cooked wagyu beef yakiniku


Yakiniku is the name for barbecue in Japan. Because it focuses on drawing out the natural flavour of the meat, many cuts of beef do not come marinated or pre-seasoned. Additional seasoning is often no more than a little sea salt, a squeeze of lemon or a light drizzle of Japanese 'tare' (dipping sauce) after the meat has been grilled. I like to brush the meat with a base 'tare' as it cooks, if you do this add the Furikake to the dressing after you have used the 'tare' as a glaze.

  2. Remove to cool then separate ⅓ for brushing over the meat then fold through Furikake into the remainder for the table dipping sauce
  3. Season the steak then take a heavy based frying pan or BBQ set for direct grilling and over a high heat and sear for 1 to 2 minutes on each side brushing the steak with a little 'tare' marinade as it cooks.
  4. Leave to rest for a minute or two before carving.
