American Wagyu Game Day Feast

American Wagyu Game Day Feast

Let's be honest: the biggest game day of the year is nothing without great food. It's a crucial part of the experience so why not go a little extra and fill up your game day menu with American Wagyu? You need the best fuel for all the football, commercials, halftime show, and food fans. 

Our American Wagyu Game Day Feast flight has all the staples: Wagyu Brisket Short-Rib Burgers, Tajima American Wagyu Ground Beef, and Wagyu Beef Hot Dogs. 

This recipe aims to make the process simple so you can minimize your effort while maximizing the flavor of each component with wagyu. Start with the chili and while that's simmering, you can knock out the other two components.

    • Hot dog buns

Tajima Wagyu Chili 

  1. Heat a pot over medium heat and add 3 tbsp of oil.
  2. Once heated, add your peppers and onions. Stir constantly until beginning to soften.
  3. Add your Tajima Wagyu ground beef and half of the chili seasonings. Cook until browned. Drain off excess fat (do not skip this step or your chili will be too greasy).
  4. Add all canned items, 1 can of water, and remaining chili seasonings. Simmer for at least 30 minutes*, stirring occasionally.
  5. Serve with toppings of choice (we highly recommend sour cream!)

*Remember: more simmering time means more time for flavors to develop so don't worry if it takes longer than 30 minutes to finish the other items.


Wagyu Brisket, Short-Rib Sliders

You can choose to hit the grill with the burgers and hot dogs for that added char and flavor, but if it's too cold, you don't have a grill, or you simply don't feel like it, this indoor recipe is for you. Cooking burgers in the oven isn't usually the method we'd recommend, but we'd rather enjoy the game and worry less about clean-up, plus it's still delicious!

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with an elevated baking rack.
  3. Divide each burger patty into thirds, flatten into 3-4 inch circles, and season to taste.
  4. Place your slider patties onto the baking rack. 
  5. Bake for approximately 5 minutes, then add a slice of cheese to each patty. 
  6. Return the patties to the oven and cook until they are almost to your desired doneness (this will depend on the thickness of your patty, ours took another 5-7 minutes plus rest time).
  7. Remove from the oven and let rest for five minutes. 
  8. Add two patties to each slider bun and serve with your toppings of choice.


Wagyu Beef Hot Dogs

The hot dogs can be made while the sliders are baking and the chili is simmering, so everything will come together and be ready to eat at the same time!

  1. Heat a cast iron pan over medium heat and add a tbsp of oil.
  2. Once hot, add your hot dogs (work in batches if needed).
  3. Cook until starting to brown, rotating occasionally. This should take 4-5 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat up to medium-high and sear each side of the hot dogs to desired level.
  5. Serve with your toppings of choice (did someone say chili?).


These recipes are relatively simple and far more casual than we normally put out there, but don't be fooled: they are downright delicious. The American wagyu in each component speaks for itself and will bring plenty of praise from the crowd you are feeding!
