Wagyu stew meat is extremely easy to prepare. Regardless of whether you’re making stew, stroganoff, chili con carne, or goulash, it is generally cooked in the same way.
Season the beef cubes with salt & pepper (some recipes call for lightly dusting them with flour as well). In a well oiled pan over high heat, sear the beef on all sides until the cubes develop a brown crust. Take care not to burn the fond (browned bits on the bottom of the pan).
Remove the seared meat, add your vegetables and sweat/sauté them to soften, then deglaze the pan with wine, stock, or another flavorful liquid. Add dried herbs and spices as desired, return the meat to the pan and stew until tender. If you’d like, you can further season your stew with fresh herbs once it is close to finishing cooking.
