Default 21 day dry-aged prime strip loin from Costco

There was another thread going about dry-aging some meat so I thought I would share the results of my latest dry-aging at home.

I used http://www.drybagsteak.com/ to do so in a fridge that is used to keep beer etc in it. The fridge stays around 36* or so and the humidity is probably in the 70's which is not ideal for dry aging, but the bags make up for it by creating a membrane that allows moisture out but not back in.

They should start paying me for making these kinds of posts.

Anyways, as you can see below you lose a LOT to trim. I wish I had taken a before and after pic, but you can still see all the trim there. I think it yielded nine 1.75" steaks. They are farking delicious also.

I think I'm going to go for another week next time I dry age some.

Awesome work, Sir! I hope they taste as good as they look.

I was going to do a strip loin if I couldn't get ahold of a ribeye, but I got lucky.

Can you do anything with the trimmings? Cook the heck out of it for broth or Turn into scraps for dog food? Just curious how to reduce waste.

Not that I know of, but that's a great question. I hate how much waste the process produced as well, but the flavor is amazing.
