The dry ageing process

What is Dry Ageing?

Aged

Dry ageing is the process of preparing and drying meats to amplify the flavours and texture in every mouthful.

Modern dry ageing is an expensive, painstaking, and comprehensive process that is not easy to replicate at home, which is both why it is largely unknown, and why it is such a phenomenal, exclusive dining experience. 

This process uses larger pieces of meat that are cleaned, prepared, then moved into a specialised refrigerator for a minimum of four weeks in order to draw out moisture and intensify flavour. This process creates a strong unique taste profile that further enhances the beef.

Dry Ageing Steps

Step 1 - Pre-aging
Before coating the meat, it is placed into a dry ager fridge for 1-3 weeks. It's important to start with this step, as this creates a crust that will protect the meat inside and allow for the aging process to start, this has to be done before the meat is coated or it will not age properly.
Step 2 - Dip in infused butter
Coating the meat with the fat encases the meat and stops the drying process, however, it allows for the meat to continue to age, without oxygen most of the bacteria will stop breaking down the meat, this process is taken over by the proteins and enzymes within the butter, allowing the meat to continue to age, without imparting an overwhelming dry-age flavor, so for those who are not so keen on a strong dry-age flavor this is perfect.
Step 3 - Refrigerate in a dry ager
A specialised dry ager controls the humidity levels, temperature, and airflow inside the fridge. After one month, the meat loses roughly 20% of its weight. It becomes extremely tender, and takes on new flavour properties that are often compared to buttered popcorn, potent beef, and even prosciutto.
Step 4 - Prepare the meat
After 4-6 weeks, the dry-aged steak is removed from the dry ager - giving the beef enough time to become tender and flavourful. Our chefs remove the hard outer coating of butter from the steak, once cleaned & trimmed, the steak is cut into portioned steak ready to serve.
Step 5 - Present to the table
Before coating the meat, it is placed into a dry ager fridge for 1-3 weeks. It's important to start with this step, as this creates a crust that will protect the meat inside and allow for the aging process to start, this has to be done before the meat is coated or it will not age properly.
Step 6 - Cook the steak
Finally, our professional chef will cook the steak. This typically involves just a few minutes of very high searing on each side for the optimum level of crispiness on the outside, and a flawless tenderness on the inside.

Our Monte range has been grass fed, which means fewer calories and more omega-3s per cut. As for the cut, the rump is typically leaner, with a slightly firmer texture than a fillet, and the eye is the most tender cut of the rump.
