Wagyu sirloin steak is an irresistible cut of beef that's certain to make any meat lover's mouth water. One of the benefits of a wagyu sirloin steak is the price. With top sirloin, you get a tender cut of meat with loads of rich, beefy flavor but at a fraction of the cost of other wagyu cuts.
Where do I get a Wagyu Sirloin Steak?
American Wagyu beef can occasionally be found at higher-end supermarkets. But I've found the best way to purchase Wagyu beef is directly from the farm.
Snake River Farms, a pioneer of American Wagyu conveniently delivers beef directly to your door and the system is relatively effortless. Order directly from the Snake River Farm's website and in a few days, your delivery arrives frozen solid from Eastern Idaho packed in dry ice.
Providing beef directly to customers is a real benefit as you're not rolling the dice on what's in stock at the local market. I appreciate the peace of mind knowing that I have premium steaks on hand and in my freezer for whenever I feel like enjoying them.
How to Cook Wagyu Steak?
One of the great things about wagyu beef is that it requires nothing special or to cook it.
If anything, I prefer to use a simple cooking method for this wagyu sirloin. This allows the high-quality beef flavor to become the star of the dish. Today I use an indoor grill that's also an air fryer to cook the sirloin steak. But rest assured that it can be grilled, roasted, pan-seared, or cooked however you prefer.
Is Wagyu Beef Expensive?
American wagyu beef is typically more expensive per pound than select, choice, and often USDA prime cuts of beef. Although expensive, it's still more affordable than purebred Japanese wagyu.

This is a good basic recipe, with Wagu a cook is silly to try and "make it better"
I actually made this steak twice using different methods and seasoning. The strictly salt method was more enjoyable than my previous, more fancy test.
Looks like a great gift-giving option. It would be something totally unexpected for sure!
