Recipe provided by Chef Melanie Hammericksen
Pull the Fullblood Wagyu beef for fajitas (also known as beef for stir fry) out of the freezer, and place it in the refrigerator 24 hours before starting this recipe.
PREPARING THE FULLBLOOD WAGYU BEEF
If the pieces of Fullblood Wagyu beef for fajitas are larger then 2 inches, cut them against the grain into thinner strips.
Season the beef with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
PREPARING THE SAUCE
In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, minced ginger, hot Chinese mustard, sweet chili sauce, minced garlic, and honey.
Whisk to combine, and set the sauce aside.
PREPARING THE RICE
Prepare the rice according to the package instructions.
PREPARING THE STIR FRY
Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. Add in half of the sesame oil.
Once the oil starts to shimmer, add the seasoned Fullblood Wagyu beef for fajitas/stir fry in one layer.
Let the beef brown for 1-2 minutes without turning it.
After that, use tongs to turn the beef to the other side, and brown for an additional 2 minutes.
Remove the browned Fullblood Wagyu beef, and repeat the steps with the rest of the beef (use the rest of the sesame oil when browing the second batch of beef).
Once all the beef is browned, add it all back into the cast iron skillet.
Mix in the baby bok choy.
Reduce the heat to low-medium, and add the sauce to the skillet.
Stir to combine, and let the sauce simmer on low heat for about 3 minutes.
Whisk together the water and the cornstarch until thoroughly combined. Stir the water and cornstarch mixture into the ingredients in the skillet.
Serve the sticky Fullblood Wagyu beef honey-ginger stir fry over rice.
Garnish with chopped green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
