Dry Aged Ribeye, Onion Sausage and more...

Dyal_SCDyal_SC Posts: 2,211

My wife and I decided to treat ourselves tonight.  We stopped by the "Happy Butcher" earlier today and picked up a nice thick dry aged ribeye and 4 links of onion sausage.  We split the steak since it was so big.  The Happy Butcher dry ages all his rib roasts for a minimum of 21 days I believe.  Not sure how many days this one aged, but it had an incredible flavor.  It had outstanding marbelization too. 

I started by grilling up the Onion Sausage, since I wanted that cooked at a lower temp.  He makes them in his shop, and the flavor is amazing.

Grilled up the sausage until they hit an internal temp of 162 deg f....shooting for 160, so that was close enough.  :)  Then it was time for the Ribeye Steak.  I seasoned that down with Kosher Salt, Cracked Pepper and Cayenne Pepper.  Then brought the BGE to a dome temp of about 500 deg f give or take.

I'm going low carb again in order to shed a few pounds, so there weren't too many carbs at all in this meal.

The flavor of the dry aged ribeye was insane.  They have a beefy richness that is out of this world.  The onion sausage is also delicious.  I'd go back to the Happy Butcher just for the sausage alone.  The steaks are a little pricey at $16.99 per pound, but they are a nice treat every so often.  I actually have a good setup for dry aging at home, and have done it a couple times already, but I didn't have any dry aged steaks on hand tonight.  I keep intending to buy a whole rib roast to dry age myself.....may do that on payday next week.  ;)

    Dray aged beef at $16 a pound is a real bargain.  Where are you?

    That's a deal around me. Was it prime? I believe it's 10 bucks more per pound for me(dry aged prime)

    Thx y'all! I'm in Columbia, SC. The prime bone in cowboy ribeyes are $26.99 per pound I think at the Happy Butcher. My wife bought me a couple of those for my b-day once. :) Not sure if these boneless ribeyes were prime, choice, or something else...I didn't ask...but they did have great marbeling. And just as good of a flavor as the prime bone in from what I remember. I'd have to do a side by side comparison I guess. ;) Maybe I'll ask for that for Christmas. :D

  • I live in SC too. And I have shopped too have shopped at the happy butcher. His master burgers are awsome. In fact a buddy of mine regularly cooks for the happy butcher on saturdays. Have you ever had any of his samples?

    Outstanding Dyal. Sounds like the Happy Butcher had a very Happy Customer and the pictures clearly show why.

  • The burgers are great. The hot dogs that he has are good too. My son will not eat any other kind. I get my filets from the other butcher down the raod. The name escapes me. But you can get like 10 of them wrapped in bacon for like $80

  • I've never heard of onion sausage before. Sounds tasty.

    @FearlessTheEggNoob, I think onion sausage is more of a southern thing. Not sure if it's popular nation wide. It's good stuff. The Happy Butcher does a great job.
