Q: How should I season my Japanese Wagyu Striploin?
We recommend seasoning with sea salt (e.g. sel gris), to taste. Freshly cracked black pepper is also a good complement. Season lightly so you can savor and enjoy the flavor of the meat itself. Alternatively, you can season after cooking the meat. The choice is up to you.
Q: Does Japanese Wagyu Striploin eat differently than a typical Angus NY Strip Steak, due to containing the spinalis muscle?
The spinalis muscle doesn't affect the overall chew and taste of the Japanese Wagyu striploin, but the steak itself will be much more tender and rich than a typical Angus NY Strip due due to the extreme marbling and high oleic fat content.
