Thanks for doing all that research!
We had a dear friend and neighbor who lived across the street when I was growing up who was the CEO of a meat processing company. He would bring us aged prime beef and we would do cookouts every weekend (we lived in SoCal) at either his home or ours.
He taught us that aged beef was the best. He used to say we should make sure we bought beef from steers and not cows. I was too young to listen enough to learn it all, but I sure liked eating the food.
Here is to my friend Ted Dembitz. May he rest in peace. Thank you for being part of a wonderful childhood.
