Indulge in the luxury of a Caroland Farms 100% Full Blood Wagyu Ribeye.

We want to thank private chef, Rahaf Amer, for providing these excellent tips for cooking the perfect Wagyu Ribeye without stress.

Cooking the perfect steak can be intimidating and stressful, especially when it comes to luxury cuts like Caroland Farms 100% Full Blood Wagyu Ribeye.

Here are 7 tips to help you cook the perfect Wagyu Ribeye without any stress!

Tip #1 – Do not let the steak sit out for too long before cooking. Other cuts of beef cook more evenly when you bring it to room temperature before cooking. But with 100% Full Blood Wagyu, it's best to take the steak out of the fridge and cook it right away. The longer you leave it sitting out, the more the fat will melt and cause it lose some of its rich flavor.

Tip #2 – Heat a cast iron pan on medium-high until hot. Our favorite is Butter Pat! In the video above we used the Joan, which is perfect for cooking steaks as it has a wide cooking surface, allowing you to cook multiple steaks at once. The cast iron material of the pan also ensures that heat is distributed evenly throughout the cooking surface.

Tip #3 – Do not add anything to the pan! The fat in the steak renders out and you get a perfect crust without adding any oils or butter to the pan. Simply salt and pepper the Ribeye and set it into the hot cast iron pan. The natural flavor of the Wagyu beef is enough to satisfy your taste buds. Seasoning the steak with salt and pepper will enhance the flavor without overpowering it.

Tip #4 – Leave the steak alone for 3-4 minutes per 1/2 inch thickness before flipping. Then cook for another 3-4 minutes for a perfect medium-rare. Resist the temptation to move the steak around the pan or poke it with a fork. This will prevent the steak from getting a good sear, which is crucial for developing a crispy crust and locking in the juices.

Tip #5 – Let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting. This allows the juices to redistribute within the meat, resulting in a more flavorful and juicy steak.

Tip #6 – Cut the steak across the grain into thin slices. This will make the steak more tender and easier to chew. Cutting across the grain means cutting perpendicular to the lines of muscle fibers in the meat.

Tip #7 – Cook the steak medium-rare for optimal flavor, but higher cooking temperatures are also acceptable. Wagyu beef is best enjoyed rare to medium-rare as it allows the natural flavors and textures of the meat to shine through. However, if you prefer your steak cooked to a higher temperature, it's still possible to achieve a delicious result with Caroland Farms 100% Full Blood Wagyu Ribeye.

BONUS TIP: When you pull your Wagyu Ribeye out of the pan you will have amazing Wagyu fat sizzling and waiting to be used. Don't let it go to waste, throw in some diced up potatoes and fry them up! It makes for an excellent side dish for that Wagyu Ribeye!

In addition to being extremely delicious, Caroland Farms 100% Full Blood Wagyu beef also offers some health benefits. It's rich in monounsaturated fats, which can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. It's also high in protein, iron, and vitamin B12, which are essential nutrients for maintaining good health.

Butter Pat Cast Iron pans are the perfect cooking tool for Wagyu beef as they are cast smooth, without any wasteful milling or grinding, making them nearly nonstick out of the gate. This allows you to cook with no added oils, resulting in a healthier meal. The pans are made in the USA using a unique manufacturing process that involves hand polishing each pan to create a smooth cooking surface. This process also makes the pans more durable ensuring that they will last for years to come.
