i shopped for Chritmas food before i had a menu plan this hunk of cow got put in the fridge for 10 days to age . it looked pretty wet for dry aged. cooked raised at 350 direct turning every 15 minutes.. i like raw but ate an end piece [no pre cook trim] almost like bacon ,,, some of it crispy and some of it succulent.













  • Awesome! Can't post too many of these in my mind.

    do you know how long they dry aged it? doesn't look like too long. and then you aged it too... what, a week?

    did you eat the ends? just a little dry, but edible.

    next time you try aging a roast with cut ends, try rubbing a little oil on the flesh and slapping a piece of wax paper to it. it will give you a week or so before the ends start to dry, but allowing the rest of it to dry the whole time.

    looks good. pricey though. yikes :ohmy:

  • i dry aged 10 days,, i do not know how long they dry aged it but it sure weren't dry in the package,, not fresh but not dry and not wet aged either .
    the end was great but i will do the waxd paper next time . interesting in the cooked pic how the fat protected the inside from the heat.
    same side peice of waygu was $100 and this looked better.

    bill, just when I thought it was safe, another prime rib post, :side: . I'm in agreement with RU Eggsperienced that you can't have too many prime rib posts.

    The marbling looks gorgeous, as does the finished roast. At least you have the rest of the year to pay off the prime rib mortgage. :lol: :laugh: :huh: :S

    How long did it take to cook? How long did you let it rest? What sides did you serve?
  • and a good meal to end the season with ,, my sons were home and we took down the tree

    LOL - ditto your comments - it really makes my heart sing to see that $24.99 a pound price! By dry aging meat myself makes me feel kinda like a medieval alchemist, but instead of turning iron into gold I turn basic beef into memorable meals of beef!

  • cooked about and hour 15 minutes per side raised at 350 with 15 minute rest.. mashed egged baked taters and green beans .. no fancy sides needed .. 5 slices and noboby needed seconds .. the pits were full with just one plate!!!
    as far as the mortgage, the chilean sea bass for christmas eve was more .. hope work is busy tomorrow .
  • maybe i can bring one to sunshine . cook it along side the scrapple
  • it will fill you up quick,, five servings from that piece and the bottomless pits were stuffed
  • i have aged some costco choice primals before but i lacked fridge space to do it over the holidays ,, as it was the bed of the truck in the garage was full of food and i set up an table behind the jeep for the overflow. and i was shopping with out a plan ,, always a bad idea .
  • OMG. That is one of the best dinners I have seen posted. I am not a fan of uber rare, so the beautiful light pink really set my taste buds on overload.
  • i like raw but this was really good
    thank you .
