Yakiniku BBQ is a standard beef menu, in which bite-size beef is grilled to relish with special sauces. When wagyu beef is served in yakiniku BBQ, it is important to lightly grill the surface of beef so its softness and juice are sealed in. In a Japanese style yakiniku, wasabi is served as seasoning, which neutralizes the fat of wagyu beef. Not only enhancing the deliciousness of the beef, but wasabi also reduces spiciness and makes the texture of the beef smoother.
