The Juicy Details
How tender is a zabuton steak? When translated from Japanese, zabuton means “little pillow.” Once you’ve experienced a Good Silver Steak Co. American Wagyu Zabuton Steak, you’re going to need a pillow because this cut of beef is what dreams are made of. Sensationally melt-in-your-mouth, marbled, and packed with rich, savory beefiness, these beauties provide the ultimate meat experience.
This luscious cut is perfect for an in-house steakhouse experience. Wagyu Zabuton is more than capable of shining on its own but can also be used to create the best steak sandwich you’ll ever experience. Made from the same section as our Denver Steak, Good Silver butchers our wagyu zabuton a little thinner and more square, giving it the trademark pillow look.
To start your preparation, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, remove your wagyu zabuton steak from the refrigerator, generously season with salt, and let it come to room temperature for about 45 minutes to an hour. These steaks are perfect for high heat grilling or skillet searing.
- Get your grill or cast iron skillet extremely hot and add a bit of oil that can withstand the heat.
- Cook for no more than two minutes per side and remove from the grill.
- Move steaks to your preheated oven until they reach an internal temperature of 135 degrees.
- Let your wagyu zabuton steaks rest for at least five to 10 minutes to let all those flavorful juices redistribute.
Consider crunchy, lighter sides for a cut as rich and flavorful as Good Silver’s American Wagyu Zabuton. Sauteed mushrooms, grilled asparagus, green beans, and broccoli seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper, olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon juice dance on your palette like an exuberant child splashing in puddles.
A glass of hearty Chianti, cabernet, Bordeaux, or syrah beautifully balances the sophistication of wagyu zabuton. Imperial stouts and high-IBU IPAs add an extra punch of flavor for those looking for bold-on-bold delight. An ice-cold martini served to your liking is sure to elevate your wagyu zabuton experience. Now, all that’s left to do is sip, slice, and savor.
