These Wagyu Ribeye steaks were cooked on a hot salt block!
When I first wrote about Himalayan salt block cooking, the salt blocks weren’t even available in the UK. I purchased mine in the US from one of those over priced LA cook shops. I may have paid over the odds, but I’ve loved having it.
When I returned to the UK, I learned that you could actually purchase the same thing from horse shops at a fraction of the cost. They’re called horse licks.
Now UK cookery shops seem to be getting in on this new craze. I’ve seen them online for between £8.00 and £15.00 so be sure to shop around. I really recommend them. Himalayan salt blocks are fun! You can cook at the table making them ideal for dinner parties or just family nights in.
If using a salt block, you just need to heat it in a high oven for about an hour. Carefully remove it as it will be very hot. Let’s just say I cooked the two Wagyu ribeye steaks in about three minutes!
You could of course sear the steaks in a pan with a little olive oil over medium high heat.
This is a very simple recipe. I didn’t want any ingredients to take away from the luxury that is Wagyu beef! Wagyu ribeye steaks are so tender and mouthwateringly good. You can purchase Wagyu beef online from Alterative Meats.
