Cast-Iron Seared Garlic and Herb Marinated American Wagyu Sirloin Cap

1 whole Imperial American Wagyu Sirloin Cap
4 long sprigs rosemary
20 sprigs thyme
15 cloves peeled garlic
ΒΌ cup canola oil
4 tablespoons butter
Creole seasoning


  1. Flip Sirloin Cap over on opposite side of fat cap and trim off any silver skin that may be attached.
  2. To do this, using a sharp thin blade, insert tip just under the silver skin and run blade along silver skin just turning the blade at a slight upward angle to scrape the silver skin from the surface of the meat.
  3. Holding the removed side of silver skin, turn your blade at a slight angle and work your way back in the other direction to completely remove silver skin from the meat and discard.
  4. Continue this process until all silver skin is removed.
  5. Cut 3-4 steaks lengthwise against the grain.
  6. Place the cut steaks on sheet pan and season generously with creole seasoning on both sides of steaks.
  7. Place steaks in vacuum seal bag with garlic, 10 sprigs of thyme, and 2 sprigs of rosemary.
  8. Seal bags removing all air to allow to marinate.
  9. If you do not have a vacuum sealer, you can place ingredients in a gallon size freezer bag and submerge bag in water keeping zip seal out of water to allow all air to be forced out of bag then seal bag with zipper.
  10. Allow steaks to marinate for at least 3-4 hours or overnight before cooking.
  11. Remove steaks from bag and place on sheet pan.
  12. Reserve garlic from bag, thinly slice, and set aside.
  13. Lightly season each side with creole seasoning once more.
  14. Heat cast-iron skillet over medium high heat and add canola oil to skillet.
  15. Allow to heat until it just starts to smoke.
  16. Place steaks, herbs from bag, and remaining fresh herbs in skillet and cook on 1 side until nicely seared, about 4-5 minutes.
  17. Lower the heat in the skillet to medium heat, then flip steaks, and add butter to skillet.
  18. Allow the butter to melt and begin basting tops of steaks with melted butter using a large spoon.
  19. Cook for 5-6 minutes on second side, or until cooked to desired doneness.
  20. Remove from heat and allow steaks to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  21. While steaks are resting, spoon remaining butter from steak skillet into smaller skillet and cook sliced garlic over medium heat until softened, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  22. Spoon garlic and some herb butter over steaks to serve.
