Dry-aged beef is beef that has been hung or placed on a rack to dry for several weeks in a cold enviroment nearly freezing temperatures. Subprimal cuts can be dry aged on racks either in specially climate-controlled coolers or within a moisture-permeable drybag. Moreover, only the higher grades of meat can be dry aged, as the process requires meat with a large, evenly distributed fat content. Because of that, dry aged beef is only availabled on high rated upscale restaurant or special gourmet supermarket.

Basically, dry aged made two basic changes within the meat. First, the moisture content is evaporated from the meat and concentrated the beef flavour and taste. Second, the meat natural enzymes break down the connective tissue in the muscle, which leads to more tender beef. Dry-aging usually also induced growth of certain fungal (mold) species on the external surface of the meat. This does not cause spoilage, but actually forms an external “crust” on the meat’s surface, which is trimmed off when the meat is prepared for cooking. These fungal species complement the natural enzymes in the beef by helping to tenderize and increase the flavor of the meat.

Dry Aged Black Angus Striploin/Sirloin Steak Recipe

I’m brought this 250 gr of 30 days dry aged black angus sirloin or striploin in Kem Chick Supermarket, Jakarta. Don’t ask me about the price, it’s kinda pissed me off. This prized black angus steak could be barterred for about 2 kilos of regular beef. The flavour of dry aged beef is sctually like a concentrate of beef flavour. If you familiar with dried seafood like shrimp or scallop, the flavour is much more potent than the fresh ones. The texture is slighly more tender than regular beef, but it’s got a firmer meat. When you put it in a sizzling hot pan, there’s no any juice driven off from the steak, but the fat is more quickly melted.

If it’s about the concentrate flavour, my sister said: “Why don’t you brought the regular beef and marinated or even cured it with concentrated beef stock”, Oh, “it’s called a wet aging” i replied again.

  2. I love dry-aged beef! Don’t like the price, though, so I seldom purchase it. But there’s nothing like it. Great post – thanks.

  3. I’ve always been wondering what the big deal with dry-aged beef is. I see it all the time, but I’ve never bothered to try it. Like you, the price tag makes me look to other meats instead.

  4. I love your spicy balsamic vinegar and shallots jam recipe! It sounds amazing. I cannot find the good aged beef here in HK but I bet this jam recipe is great on so many thing, even pork. Have a super weekend. BAM
