Today we are going to highlight one of our favorite topics – Wagyu Steak. Some people have a misconception that Wagyu beef is only for those “high dollar” clients and we are here to put an end to that myth. In our YouTube video, Chef Rick, gives a brief history on Wagyu steak and the reasons why we love it so much here at R-C Ranch. In addition, Chef Rick demonstrates how to cook and prepare various cuts of R-C Ranch products such as Ribeye, New York Strip, Denver Strip, and Sirloin. Likewise, he provides tips and tricks on what temperature is best for the steak, various cooking methods to use, what tools you need, and our most favorite, what side dishes to serve it with. We will list a few of our favorite pointers at the bottom, but for the complete list, refer back to the YouTube video. And always remember, life is short – eat the steak first.
- Know Which Cut of Meat You Like Best
Some of our go to cuts of meat for Wednesday steak night include the Denver Strip and Sirloin. However, everyone is different and there are endless choices and combinations you can choose from. Try mixing it up from time to time.
- Preparation is Key
When marinating and preparing your steak, be sure to add in your favorite seasonings and flavorings. At R-C Ranch, we like to let our steaks sit 10-15 minutes before cooking to develop the flavors and let the salt penetrate. And always remember, some of the greatest dishes simply come from the greatest ingredients.
- Cooking Methods
There are various ways you can cook your steak including on the grill, pan frying, in the oven, and so much more. No matter how you cook your steak, always remember to gather necessary kitchen utensils beforehand to help with the process. For instance, we like to keep oven mitts, tongs, and a thermapen to check our temperature.
- Side Dishes
While the beef may be the main attraction, you will also need delicious side dishes to pair along with it. A few of our favorites at R-C Ranch are mashed potatoes, grilled zucchini, grilled asparagus, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob, and rice.
