Pan-Seared Wagyu Ribeye with Herb Butter

Here's a mouthwatering recipe for cooking Wagyu Ribeye steak:

Recipe: Pan-Seared Wagyu Ribeye with Herb Butter


  • 1 Wagyu Ribeye steak, about 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Fresh herbs of your choice (such as thyme, rosemary, or parsley)


  1. Remove the Wagyu Ribeye steak from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. This ensures even cooking.
  2. Pat the steak dry with a paper towel and season it generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Preheat a cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Once the pan is hot, add the steak and sear it for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. This creates a nice crust on the outside. Adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the butter and fresh herbs to the pan. Allow the butter to melt and baste the steak with the herb-infused butter for an additional 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  6. Using a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature of the steak. For medium-rare, it should read around 130°F to 135°F (55°C to 57°C).
  7. Once the steak reaches your desired doneness, remove it from the pan and let it rest for about 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute within the meat for optimal flavor and tenderness.
  8. Slice the Wagyu Ribeye steak against the grain into thick, juicy slices.
  9. Serve the pan-seared steak with a drizzle of the herb-infused butter from the pan, and pair it with your favorite side dishes like roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.

This recipe highlights the natural flavors of Wagyu Ribeye while achieving a perfect medium-rare doneness. The pan-searing method creates a beautifully caramelized crust and retains the steak's juiciness. The herb butter adds a burst of aromatic flavors that complement the richness of the Wagyu beef. Enjoy the luxurious experience of savoring a perfectly cooked Wagyu Ribeye steak.
