Recipe: Wagyu Filet

Submitter: Chef Jason Morse, Ace Hardware Grill Expert

“For this recipe we dial up the Big Green Egg and cook our filet hot and fast.  We build some nice crust and then finish it with wood chips for that nice burst of smoke. Happy Cooking,” said Chef Jason Morse.

Burb Big Green Egg and Open dome

Add steaks to outside center of the embers and grill for approx. 8 minutes per side

** if you want those signature diamond grill marks, rotate 180˚ on each side after 4 minutes

Flip steaks to the second side after initial 8 minutes of cooking

** If grill is too hot in the center, move steaks more to the outside of the grill great (almost indirect)

Cook steak until it reaches internal temp of 115˚ (this will result in a perfect medium steak)
