Cooking Instructions for Wagyu Beef Roasting Joints
Interestingly, Wagyu Beef Fat is unlike other beef fats in that it is low in mono-unsaturates, which means that cooking your roasties around the joint can almost be guilt free !
There are a couple of basic rules to bear in mind with Wagyu – it does definitely benefit from being brought to room temperature before you cook it, and also from resting afterwards. I recommend at least 20 minutes resting time, 30 for a large joint – it might seem excessive but it really is worth it. The meat relaxes away from the heat and the juiciness and tenderness is enhanced.
I also like to bring a heavy based pan to a decent temperature to sear the meat before popping it into the oven to roast. Cook at about 180 degrees C for 15 minutes / lb or 30 minutes / kg for a rare result, increasing that time for medium or well done results.
There is no need to use foil for the roast – but you might like to season it with a little salt and pepper before you begin the cooking process. Enjoy every mouth watering bite …. !
