Cooking Wagyu – Steakhouse Style

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 the classic way to prepare a steak. This method works best for steaks 1.5″ and thicker.


  • Wagyu steak of choice, at least 1.5" thick
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. SEASON - Heat a heavy skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add a light coat of vegetable oil to the skillet. Season steaks with salt and pepper.

  2. SEAR - Place steaks in hot skillet and sear for 4 minutes, turning once. If a steak sticks to the skillet, it’s not ready to turn. Wait until it releases on its own.

  3. COOK - Place skillet in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 20 minutes depending on desired doneness. Turn once half way through the cooking time. Remove from oven when preferred internal temperature is reached. [Rare: 110*F, Medium Rare: 120*F, Medium: 130*F, Medium-Well: 140*F]

  4. REST - Remove steaks from a skillet and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. The steaks will continue to cook and the temperature will rise about 5 degrees.
