Important Notes:
- Defrost Properly: Thaw the Wagyu chuck roll fully in the refrigerator overnight for optimal texture.
- Wagyu Benefits from Searing: Its high marbling allows for high-heat methods to create delicious browning.
- Cook Whole or Slice: Depending on desired thickness, tackle the chuck roll whole or pre-slice it.

Roast Whole, Then Slice
1.Preheat: Oven to 120°C / 250°F.
2. Season: Pat the defrosted Wagyu dry and season simply.
3. Roast: Place on a rack in a baking pan. Roast until internal temperature is about 10°F below your desired doneness (around 52°C/125°F for medium-rare).
4. Sear: Heat a skillet over high heat. Sear the chuck roll on all sides to get a good crust
5. Slice Thinly: Cut across the grain into thin slices for serving.

Slice, then Sear
1. Slice: Cut the defrosted chuck roll right before cooking into steaks or slightly thicker slices (against the grain).
2. Pan-Sear: Heat a skillet or griddle over high heat, sear pieces 1-2 minutes per side for a nice crust, less if slices are thinner.
3. Grill: Preheat grill to high, sear 1-2 minutes per side.

- Cooking from Frozen is NOT Recommended: It will compromise the delicate texture of Wagyu.
- Thermometer is Helpful: Especially for the roast method, a thermometer ensures perfect doneness.
- Season Minimally: Let the rich Wagyu flavor shine through.

Rare (52-55°C / 125-130°F): Very soft texture, very red center. Delivers maximum Wagyu richness and tender texture.

Medium-Rare (57-60°C / 135-140°F): Highly recommended for chuck roll. Ideal balance of tenderness, juiciness, and incredible Wagyu flavor. Center is bright pink and warm.

Medium (63-65°C / 145-150°F): Slightly firmer texture, light pink center. Still tender and flavorful, but some of the luxurious melt-in-the-mouth quality is diminished.

Medium-Well (68-70°C / 155-160°F): Pinkish-gray center, noticeably firmer. Suitable if you prefer a more cooked-through steak, but some tenderness may be lost.

Well-Done (Above 71°C / 160°F): Generally not recommended as chuck roll, even with marbling, can become tough and dry when fully cooked through.

Hailing from Japan's Kyushu Island, Kumo-oh Wagyu boasts a stunning cherry red hue and a luxuriously buttery texture. But what truly sets it apart is its exceptional marbling. Unlike regular beef, Kumo-oh's fat begins to melt at a cool 77°F, infusing the meat with intense richness as it cooks. This prized Wagyu variety is renowned for its unmatched tenderness and flavor, a testament to the meticulous care these cattle receive. Their diet of high-quality grains and stress-free environment contributes to that melt-in-your-mouth texture and unforgettable taste.
