The specialty about Wagyu beef is its taste and texture. The high degree of marbling in Wagyu beef is what that differentiates it from other beef breeds. The marbling gets absorbed in to the muscle when cooked thus giving the meat its extra ordinary taste, tenderness and the 'melt in the mouth' feel. Therefore, care must be taken when cooking Wagyu. It should be cooked fast over a hot flame so that the fat in it doesn't melt away. Let's look at some of the mouthwatering recipes made from Wagyu beef.

The pan should be hot enough to give it a good sear that is to say 90 seconds on each side. Another type of beef steak is the one rubbed on both sides with coarse kosher or sea salt and freshly grounded pepper. Sear it in such a way that it is seared only on the outside. When the beef is properly seared, then remove from heat and brush both sides with olive oil. Heat it again until it is of desirable consistency.
