In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Tools - Gas Grill or Indoor Grill Pan, Small Stainless Steel Sauce Pan
  2. FIRST STEP Take the Fullblood Wagyu top round steak (tenderized) out of the freezer, and place it in the refrigerator 24 hours before starting this recipe.
  3. PREPARING THE MARINADE In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, seeded and chopped jalapeños, light brown sugar, ground cumin, ground coriander, kosher salt, lime juice, orange juice, chopped cilantro stems, and grapeseed oil. This is your marinade. Place the Fullblood Wagyu top round steak pieces in a Ziploc bag. Pour the marinade over the steak. In addition to the marinade, add in the juiced orange halves and lime halves. Seal the Ziploc bag. Gently turn the bag a few times in order to fully coat the steak with the marinade. Place the bag in a refrigerator, and allow the steak to marinate for 12-24 hours. Turn the bag every 6 hours to distribute the marinade.
  4. PREPARING THE ONIONS AND HEATED MARINADE Remove the marinated Fullblood Wagyu steak pieces from the refrigerator 1 hour before starting the grill. Pull the steak from the marinade, and place it on a plate. Allow it to come to room temperature. In the meantime, toss the onion rings into the Ziploc (marinade) bag. Allow the onion rings to sit in the marinade for 30 minutes. Remove the onions, and set them on a plate. Add the remaining contents/marinade (including the orange and lime halves) to a small stainless steel sauce pan. Bring the marinade to a boil. Reserve.
  5. GRILLING THE FULLBLOOD WAGYU STEAK AND ONION RINGS Heat a gas grill or indoor grill pan on high heat. Once hot, grill the beef for 2 minutes and 30 seconds per side for a medium-rare finish. Place the marinated onion rings on the grill. Cook them for 5 minutes or until soft and slightly caramelized. Let the grilled Fullblood Wagyu steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.
  6. FINAL STEPS Remove the halved oranges and limes from the sauce pan (reserve the marinade). Toss the beef with the heated marinade. Garnish the sliced Fullblood Wagyu steak with cilantro leaves. Serve the steak with the grilled onion rings and warmed tortillas. Enjoy!
