How to Cook Wagyu Beef Tataki

Beef tataki refers to a Japanese method of preparing prime cuts of Wagyu beef, where the meat is lightly seared, sliced thinly and marinated similar to sashimi, in my version I use Yuzu Ponzu and a little sesame oil to finish.  This dish reminds me of a restaurant dish with its refined appearance and delicately paired flavours. 

  1. Bring the steak to room temperature then season with salt.
  2. Take a heavy based frying pan, add a splash of oil and on high heat evenly sear your steak for 1 minute on each side, it should be rare on the inside.
  3. Let it rest on a chopping board for a couple of  minutes then slice very finely and lay on a plate.
  4. Scatter over the raw mushroom, Daikon and ginger then drizzle the Yuzu ponzu all over then garnish with fresh shisu or watercress. 
To serve
  • Serve with Japanese noodles sprinkled with Furikaki, Wasabi and extra Yuzu Ponzu for dipping.
