Wagyu Beef Recipe

Prep Time 45 mins
Total Time 1 hr
Servings 2 people


  • 2 8oz wagyu steaks
  • salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • black pepper (optional)


  • Remove Wagyu steaks from the refrigerator. Salt generously on all sides and let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat a cast-iron skillet with oil over medium-high heat.
  • Place steaks in the skillet, cooking for 2-3 minutes until the bottom side becomes golden brown.
  • Flip each steak to the other side, cooking for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Check the internal temperature with a digital meat thermometer. If cooking to medium-rare, the thermometer should read 130 degrees. If done, remove the steak and set them on a cutting board. If your steaks need more time, reduce the heat to low and continue cooking another minute or two until the thermometer reads the desired temperature.
  • Rest steaks under tented foil for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.
