There are certain things you should know about cooking Wagyu beef. If you’ve ever had the great opportunity to work with Wagyu cattle or eat Kobe beef then you’ve come across an opportunity that is quite rare. Although, you may have been to restaurants in your own country that consists of meals and stir fries with the Kobe meat it’s quite likely that it isn’t the real thing. Did you know that it’s actually illegal for the meat to be shipped out of the country of Japan into America, due to the “Hand and Foot Disease” prevention law implemented by the FDA. It’s highly unlikely that there are many restaurants that serve the real thing that is unless they have access to a special farm that raises these cattle.
If you do have access to the beef and you want to know how to cook it- then do the following to get the supreme and rich taste from a very rare meat. Cooking Wagyu beef means that you are going to keep the authentic flavor that it’s supposed to have – half of the preparation comes from taking care of these cows and feeding them special grains. Believe it or not, the farmers even give them cold beer in the summer time to give them the “fatty flavor” that you taste. You can actually see the streaks of fat if you look closely at the beef. Do the following to cook the perfect Wagyu Beef meal and you will find that it’s the best meat you’ve ever tasted. (That is, if you cook it correctly.)
The Sacred Meat
This is considered a delicacy in Japan and there is a limited number of high end restaurants that will serve this meat. If they do, then they will serve it in small portions being that it’s very expensive to purchase and serve. It’s very likely that they will serve it in a stir fry dish to preserve the amount of meat that they have. It’s highly unlikely that you can purchase this meat in the US unless you have connections with a small farm that is raising Wagyu beef.
Note, that there are many restaurants that also claim to serve this meat when in actuality they are probably serving a meat that has a similar taste but is not the same thing. Make sure that you’re not overspending on a meat that isn’t authentic.
