  • 3 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 6-8 Large Garden Tomatoes (chopped, approximately 4 cups total)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (minced)
  • 2 Small Carrots (peeled, small diced)
  • 1 Celery Stalk (small diced)
  • 5 Large Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 CUP Fresh Basil (chiffonade)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 TSP Sherry Vinegar


        • Gas Grill
        • Stainless Steel Saucepan

        FIRST STEP

        Take the Fullblood Wagyu chuck steak out of the freezer, and place it in the refrigerator 24 hours before starting this recipe.


        Place the Fullblood Wagyu chuck steak in a Ziploc bag.

        In a small bowl, mix the grapeseed oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, oregano, kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper. This is your marinade.

        Pour the marinade over the steak, and coat. Seal the Ziploc bag.

        Put the steak in the refrigerator to marinate for 12-24 hours.


        In a stainless steel saucepan over medium-high heat, add in the olive oil.

        Once heated, sauté the minced onion, diced carrots, and diced celery. Cook until the onions are translucent.

        Add in the minced garlic, and cook for 5 minutes.

        Add in the diced tomatoes, and reduce the heat to low.

        Cook slowly, while stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes.

        Add in the chiffonade basil, and season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

        Add in the sherry vinegar.

        Note: If you prefer a smoother sauce, pour the sauce into a food processor or blender. Quickly pulse until the sauce is smooth.


        Cook the bucatini pasta per package instructions.

        After the pasta is cooked, toss the pasta with a little olive oil.


        Heat a gas grill over medium-high heat for 10 minutes.

        Take the steak out of the Ziploc bag. Discard the marinade.

        Once the grill is hot, place the marinated Fullblood Wagyu chuck steak on the grill.

        Grill for 2 minutes and 30 seconds per side. This will result in medium-rare doneness.

        Let the steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing the steak against the grain.


        Pour the pomodoro sauce over the cooked bucatini pasta. Make sure the pasta is fully coated.

        Divide the pasta and sauce between 4 plates or bowls (whichever you prefer to use).

        Add slices of grilled Fullblood Wagyu steak to each plate.

        Drizzle with balsamic glaze.

        Garnish with parmigiano-reggiano cheese and chiffonade basil.

        Serve, and enjoy!
