Wagyu Ribeye Filet Steaks
Twelve 8oz Steaks
Ribeye fillets are the perfect choice for people who love the big, bold flavor of the ribeye cut, but prefer not to eat the thick veins of outer fat. These unusual steaks are ribeyes that have been trimmed of their outer muscle and fat, so that only the large center muscle (aka the “eye”) remains.
This wagyu beef (aka Australian kobe beef, kobe-style beef) is from a breed of cattle descended from Japanese herds, but raised in Australia. It is specially raised to increase its percentage of fat marbling to consistently high levels. More marbling leads to more flavor, tenderness, and moisture as the fat melts during the cooking process. Thus, wagyu ribeye fillets are both more flavorful and more tender than those cut from conventional beef.
RECIPES & TIPS
Cook wagyu ribeye filet steaks as you would conventional beef steaks. Many Kobe beef aficionados believe that the best way to prepare wagyu steaks is to quickly sear them on a grill or hot preheated cast-iron skillet until a crust develops on the outside, leaving the center soft and barely cooked.
