Jac Wagyu Rib-eye Lip off/Cube Roll MB3+ removes the "lip" (spinalis dorsi), a prized and tender section, to concentrate on the core of the ribeye known for its rich beef flavor. While you miss out on some of the "lip's" exceptional tenderness, the Wagyu breed steps in with its legendary marbling. This marbling score of MB3+ indicates a moderate level of fat within the muscle, ensuring the steak is still incredibly flavorful and delivers a noticeable tenderness boost compared to regular beef. You get the best of both worlds: a classic cut with the luxurious tenderness Wagyu is famous for.

Important Notes:
- High Heat and Quick Cooking: This Wagyu cut benefits from high-heat methods for a beautiful sear without overcooking the interior.
- Don't Overcook: Ribeye is best cooked to medium-rare or medium for maximum tenderness and juiciness.

1. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet (cast iron is ideal) or grill pan over high heat.
2. Sear the ribeye for 2-3 minutes per side for a deep brown crust.
3. Reduce heat to medium and cook for a further 2-4 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired doneness.

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Grill the ribeye for 3-5 minutes per side for a lovely char.
3. Move the steak to indirect heat and close the grill lid. Continue cooking until desired doneness.

Reverse Sear:
1. Preheat oven to a low temperature of 100-120°C (225-250°F).
2. Slow-roast the ribeye on a wire rack on a baking sheet until about 10-15 degrees below your final desired temperature.
3. Heat a skillet or grill pan to very high heat. Sear for 1-2 minutes per side to get a beautiful crust.

- Thermometer is Your Friend: A meat thermometer is crucial for Wagyu. Aim for medium-rare (54-57°C/130-135°F) or medium (60-63°C/140-145°F)
- Resting Is Essential: Let the ribeye rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing to ensure maximum juiciness.
- Slice Against the Grain: Cut against the grain for the most tender bites.

Rare (48-52°C / 120-125°F): Soft texture, very red center. For those who enjoy Wagyu's melt-in-the-mouth richness.

Medium-Rare (54-57°C / 130-135°F): Highly recommended for Wagyu. The perfect balance of tenderness, juiciness, and the buttery flavor Wagyu is known for. Center is bright pink and warm.

Medium (60-63°C / 140-145°F): Slightly firmer texture, light pink center. Still tender and flavorful, but some of the luxurious melt-in-the-mouth feel may be diminished.

Medium-Well (65-68°C / 150-155°F): Pinkish-gray center, noticeably firmer. Not generally recommended for Wagyu unless you truly prefer your steak more cooked through.

Well-Done (Above 68°C / 155°F): Not recommended for Wagyu. The high-fat content can lead to a tough and dry texture at this temperature
