Delicate Beefy Flavor
Imagine a beef as pure as the driven snow… Imagine a steak that eats as clean as the coolest lines taken from the impressive mountains of Hokkaido… That is this beef. Connected to the earth and somehow floating in the clouds at the same time. You will be hard pressed to find a cleaner eating; more pure representation of Wagyu in the world.
So, pack your bags for Aspen, Vail, or Tahoe and don’t forget to bring (or send) the Hokkaido A5 Wagyu from Lone Mountain. Who really needs to go to Niseko when we can bring the best of Hokkaido to your own home or mountain abode? (In all seriousness though, do consider a trip to Hokkaido at some point; very underrated).
The Hokkaido Strip is the perfect balance of power and grace, like a great downhill skier. Enjoy simply with sea salt and a nice sear.
Thaw the prized Wagyu product as you see fit (see below under "Handling and Thawing" for deeper guidance.)
We always recommend cooking Wagyu to no more than Medium Rare. But your oven might throw heat better than ours, or you might be at sea level while we're up past mile-high. So, for the love of all things holy - like your precious Wagyu - take our timing specs with a grain of proverbial salt. Use your common sense and maybe even a meat thermometer and don't take our word for gospel. One thing to keep in mind is that this amazing A5 beef has a LOT of marbling so no need for additional fat. Moreover, the luxe marbling gives it a lower smoking point than your traditional American beef. So, do not scorch your A5 and be mindful of too much heat. Be gentle.
Grill: Heat the grill to medium to medium high. Season the steak with salt, at minimum, or anything else that floats your boat. Sear each side for a minute or two. We're looking for Maillard reaction - that's brown and crispy. Move steaks to a lower heat and cook for another couple minutes. Take off the heat and let rest for a few minutes, if you can wait.
Stovetop: Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium high heat on the stove. Season the steak as your heart desires. Same idea as above: sear each side for a minute or two until browned and then turn down heat on skillet. Cook for a few more minutes, then remove steak to rest for a few minutes. We dare you

Handling & Thawing
Not digging into your Wagyu right away? Place your vacuum-sealed package in your freezer upon delivery. Your meat should be good for up to 12 months in your freezer… though we doubt it will stay there that long!
Have some time? Thaw your beef in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. This is the best way to thaw, allowing the Wagyu to retain all of its natural juices for an exceptional flavor.
Hungry sooner? Keep beef in the vacuum-sealed package and submerge in a bowl of cold water for a few hours.
Change of dinner plans? Thawed steaks still in the vacuum-sealed package can be safely refrozen as long as they have remained refrigerated and have not been thawed for longer than a day.
