wagyu dish “It was absolutely amazing. I made my favorite lasagne recipe (I don’t mean to sound immodest, but I haven’t tasted a better lasagne anywhere, it’s a Marcella Hazan recipe and it’s the best one I’ve found), and the taste was like none I’d had before, the richness and pure tastiness the beef brought to the already fantastic recipe made this the best lasagne I’ve ever tasted or made. Thank you so much for the delicious beef, it’s making us very happy.”

Tips & Recipes

Please see below for basic tips on utilizing our American Wagyu beef and don’t forget to download some wonderful recipes for your next meal!

How to Store: Upon pick-up, place your beef immediately in your freezer, which will preserve the meat for up to one year.

How to Thaw: Place your vacuum-sealed beef in the refrigerator and allow it to thaw slowly for 24-48 hours. This is the best way to preserve its natural flavor and juiciness. If immediate thawing is required, submerge the entire package in a bowl of cold water.

How to Cook: Key recommendations to preserve our beef’s natural, rich, buttery flavor and silky juices are 1) to not overcook and 2) to not over season.
