Our first meal of the year: Japanese A5 Wagyu Ribeye from Pursuit Farms

We wanted to start the year off with a special meal. A thanks to food vlogger Lisa Nguyen, we were able to do just that when she gifted us with some Japanese A5 Wagyu ribeyes from Pursuit Farms.  We’ve had Japanese Wagyu before, but only a small tiny bite of it. This was our first time getting to fully feast on this meaty goodness.

We opened one of the ribeyes and placed it on a plate. I think I stared at it for a solid thirty minutes. The marbling was incredible.

Before cooking the ribeye, we put a light coating of salt on it and then let it sit in the fridge for about an hour.

After the hour, we placed it on the cast iron for 2-3 minutes on each side to ensure it was rare upon completion.

The ribeye was a quick and easy cook. Here’s the final product.

We grabbed a knife and cut into the ribeye. Each bite was incredibly tender, buttery and delicious. It was easily the best steak we’ve had in forever and just like that, the bar for the best meal of the year was set high from the start.

Once again, we can’t thank Lisa enough for our Japanese A5 Wagyu ribeyes from Pursuit Farms. We have one more left. What should we do next?

Happy Dining,
