How to Cook Wagyu Beef Teriyaki

The true definition of the word teriyaki means, “a Japanese dish of meat or fish that is grilled or broiled after being flavoured in a seasoned soy sauce marinade”. Typically chicken is skewered and grilled but here we take Wagyu beef which lends itself beautifully to the sweet and salty glaze. Cooking over natural wood at high temperature will help recreate the perfect balance of sweet, salt and smoke. 

  1. In a saucepan bring all Teriyaki ingredients to a simmer except the oil and cornflour, once sugar has dissolved whisk in corn flour mix then take off heat and stir in the sesame oil.
  2. Divide the Teriyaki marinade into half, using one half to brush onto the steak and reserving the rest for a dipping sauce to be placed on the table.
  3. Take a heavy based frying pan, or BBQ set for direct grilling and over a high heat sear the steak 2 minutes each side.
  4. Slice the beef across the grain to serve. 
To serve:
  • Serve with the reserved dipping sauce, sesame fried greens and steamed Japanese rice sprinkled with Furikake.
