British Waygu is certainly a nice steak, but it does not deserve to bear the name waygu.

Take steak out of fridge and let sit for half an hour. Pat your steak dry with kitchen roll. The dryer the steak the better. Put frying pan on a high heat. Put small amount of olive oil on steak. Season generously with salt on both sides. Once pan is red hot, place steak in and press down. It will smoke and that is fine. For a 1 inch steak sear for no more than 2 minutes either side Then take off heat, wrap in tin foil and rest for at least 5 minutes. Serve.

Just salt your steaks 30ish mins before you griddle them on a dry pan. Remember to wash of the salt and dry with kitchen towel before placing on the griddle.
Picked up some Waygu burgers last night, had them before, very nice - not as nice as the more expensive stuff obviously but worth a try if you're curious
Prefer their Aberdeen steaks, personally. But Aldi are very good for steaks (so too are Lidl)

Support your local butcher, especially in these times! Supermarkets have had all the glory already.

Exactly why I would not recommend salting first. You’ll draw out all the moisture, and end up with a tough steak. Unless it’s a decent thick steak, and you cook rare to medium. Everyone has there own method though.

Either put the salt on. immediately before searing, an hour before searing or better still 24 hours in the fridge. It’s what’s called osmosis. Less than 40 minutes and it will draw the juice out.

Yes I understand, but why would you want to draw all the moisture out?
Rump's a bit tough unless you tenderise it or cook it Sous Vide.

It can be but it can actually have more flavour. You can reverse sear it if you don’t have a water bath. In the oven for half an hour then sear it for 45 secs either side.
Stevey8317/06/2020 17:54

Yes I understand, but why would you want to draw all the moisture out?


What I mean is, if you salt it immediately before then the moisture isn’t drawn out. If you salt it and leave it for at least an hour before cooking, the moisture is drawn out then goes back in. Hard to believe but true. Google steak salt osmosis.
So that's where he went. I know he was big, but is there enough to go round?

Lolwut. You wash your steaks?! Blasphemy!
Going to Aldi first thing tomorrow so might get one of these. What’s the best way to cook steak so that it doesn’t end up chewy? I’ve got a Ninja Foodi which I grill them on normally but they end up on the chewier side

The best way is a reverse sear. Dry , then salt them heavily the night before then rest uncovered in the fridge on a rack with a plate/baking tray below. This will cause osmosis (draw water out, draws salt and water back in, leaving the steak juicier).

Take out an hour before (big steak, half hour for small steak). Bring up to your desired temperature in a low heat oven (use a temperature probe that stays in the meat and check internal temps online).

Once the steak hits the minimum of your desired temp range, blast in a smoking hot pan lightly oiled with rapeseed oil or similar (no butter, olive oil etc). A minute to 1.5 mins on either side should be fine.

Rest at room temperature for 10 mins or so, carve and serve

Is there decent fat content in the british wagyu?

First buy a half decent steak, get the griddle red hot, cook for a couple of mins either side, then rest... It's all about the rest... If you wrap in foil then rest for longer, 5 mins minimum without foil and about 8-10 in foil.. Soft, juicy steak...🥩🥩 😋😋😋😋
Had some of these last year and for rump/the price, they were excellent (assuming don't cook it well done and don't cut with the grain).

Keep it simple when you cook - pat dry and Season beforehand, small amount of rapeseed/higher smoke point oil in a decent heavy pan on a medium high heat, let it build some colour on each side (no need to play around with it), reduce the heat, chuck in some butter near the end and keep basting it. Cook to medium and rest for 10 minutes. When you eat it/cut it, go across the grain not with it!

Also, if you read anything science based about taking the meat out of the fridge x amount if time beforehand, it's pretty much pointless. The main thing is to make sure the the surface of the meat is dry as this will help with the browning and that's where a lot of the flavour is (can dry and salt overnight in the fridge if you're keen)
Google reverse sear cooking.

I've been doing the same for a while now. Makes the steak taste like butter! Can make even a poor piece of beef seem like top quality.
Adorablemunchkin17/06/2020 17:32

could you explain?


I may be wrong but i think its to do with the fact that wagyu in Japan can cost 50x times the price of the UK cuts. Over there they massage the wagyu cows and give them high quality food. It seems the UK wagyu isn't reared to the same standard and therefore carry the name but not the quality..

I don’t wash them?!?! I rinse under warmish water to remove the salt.

Haven't tried either just an observation that Aldi have competition and there is similar at identical price
Anyone notice the prices of Steaks have started to go up again I was getting sirloin steaks in Asda for £2.89 for 227g its doubled in price now?
