• 1 pound of ground Wagyu chuck divided into 3 patties.
  • Cooked bacon.
  • One slice cheese of your choice (I used America and Colby Jack).
  • Iceberg Lettuce.
  • 2 thin slices of tomato.
  • Toasted bun.
  • Salt and Pepper.
  • Over easy egg, Kewpie Mayo,  Grated Parmesan (all optional).


  • Mix a few generous dashes of salt and pepper with your thawed chuck and mix.  Make patties.
  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C
  • Begin getting your cast iron pan hot on a medium to medium high heat.
  • Grind more fresh pepper and salt onto the top side of the patties and throw that side down onto the hot cast iron for 3-5 minutes.  Grind salt and pepper on the other side of the patties as they begin cooking.
  • Flip the patties.
  • Put on bacon, cover patties with cheese, put into the 375F/190C preheated oven for 5-8 minutes depending on how done you like your burgers.
  • Toast your bun.  Bagel setting on a regular toaster is perfect.
  • Remove the patties from the oven and allow them to rest for a few minutes.
  • Construct your burger and enjoy!  Serve with fries.
