to 5 minutes until nicely browned. Season the top side of the steak with salt and pepper. If the steak sticks to the skillet, it’s not ready to turn. Wait until it releases on its own.

  3. FLIP - Turn steaks over and allow to cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. After 2 to 3 minutes, use a thermometer to test the thickest part of the steak. When the temperature reaches the desired level, remove from the skillet. Remove steaks from a skillet and serve
