Cooking Instructions
Preparation: Bring the steak to room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking. Season well with salt and pepper.
Cooking: Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C). Sear the steak in a hot skillet with oil over high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned. Then, transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for 5-7 minutes for medium-rare.
Resting: Let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing to serve.
Additional Tips:  Always preheat your cooking surface before adding the steak to ensure it sears properly. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness: 120-125°F for rare, 130-135°F for medium-rare, 140-145°F for medium, 150-155°F for medium-well, and 160-165°F for well done. Resting the steak after cooking is crucial as it allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, ensuring a moist and flavorful steak.
What is 28-Day Wet-Aged Meat?
When meat is wet-aged, it is sealed in airtight plastic packaging immediately after butchering and then stored in a controlled, refrigerated environment. The 28-day period allows the meat’s natural enzymes to break down the muscle fibers and connective tissues, enhancing both the flavor and tenderness of the meat. The specific timeframe of 28 days is often chosen to balance achieving noticeable improvements in texture and flavor without the meat becoming overly soft or losing its integrity.
Comparing Wet Aging to Dry Aging
While both wet and dry aging improve tenderness and flavor, the processes have distinct outcomes. Dry aging involves aging meat uncovered in a controlled environment, leading to moisture evaporation and a more pronounced concentration of flavor, along with a unique outer crust that must be trimmed away before cooking. Wet aging, on the other hand, focuses on enhancing tenderness and maintaining moisture without the intense flavor concentration or outer crust associated with dry aging.
