What does dry aging mean?

Dry-aging is a controlled decomposition process of the meat using precise temperature and humidity levels.

In scientific terms, during the dry aging process (overtime), the moisture is drawn out of the meat. This causes the beef flavour to become even beefier and more flavorful. What’s more, the aging process causes the beef’s natural enzymes to break down the connective tissue in the meat, making it more tender.

During the dry aging process, a crust of fungus grows on the outside of the meat. So, it’s important to trim off all the outer skin before you cook it.
