Wagyu beef is so popular and costly is that it is a special kind of beef which has a high density of marbling. Wagyu is a type of beef that comes from a specific kind of cattle in Japan, which is taken care of very well for such a purpose. Wagyu is considered by most beef lovers as the best USDA prime steaks online and in the meat market. If you want to savor the flavor of Wagyu but do not have any clue on what to cook, you can try cooking grilled Wagyu with mushrooms. It is very simple with the following ingredients:
4 Wagyu beef rump steaks
200 grams of sliced shiitake and oyster mushrooms
1 sliced garlic clove
2 sliced spring onions
5 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
1 tablespoon of chopped thyme
1 tablespoon of chopped oregano
1 tablespoon of lime juice
Sea salt and black pepper
Step 1: First remove the packaged Wagyu steaks from the refrigerator and unpack them. Set the unpackaged meat on a clean plate and let it sit until it reaches room temperature.
Step 2: Pre-heat the grill or pan and while you are waiting, season the Wagyu with salt and pepper. Once the grill reaches the desired temperature, place the seasoned beef on the cooking surface. Cook the steak to your desired temperature, preferably medium rare. Cooking times will vary based on several factors, including your grill and the thickness of the steaks.
Step 3: Remove the beef from the heat and let it stand and cool off for at least five minutes or so. While you are letting it cool, heat two tablespoons of oil in a wok and then put the mushrooms, garlic, and spring onions in it. Stir them periodically until the mushrooms turn soft and once they soften up, you can then add the herbs, lime juice and remaining olive oil.
Step 4: Cook the mushrooms and other ingredients until they are done and then remove it from the heat. Season the steaks with salt and pepper, to taste. If you are not going to serve your steaks right way, you might want to reheat the beef so that you are able to serve it hot.
