Cooking Unami Olive Wagyu Beef
Unami Wagyu beef is special so you want to make sure you cook it in such a way that every single drop of fantastic flavor is preserved.
The process starts by removing the beef from the fridge about a half-hour before you intend on starting dinner. Giving the meat a few minutes to warm decreases any negative impact cooking has on the tenderness and overall flavor.
This is the ideal time to season your meat. Seasoning it in advance rather than waiting until just before you start cooking allows moisture and the seasoning to settle into the meat.
When you judge that the Unami Wagyu beef is half-cooked, remove it from the heat and give it a few minutes to rest. This rest time helps prevent the meat from becoming too dry.
The rest period ensures that the meat is cooked evenly.
