a steak dinner to crow about!

Having just dry aged a New York loin sub primal for 35 days we were ready to sample the results. First I selected a 1.5" for her and a 2" for me.

Then I seasoned them well with nothing but coarse kosher salt and into the hot tub for an hour and 15 minutes.

Pat and I really just like a simple steak dinner with little frills other than a nice salad. So we made this of red leaf lettuce, onion, cherry tomatoes, green peas, Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese dressing, Maytag Bleu Cheese crumblies and topped with roasted sunflower seeds. This was nearly a tasty meal within itself!

Meanwhile I decanted some Cabernet Sauvignon and sliced up the compound butter I had made the night before along with some plain butter for the glistening sake and taste.

By then my small egg was pegged at 710° and begging for meat!

After a total of only 3 minutes searing time the steaks were rare just like we wanted.

By and far these 35 day strips were the best ever! 35 for New Yorks and 45 for rib eyes are my new benchmarks!

  • Great looking steaks. Thanks for your post on dry aging. Learning a lot and look forward to trying this. Had a 60 day dry aged at a local high end steakhouse and I can't stop thinking about it :evil:

    I do not see a thing I would change... 'cept maybe a plate for me :)

    Thanks! Just 2 weeks ago we had dined out at a former favorite local steakhouse where we also both ordered aged NY strips. Trust me mine were better last night and besides didn't ding my credit card $118 this time!

    Man, those steaks look wonderful.

    Love the salad too - great meal.

    Wish I had a second fridge so I could try that.

    actually a 14# sub-primal sitting on a wire rack on the bottom shelf of your kitchen refrig doesn't take up that much space.

    I have 5 kids. My fridge goes from jam packed each weekend to 2/3 empty the next Friday. Definitely no room for a primal.

    But, with my sized family, another fridge is in order anyway. Just have not pulled the trigger yet. But I will one day - and then I will try aged beef.
  • RRP, thanks for showing the finished 35 day dry aged steaks. They are a thing of beauty! :)
  • mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I forgot to mention that this morning my wife was reflecting on that meal last night and she coined the term "that was dining out - in!"

  • Ron, you need to get a youtube video of your dry aging process. Those looked great, thanks for sharing!
