Today’s post is sponsored by Beef + Lamb New Zealand and First Light.
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!

We’re only one week into March and this month has already been crazy with travel! I started the month in Gainesville, FL at the “Cox Smart Home” event with Cox Communications, where I showed local media and guests how to make their kitchen “smart” using Cox high speed internet.
Now if you’re wondering how to use high speed internet in the kitchen to do more than just browse WhitneyBond.com for new recipe inspiration, I’m here to tell you, there are lots of fun ways to do so!
At the “Cox Smart Home” event I shared with guests how to use my Amazon Alexa App “Whitney Bond’s Recipe Search” which will verbally walk you through any recipe on WhitneyBond.com totally hands free! I also shared how to use WiFi devices in the kitchen, like this WiFi Crock Pot and WiFi Coffee Maker.
The event was so much fun, and I’m already gearing up to join them for another “Cox Smart Home” event in Phoenix next month!
