1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth, undiluted
3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 bay leaf
6 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 cup sliced celery (1-inch lengths)
In an oven-safe Dutch oven, brown Oostema’s Wagyu Stew Meat in batches in oil; drain. Return all meat to the pan. Add onions, tomatoes, broth, tapioca, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Bring to a boil.
Cover the stew and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Stir in carrots, potatoes, and celery. Bake, covered, 1 hour longer, or until meat and vegetables are tender. Discard bay leaf.
While the above steps are a sure way to create a delicious batch of Oostema’s Wagyu Stew Meat, the best way to add personal flair is to experiment with different veggies, herbs, and spices. As you are probably cooking and eating at home more than ever before, it is a great time to sharpen your cooking skills.
While we would love to host all of our customers, only our registered guests on the Farmstead can visit the animals and watch how we raise our cattle. To book one of our accommodations, go here: https://oostemafarmstead.com/
No, but this is a very common question. Although all Kobe is Wagyu, not all Wagyu is Kobe. Wagyu is the breed of cattle, which hails from Japan, and is famed for its dense marbling and flavor. Kobe beef comes from Wagyu cattle that meet very strict guidelines and are born, raised, and processed in Hyogo Prefecture of Japan, whose capital city is Kobe. Wagyu beef from the US could never be Kobe beef.
When beef does pass inspection, it is stamped or labeled with the USDA inspection stamp, and that means it is fit to eat. The USDA’s inspection is all or nothing. There’s no halfway or partially-passed beef. Meat inspection is a very thorough process.
No, all of our meats come straight from the butcher. Everything is frozen and uncooked. If you wish to have it thawed upon your arrival, please let us know. We can take it out of the freezer and have it thawing in the refrigerator.
