Tips for Planning Out Your Super Bowl Meals
Whether you're hosting a big game viewing party or attending one, planning is the first step in putting out irresistible food. Determine how many people you're cooking for, whether the dishes are best served cold or hot, and if you're putting out a spread of shareables or having a sit-down meal. These factors all play a crucial role in buying ingredients and delegating duties.
The last thing you want is to run out of food and be left scrambling to find a pizza place that doesn't have a backlogged delivery system. So make sure you ask your friends and family to RSVP in plenty of time for you to get what you need for game day. You'll also want to decide what type of Super Bowl meal you plan to assemble.
Gathering Around Table for a Super Bowl Meal
If you're having a quaint sit-down dinner before everyone takes their places on couches and recliners, an American Wagyu beef steak, brisket, or roast is the ultimate way to kick off a party before kickoff. One of the only drawbacks to this is finding a way to please everyone. However, a flight pack consisting of multiple cuts makes it easier to offer something for everyone.
Potluck Style Super Bowl Meals
An ample buffet of fan-favorite Super Bowl snacks and appetizers is always a crowd-pleaser. If you're asking guests to bring a dish, share with everyone what others are planning to bring. We all love chicken wings and pigs in a blanket, but it's not much of a spread if everyone brings the same thing.

Feel free to check out those articles for more in-depth suggestions, but these quick and easy tips certainly will help in preparing wagyu steaks and other cuts:
- Bring to room temperature: Take your beef out of the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before you cook it. This helps the cut cook more evenly for consistent medium-rare doneness.
- Pan sear for a delicious crust: When cooking wagyu beef, you can choose between multiple cooking methods. No matter how you prepare wagyu steaks, the best way to get an irresistible crust is by searing it in a cast iron skillet.
- Use a meat thermometer: Simply inserting a thermometer into your beef helps ensure you never over or undercook a piece of meat again. Just monitor the temperature until it reaches the doneness level you prefer.
- Give the meat a rest: After preparing your American Wagyu steak for an unforgettable Super Bowl meal, loosely cover it with aluminum foil and let it rest for five minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, making each bite a juicy, savory blast of flavor.
