Have you ever heard of dry aged steaks before?
YES! They are regarded as one of the most expensive steaks in the world. This does not look appetizing to many people but if you are a steak lover, then you will love this. This is what we call Dry Aging Process.
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.
