“We are honored to have been serving Kerwee Wagyu at Nobu Los Angeles for many years. Our customers expect the finest quality and Kerwee Wagyu consistently delivers exceptional flavor and a smooth silky texture. The Kerwee difference is the real beef flavor, which reminds me of my beef eating experience as a child.”

Follow these instructions to guarantee perfect cooking results every time
Defrosting the meat:
Slowly is the key. Defrost the meat on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator overnight. Ensure the meat is resting on a plate to avoid contamination with other foods in the fridge. Defrosting on a kitchen bench is not recommended as it can encourage growth of harmful bacteria.
Preparing the meat:
Once the meat is completely defrosted, remove from packaging and carefully pat off excess blood from all sides of the steak. Bring steaks to room temperature at least 30 minutes prior to cooking. Option: salt your meat well prior to cooking - we recommend using kosher salt only for this as its not overly strong.
It is not recommended to use any oil when cooking the steaks, as Kerwee Wagyu is naturally has a high fat content that provides adequate fat in the pan/grill for the steak to be cooked. However if choosing to cook with oil, directly oil the meat - not the pan or grill - to avoid flame ups.
Cooking the meat:
Ensure the pan/grill is thoroughly hot to avoid the steak from becoming stuck. Follow the cooking times in the table below for your desired steak doneness. We recommend all Kerwee steaks are cooked Medium - Rare/Medium for maximum texture and flavor. Do no turn the meat over until it comes away easily from the pan/grill, and allow the sides of the meat to caramelize. Grill marks increase flavor, and caramelization is the natural meat sugars burning thus creating flavor. Chard (burnt) meat is not the same and will leave a horrid carbon flavor in your mouth.
Resting the meat:
We recommend resting the meat for half the amount of time you have cooked it. This will allow the blood and juices to flow back through the entire steak. If you cut a steak and the blood runs out this means it is under rested.
Slicing / carving the meat:
Always cut against the grain, through the fibers. Finally, serve with a sprinkle of Murray River Salt flakes.
