Perfectly Cooking Thin Japanese Wagyu A4/A5 Ribeye


Elevate your culinary skills with our guide on cooking a thin Japanese Wagyu A4 or A5 ribeye from to medium perfection. Known for its luxurious marbling, Wagyu steak requires precise cooking to enhance its naturally rich flavors and tender texture.

Cooking Thin Japanese Wagyu Ribeye (A4/A5) to Medium:

1. Preparation:
Remove the Wagyu ribeye from the freezer and immediately unpack it. Do not thaw, as cooking from frozen helps preserve the steak's texture.

2. Heating the Pan:
Preheat your skillet over high heat until it's smoking hot. This extreme heat is crucial for achieving a quick, delicious sear.

3. Cooking:
Lay the steak in the hot pan. Cook each side for about 15-20 seconds. This brief cooking time is ideal for thin cuts, allowing the outside to caramelize while the inside reaches a perfect medium without overcooking.

4. Seasoning:
Season the steak with fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper immediately after cooking. This helps the seasoning stick to the meat and meld with the warmth for enhanced flavor.

5. Resting:
Allow the steak to rest for about 2 minutes. Resting helps the juices redistribute throughout the meat, ensuring each bite is as juicy and flavorful as possible.

Note for Striploin (Sirloin):

If cooking a thin Wagyu Sirloin, consider reducing the cooking time slightly. Sirloin typically contains less fat than ribeye, which means it can reach the desired doneness faster. Adjust the cooking time to about 10-15 seconds per side to achieve a perfect medium-rare.
