Dry aging is the age-old rustic tradition of curing beef. This process involves storage of the beef on racks in a temperature-controlled environment. The protein is exposed to salt which helps to extract residual moisture. Given time, the protein’s natural enzymes further break down the muscle tissue. The net result is a mouthwatering, delicious, flavorful and tender cut that is second to none.
