It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
most tender: wagyu - NY Strip. This was an amazing piece of meat. It was more tender than the ribeye and had overall better flavor and texture.
most flavor: 45 day dry aged beef, Both the ribeye and strip had great flavor and texture. You could taste a cheese like note in the meat. Truly an amazing way of processing beef.
Prime beef is still hard to beat for three reasons. 1) tenderness 2) flavor 3) price. When you buy high quality prime beef, there's not much that will beat it. They're just great steaks and the marbling isn't far from wagyu.
The overall winer is....45 day dry aged beef. This was truly amazing, there were 6 people judging, and everyone had the same conclusion. The flavor was very rich and pronounced. You could really tell a difference in the meat's flavor and texture. The other two were tasty, but the only difference between wagyu and prime was the fat content. They have the same flavor with just slightly different textures due to the marbling.
We had a lot of fun doing this and highly recommend anyone trying it. Have fun egg'in!!
