Season Mishima Reserve US Kobe beef with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Keep the seasoning simple. Grill over open flames or in a preheated cast iron skillet. Wagyu beef should never be cooked more than medium rare. Ideally, the beef should be cooked so that the outside is crispy and the inside is rare to medium rare. WARNING: Prolonged exposure to high heat will melt the fat in the meat's internal structure, resulting in a dry piece of meat.
Mishima Reserve Wagyu beef ships frozen. The freshness and integrity of the meat is preserved in the freezing and thawing process because of its high fat content. Once thawed, the steaks should be consumed within a week. Remove from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before cooking.
