What You'll Need
  • 1 PACKAGE Double 8 Cattle Company Fullblood Wagyu Beef for Kabobs (each piece cut in half widthwise)
  • 1/2 Sweet Onion (large diced)
  • 1 cup Stout Beer (chef used Capella Porter from Ecliptic Brewing)
  • 3 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 3 Garlic Cloves (finely minced)
  • 1 Lime (juiced)
  • 3 tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Ancho Chile Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 Poblano Pepper
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers (diced, spicy - keep seeds and pith, not spicy - remove seeds and pith)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves (smashed)
  • 1 cup Cilantro (leaves and stems)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 1/2 Sweet Onion (small diced)
  • 2 tablespoons Grapeseed Oil
  1. Tools - Small Bowl, Resealable Plastic Bag, Gas Grill, Food Processor or Blender, Bamboo Skewers (soaked in water overnight) or Metal Skewers
  2. FIRST STEP Take the Fullblood Wagyu beef for kabobs out of the freezer, and place it in the refrigerator 24 hours before starting this recipe.
  3. PREPARING THE MARINADE In a small bowl, place all of the marinade ingredients (stout beer, sriracha, minced garlic, lime juice, dark brown sugar, grapeseed oil, ground cumin, ancho chile powder, and kosher salt). Mix until well combined. Place the Fullblood Wagyu beef for kabobs (make sure you cut each piece in half) in a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the beef, and massage it in. Seal the bag, and let the kabob beef marinate in the refrigerator overnight. While the beef is marinating, turn the bag occasionally to coat.
  4. PREPARING THE CHARRED PEPPER SAUCE Place the poblano pepper over a gas flame or on the gas grill until charred on all sides. Once the pepper has cooled, cut it into pieces (discard the seeds and stem). Place the pepper in a food processor or blender. Add the diced jalapenos (keep the seeds and pith if you want spicy but remove them if you don’t want your sauce too spicy) to the blender as well. Lastly, add the smashed garlic, cilantro, ground cumin, kosher salt, lime juice, diced sweet onion, water, and grapeseed oil to the blender. Blend until smooth, and season to taste with kosher salt. Reserve.
  5. PREPARING THE WAGYU BEEF KABOBS Thread the marinated Wagyu beef and large diced onions onto 4 skewers. Alternate between the beef and the onion as you thread. If using bamboo skewers, make sure you’ve soaked them overnight before using them. Or, you can use metal skewers. Heat a gas grill on high heat for 10 minutes. Then, place the kabobs on the grill. Grill the kabobs for 2 minutes on each side for a medium-rare doneness.
  6. FINAL STEPS Let the marinated and grilled Wagyu beef kabobs rest for 5 minutes. Serve the kabobs with the charred pepper sauce. Enjoy!
