Recipe-The Wagyu Window Char Siu Tri-Tip

The Wagyu Window Char Siu Wagyu Tri-Tip (Chinese BBQ Wagyu Tri-Tip)

We like to say that our Australian Purebred line is what inspired The Wagyu Window. If you want to see what Australian Wagyu can deliver then look no further.  Purebred Japanese Wagyu raised in Australia. Purebred refers to cattle that are 93.75% - 99.99% Wagyu which will deliver a steak that is even more tender, marbled & buttery than our F1 crossbred steaks. The purebred line delivers the ultimate experience in Australian Wagyu w/ a smooth texture above all else.

Char siu (叉烧) is a type of Cantonese roast meat. Char siu has a depth of flavors, both sweet and salty. Simple white rice and steamed vegetables compliments the meat very well. (Our favorite rice is Botan Calrose!)


(For ~ 3lb Tri Tip) 

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl & mix. Separate 1/4 cup of this mixture into a separate container. Set aside. 

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup shaoxing wine (can be replaced with a dry sherry or mirin)
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice powder
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 3 tablespoons raw brown sugar
  • 3-5 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon beetroot powder (can be found at Whole Foods)

Cut The Wagyu Window Tri-Tip into 2 inch thick pieces and place into a large sous vide bag, add the marinade and massage the marinade into the Tri-Tip. Refrigerate & marinate overnight. Refrigerate the remaining 1/4 cup of marinade in a separate container.


Sous Vide the marinated Tri-Tip in an airtight sous vide bag for a minimum of 6 hours at 135F. After a minimum of 6 hours, remove the Tri-Tip pieces from the sous vide bag, then pat it dry with a paper towel. Place the Tri-Tip pieces on top of a baking pan and cooling rack. 

Pre heat your oven broiler on HI.

Using the remaining marinade that you've set aside, add 2 tablespoons of honey and mix. Brush the mixture onto the Tri-Tip pieces and broil on HI. Repeat the brushing every 2-3 minutes and flip the Tri-Tip. Repeat this a few times. Slice, serve & ENJOY!
