Keep your Kobe beef coulotte steaks frozen until you are ready to cook them.
Meat Thawing Tips
Cook wagyu coulotte/sirloin cap steaks as you would normal beef coulotte steaks. Coulotte steaks offer good flavor and decent tenderness naturally, but both can be improved through the use of marinades (basic oil marinade recipe & tutorial
). Minced fresh herbs
used as a rub are another favorite way to enhance this cut’s flavor.
Whole coulotte steaks are best grilled or roasted, but they can also be cubed for use as Kobe kebab meat
or cut into strips for stir frying or threading onto skewers.
For a tasty appetizer, roast a coulotte steak and slice it thinly. Wrap each slice around lightly steamed, thin vegetables (it’s particularly good with crisp asparagus or fiddlehead ferns
) and serve with an Asian-style soy-ginger dipping sauce.
