I've read conflicting views on the safety of dry aging steaks at home. Is anyone here doing it?

I have done a 4 day just in the refer in my garage which stays at 33 degrees. Alton Brown did a good eats episode detailing how to do this - for longer cold aging you can buy special bags (link below) to do it safely w/o special equipment.

I have some of those those special bags but have not tried them yet since you need to do a big chuck of meat in them. With the AB method you can do one or two steaks pretty easy. I noticed a difference, I'll bet after 21 days when the enzymes have had more time and the meat drops more moister it must be even better.

In four days the steak I aged dropped ~8% (in weight, all water) that really helped concentrate the steak flavor - and it was still eaten before its sell by date - let me know and I'll dig up the season and episode number if you want to check out the AB show.

Also smoke guns work great - picked up a cheep on on amazon and have used it and been impressed with the results several times.

Done to medium rare, rested and cut very thin across the grain, it can make great sandwiches with some jus to dunk in. Otherwise, dice for Stroganoff or goulash as it can be tough.

i have used this roast for my chicago italian beefs.....machine sliced paper thin....bottom round works also, traditional i guess.

thought i read somewhere txcraig said bottom part of sirloin tip roast was where flap meat/steaks come from....

 Filet with broccoli and rice using the boiling in water method. It's my 6th time using the method and perfect rice every time. I have tried the reverse sear method and searing the steak first then the finish in a 250 degree oven. This steak was pulled at 127 degrees. I tend to get more consistent results by searing first. Now that the weather is getting warmer I may give the Webber a try at searing the steak then setting it off to the cool side to finish. Of course I will use some pecan chunks for a smokey flavor.

Flap steak seasoned with carne asada seasoning, grilled to a nice med rare, finished with lime after slicing and a piece of toasted English muffin bread :drool:

Yup, licking her chops!!! Thing is,I could have left that steak right there and mowed the lawn and other than a couple sniffs, meat would've still been there!!

That's impressive. Here, the meat would be long gone, and anything left hidden behind the sofa :-D

The first day I brought her home she ate a double batch of my wife's butter sugar cookie dough and another 4 sticks of butter she had out on the counter for another batch! Vet said she could've died from pancreatitis from that much fat!!! She was pretty sick for a few days and had to go out to poop about a hundred times! Never ate anything off the counter again, not even off the coffee table at her nose!!!🤣

Rough lesson, glad she was okay!


We once  left a just-baked-for-Thanksgiving  Sally Lunn bread on the kitchen table .and briefly left the house but didn't pay attention to the chair waiting to be used as a step to the table top. 


When we returned we saw the bread had been generously sampled...about 1/3 of the loaf! . No time to bake another to bring to the family gathering. So...we sliced away sections with canine toothmarks and  and served the rest  :-D

Bavette/flap steak, marinated in a chimichurri sauce overnite and grilled on the Big Easy Grill to a nice rare/med rare! Sliced and topped with caramelized onions and mushrooms on a tortilla. A little cauliflower potato salad to side!

I might have of that, but it's probably due to be replaced!

Jon! looks so great! Did you make the marinade or is it commercial ?

I embellished this a bit with some Sazón seasoning, extra garlic and extra red wine, wasn't too bad, fresh would've been better,  great sub though!
The dry chimichurri rocks in the potato salad with some fresh dill too!! :drool:
