Basically, there are three quality ratings for beef; prime, choice and select.
We only offer dry-aged, prime beef.
Prime means beef that is produced from young, well-fed cattle. It has the most marbling and is produced in smaller quantities than other grades.
A true labor of love; Dry-Aged Beef
Dry-aged beef is a traditional butcher shop technique in which beef ages openly in dry-aging coolers. As the beef hangs, the enzymes break down, tenderizing the meat and enhancing the flavor and tenderness. By hanging the meat in a controlled open-air environment it goes through a flavor transformation. By exposing the meat to air, moisture is pulled out and the natural enzymes in the beef break the muscles down slowly over time, making it more tender. It all comes down to three key factors: air flow to help form a crust, humidity control to slow down the migration of moisture and keep natural juices from running out, and temperature control to stop the meat from spoiling. To cook a dry aged steak at home, prepare it just like you would a regular steak, but with one difference: With dry aged beef, you do run the risk of over-seasoning so don’t go as heavy on the salt as you would a normal steak.
Dry aged beef may come with a bigger price tag, but the payoff is a flavor that is unmistakable and a texture that is vastly superior to wet aged beef. The benefits far outweigh the costs. Ultimately, dry aging is for those who are looking for a next level eating experience and that’s what it brings to the table.
