Since today is the day my dry-aged beef reached 42-th day, I decide to write a new blog after I stopped posting one more than a year. After I explained it to many friends, I decided to write it in words here. By the way, I don’t know the exact science behind this unless the meat became so fascinated. If you want to look up for more details, please try google the other resources.
At first I did not plan to write a blog post at all, so I have photos of zero-day beef only from my instagram. I got this one from nearby supermarket. (I asked a staff for the biggest size of the steak and they gave me this.) The price was shown in Japanese Yen excluding 8% tax. (Gosh…) Let me spoil you first that I do not regret paying this amount at all.
Before I continue to the dry-aged beef. I would like to introduce myself first. My name is “Zeal”. I’m working as an engineer in a mobile game department. However, my hobby is eating and cooking foods. As you might tell, I take my hobby seriously (maybe more than my main job).
Here we are, our main actor is here. Outside of the chunk is so dark and tough like a block of coal.
Let’s zoom in closely. This dry-aged beef was made inside a normal fridge for 42 days. I heard that it would be better if you have a special space/machine. (Please look up for more details if you are interested)
Diamond is inside
After I took many photos, I cut the blade into my beloved beef chunks and “WOW”. Super handsome one was waiting for me inside.
Cut dark pieces of meat for a while, and the right side is a result I was expecting since the first day. Of course, I know that the left side is a waste but I want to say that’s worth doing again.
Let’s compare before and after one again 🙂
I cut and trim the meat into 2-inch thickness steaks. I got 6 of them with this size.
Before I go, I will leave you with the handsome. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to grill it immediately so I had to put them into a freezer. I will have it later when I came back from a trip.
I know that I was so lazy on updating a blog. But I’m back anyways. If you like it, please at least say hi or leave some comments to me.
Thanks for coming to the party. See you again next time.
