Kobe Beef Steak

Kobe Beef Steak

Why not try a somewhat extravagant steak meal at home?
It's great for Christmas meals and other celebratory occasions.

Ingredients: 2-4 servings

Steak (I used Kobe Beef)
2 steaks (200 g each)
Bean sprouts
1 bag
Your favorite side vegetables
As needed
2 cloves, sliced
Beef fat (Wagyu)
Salt and pepper


1. Remove the meat from the fridge and let it return to room temperature on the counter for around 30 minutes!
2. Cut the fat off from the rest of the steak and set it aside. We will use this fat to stir-fry the vegetables.
3. This is the meat after it has been lightly scored and sprinkled with salt and pepper. The beef fat has been chopped into small pieces.
4. Heat a frying pan over high heat, and once it becomes hot, put in the beef fat. When the fat starts to render, put the garlic slices into fat.
5. Once the garlic has become fragrant, keep the pan at high heat, and place the steak in the pan, with the seasoned side down.
6. Once the meat has browned, lower the heat and wait for the juices to rise to the surface of the meat.
7. The right time to flip the meat is when the shiny red juices start to come to the surface of the meat. Only flip once!
8. Once you've flipped the meat, give it 10 seconds for rare steak, about 20 seconds for medium, and 30 seconds for well-done!
9. Using the beef fat you cut up earlier, and stir-fry the bean sprouts.
10. Place your side vegetables on the plate, and lay out a layer of bean sprouts. Place the sliced steak on top of the bean sprouts and it's ready to eat!

Story Behind this Recipe

I received an invitation for food reporters and cameramen from the Kobe Beef store called Tatsuya, and which started this for me! The first course was a Kobe Beef steak!
