Dry Aged Beef
Dry aging is a high-quality technique used to create cuts of beef with outstanding flavor and texture that is coveted by chefs and serious cooks throughout the world. At AJ'S Fine Foods, we have developed a technique that compares to some of the finest in the world.
We begin with whole unwrapped cuts of USDA Prime Beef and place them in specially constructed storage lockers with three side windows so that the aging process can be observed by all. In this locker the beef is aged from 21 to 30 days. This locker's environment, from temperature and humidity to air circulation, lighting and cleanliness is strictly regulated to conform to AJ'S strict standards.
Over the duration of the dry aging process, the beef will lose up to 25% of its original weight. As it loses moisture, the flavor is allowed to develop, becoming richer and even more intense. At the same time, natural enzymes in the meat break down the muscle tissue, ensuring a tenderness that can't be replicated otherwise.
Dry aging beef requires very special care, time, and the best-quality USDA prime beef available. For this reason, you don't often see retailers taking the extra steps to offer it to their customers. We know our shoppers are committed not only to fine food, but the best in quality, so we believe they're worth the effort. AJ'S USDA prime dry aged beef is superb in taste, texture, and tenderness, and we urge our discerning customers to experience the difference dry aging makes.
