Wagyu Steak & Turnip Fries

Wagyu Steak & Turnip Fries

Wagyu Steak & Fries | Wagyu is like the Brad Pitt of steak. Wait a minute. More like the Jackie Chan of steak. It comes from Japan and is known for its short legs…and flavor and marbling. I’m sure you’ve heard about it before, but what you might not know is that a lot of it is grown in the U.S. and Australia (because of cheaper grasslands). Also, the highest rated A5 wagyu, is said to have fat that melts in your mouth at 77 degrees! No wonder these guys taste so good, they are traditionally fed a beer-rich diet and massaged with sake….sounds like a great life to me.

Tomato Crab Ravioli | Whenever I want to feel better, I turn to one of my oldest friends. Pasta. He’s a good friend…a really, really good friend.
