Today’s recipe is not just any recipe, it’s a recipe made to impress! New Zealand 100% grass-fed Wagyu from First Light has outstanding marbling, creating a tender, delicious steak! The flavor profile is unique with the sweet, nutty notes that Wagyu is famous for and an extra depth of flavor from being raised on grass.
New Zealand cattle is grass-fed year-round. The cattle are raised humanely without antibiotics or hormones and are allowed to roam and graze freely. This healthy, low-stress lifestyle for the animals translates into a healthy, tender steak.
When it comes to cooking grass-fed Wagyu, it couldn’t be easier! Because of the beautiful marbling and fat content in the Wagyu, there’s no need to cook the steak in butter or oil. All you need is a sprinkling of fresh cracked black pepper and sea salt to make this a seriously delicious steak dish.
Grass-fed Wagyu steaks can be cooked on the grill or on the stove in a cast iron skillet. All it needs is a quick sear on high heat, then to finish over medium heat until you reach your preferred temperature.
Mushrooms pair amazingly well with grass-fed Wagyu steaks. In this recipe, I paired a First Light Grass-fed Wagyu New York Strip Steak with Creamy French Onion Mushrooms. They really are a match made in heaven! Creamy, earthy, mushrooms, paired with nutty, grass-fed Wagyu from New Zealand, it really doesn’t get any better than that!
