What You'll Need
  • 1 PACKAGE Double 8 Cattle Company Fullblood Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki Strips
  • 1/2 Large Red Bell Pepper (roasted, seeded, and cut into strips)
  • 12 Medium Size Asparagus Spears
  • 2 tablespoons Grapeseed Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Large Red Bell Pepper (roasted, seeded, and diced)
  • 2 Eggs* (yolks only)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 3/4 cup Grapeseed Oil
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil (use high quality olive oil)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Hot Sauce
  1. Tools - BBQ or Gas Grill, Blender, Baking Sheet, Grill Spatula
  2. FIRST STEP Take the Fullblood Wagyu beef sukiyaki strips out of the freezer, and place them in the refrigerator 24 hours before starting this recipe.
  3. PREPARING THE ROASTED RED BELL PEPPER Roast the large red bell pepper over a gas burner, BBQ, or gas grill until charred (black). Once charred on all sides, place the pepper in a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it sit for 30 minutes. Then, wipe off the pepper’s charred skin until you see only the red bell pepper. Remove the seeds, and split it in half. NOTE: Half of the pepper will be cut into 12 strips for grilling with the asparagus and beef. The other half of the pepper will be diced and used for making aioli.
  4. PREPARING THE AIOLI Place the egg yolks and Dijon mustard in a blender, and blend for 1 minute. With the blender running, add in half of the grapeseed oil and olive oil in a very slow and steady stream. Once half of the oil is added, add in the lemon juice. Then, continue slowly pouring in the oil. Once all of the oil is in the blender, add in the diced and roasted red bell pepper, minced garlic, kosher salt, and hot sauce. Blend until smooth, and season to taste with kosher salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. PREPARING THE ASPARAGUS AND FULLBLOOD WAGYU BEEF Trim about 2 inches from the woody ends of the asparagus, and discard the ends. Toss the asparagus with the grapeseed oil and kosher salt. Heat a gas grill over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Grill the asparagus spears for 1 minute to soften and enhance the flavor. Let the asparagus cool. Then, lay the Fullblood Wagyu beef sukiyaki strips on a flat surface. Place one asparagus spear across each strip of Wagyu beef, essentially forming a cross. Then, add one strip of roasted red bell pepper right next to the asparagus spear. Carefully wrap the beef strip around the asparagus spear and pepper strip (working from top to bottom). Place the beef-wrapped asparagus spears on a baking sheet seam-side-down, so they don’t unravel. If you have some that wont stay put, use a toothpick to pin the beef to the asparagus spear and pepper strip. Continue these steps until all of the asparagus spears are wrapped in Wagyu beef.
  6. FINAL STEPS Carefully place the beef-wrapped asparagus spears on the grill seam-side-down. Grill for 45 seconds. Then using a large grill spatula, carefully turn them over. Grill on the other side for 1 minute or to desired doneness. NOTE: This dish can also be prepared in an oven. Set your oven to 400°F, and roast the beef-wrapped asparagus for 5-7 minutes (until slightly browned and no longer pink). Place the grilled Wagyu beef-wrapped asparagus on a large platter. Serve hot with the roasted red pepper aioli, and enjoy! *Consuming raw or uncooked eggs may increase your risk for foodborne illness, especially if you have a medical condition. Pasteurization is recommended. With this process, the eggs are heated to an internal temperature of 138°F. Heat water in a pot to 140ºF. Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature. Place your (room temperature) eggs in the water, and heat the eggs for 3 1/2 minutes. Don't allow the temperature to reach or exceed 142ºF, as this will cook your eggs. Transfer your pasteurized eggs into a bowl of cold water to stop the heating process. Then store them in the fridge until ready to use in a recipe that requires raw egg whites or yolks.
