It took a few years for the world to realize that despite their (very much deserved) fame for sushi and sashimi, the Japanese also produce some of the world's best beef, collectively known as "wagyu" (literally, Japanese beef). Wagyu can be any of four different breeds of cow and one of them, the kuroge (or Japanese black) wagyu, is the one used in the Canned Kuroge Wagyu Japanese Beef in Soy Sauce, cooked in one of Japan's most characteristic ways: yamatoni, or "ancient Japan boiling."
The style isn't really "ancient," let's be honest, but it does come from the time Japan started eating beef, the late 19th century, and mainly involves soy sauce, ginger, and sugar. It is a sauce that really complements the high-quality beef you find in each can of this kuroge wagyu. Despite purists crying that wagyu is best experienced as a steak, yamatoni style is essential Japanese cuisine that will win you over immediately. Especially with beef this good!
