Japanese A5 Wagyu | Kagoshima
The easiest and most predictable way to cook Japanese A5 Wagyu is to sear vertically-cut strips in a stainless steel or cast iron pan at medium-high heat. Trim a piece of fat from the edges of your steak and use it to pre-grease your pan. Cut the steak into 2 finger width strips and lay your first strip into your hot pan. Sear this piece for 15-20 seconds per side (depending on thickness) for a Medium Rare temperature. Examine your first cooked strip and make any necessary adjustments for personal preference. Season lightly with salt and enjoy!

This was simply the best beef I've EVER had and one of the most unique experiences I've had with food! After just one bite I was speechless with how intensely rich, flavorful, buttery, and downright delicious steak could be.
