  • There's nothing better than dry-aged or is there?
  • For today's cook dry-aging this beautiful export rib in butter
  • In a lot of butter!
  • I put the butter on top of the sous vide circulator
  • so that it would come to room temperature faster
  • then i put all of them into a pot to make it a nice smooth texture
  • once the butter became spreadable it is time to work on the meat
  • Now this is prime beef which i got
  • from DemKota from Minnesota since this is large enough I decided to split it in
  • half to test half dry-aging butter and the other half as real dry-aged.
  • After splitting it in half you can see the wonderful marbling. The first one I
  • started using the UMAI bags remember this is a special bag this is not a home
  • ziploc bag it is consider a membrane that goes around the meat to dry-age.
  • It is not a regular vacuum bag or a ziploc bag it allows you to dry aged at home
  • without any special equipment. For the second one there's not much to do except
  • clean the surface a little and cover the whole thing with butter. I spread it out
  • until every little piece was covered once the bottom was covered with butter
  • I flipped it so that I can spread the rest on top check it out
  • now there's pretty much nothing else to do but to put it in the refrigerator.
  • I am using my regular refrigerator it is not something as special so that it
  • maintains a temperature between 34 degrees to 37 degrees Fahrenheit now
  • there's nothing else to do but wait 60 days.
  • After sixty days this is what it looks like
  • I was surprised to find this black spot which freaked me out I honestly
  • thought my meat was completely ruined. What in the world was that? So I quickly
  • opened it up to find out what it was. After opening it out I was quickly
  • rewarded with this. It looked like perfection.
  • the only really odd thing for me is that
  • it smelled like butter it did not have a dry aged smell it did not
  • even have a beef smell it smelled like a hundred percent butter!
  • It was odd and satisfying at the same time this is looking extremely promising
  • Now let's go to the real dry aged after removing from the refrigerator I quickly
  • opened the UMAI bag as expected perfectly dry aged then I opened it out
  • after bringing it up to my nose and smelling it which is the first thing you
  • should do when dry-aging it smelled wonderful it smelled like
  • nutty beefy no foul smell whatsoever and the way that I'm used to
  • perfectly dry aged beef when putting them side-by-side you can tell the difference between them
  • I was very happy from the yield of the butter it looked like I was gonna have
  • almost no lost at all that is very promising so then I decided
  • to cut them into steaks.
  • As I'm removing the butter from the steak this is the black spot we
  • saw earlier as you can see is just dried blood nothing else no big deal
  • and the dry-aged steaks looked perfect
  • once the steak was cut it was time to trim them. Remember never throw your
  • trimmings away there's a lot of different things you can do with it and
  • I have shown that in the channel already. As expected we did have quite a bit of
  • lost between the dry aged steak. Now it's time for the butter. Once the butter was
  • removed I was surprised because the edges were all oxidized in both sides.
  • That did not look very good to me and after smelling it it didn't had a
  • little funky smell once you pass the butter obviously. So I decided to trim it.
  • Once they were completely trimmed I put them side by side so that you can see
  • the difference between them dry aged butter on the left
  • and the real dry aged on the right
  • But now that we have these two beautiful steaks ready it is time to cook them and
  • see how they taste. To ensure I'm cooking both steaks at the
  • exact same temperature I am using my wireless thermometer so that me and
  • Angel can really taste the flavor of these steaks
  • I am only seasoning them with salt and pepper. Now that we have these beautiful
  • steaks ready it is time to cook them and I am going to be reverse searing them
  • with the slow an d sear and the weber kettle.
  • So let's do it!
  • Wow.
  • What do you think Angel? Wow it looks awesome!
  • It looks impressive we are starving are you ready
  • to try it? I'm ready to go! They are different we have a and B are
  • you ready? Oh we got a little experiment? We got a little steak
  • experiment today Angel. Oh man let's go let's go. Let's go enough talking this one is very
  • special here it is for you my friend Were cutting it! Cheers!
  • That is fantastic!
  • Hmm it is super tender, super juicy, extremely flavorful
  • What do you doing? Its awesome. No hold on you gotta. This one is seconds worthy.
  • Hold on, hold on not yet Angel!
  • Alright lets eat another one I just got that one in half.
  • I can't it is fantastic, wow this time you got the big one. It is incredible. Wow!
  • so juicy
  • Are you ready for the second one? Let's go. Now I'm excited to find out how this one tastes.
  • Whats the what are we testing? I'm gonna tell you right after we try it. We testing the
  • juiciness? Right after we try it I'm gonna let you know I'll take that one
  • you take the bigger one you can take the big one this is the bigger one. All right
  • Angel let's try it, cheers buddy!
  • I've been robbed. Cheers
  • hmm way tender way flavorful a unique taste
  • I already got it I know what happened. What happened Angel
  • which one is better for you Angel
  • I know what happened here. What happened?
  • This one is dry aged Wow you can tell you can
  • tell my boy is learning everybody he is learning you get that nice little funk
  • you know you know what I think it is but it tastes like a little bit to me I mean
  • I don't know maybe other people say something else but to me as I go kind of
  • like a wine make a wine you taste that go something like that like it's not
  • like yeah I know you say he's like nutty I say it's kind of like wine look it's a
  • wine ish flavor like you can't get a grasp around it it has an additional
  • type of flavor that you don't really know how to describe that I agree with
  • Angel, remember the butter steak you've been asking me to do it forever
  • oh the one that's the butter steak that's a straight butter block that's
  • the butter steak, it is incredible everybody. Now is it dry aged?
  • it doesn't have the same flavor as dry aged to me
  • I agree with you it's a very good steak it
  • is a fantastic steak obviously this is a prime steak we started off with the best
  • of the best but at the same time it is not a dry aged steak it doesn't have
  • that nice funk. Right? That little funk of dry aged not even close however it is
  • incredible it is incredible I mean I like it a lot
  • but I don't think that is dry aged in my opinion is not really too dry aged
  • I agree with you Angel it is not dry aged it doesn't have that funk but it is
  • incredible everybody and it's super soft and it's super tender and juicy and
  • yum but I don't think it tastes dry aged I agree with you it is not a dry aged
  • steak. Is it fantastic? Yes. Is it incredible? Yes. Is it tender? Yes.
  • Juicy? Yes. Does it have the dry aged funk? No, it does not not this time. Angel if you
  • have to pick a steak and you were in a restaurant and you got a or B which one do you like better
  • well here's the thing mm-hmm this one has a
  • very strong meat flavor this one has a very strong dry aged meat flavor which
  • one do you prefer if I'm in the mood for something that tastes dry aged, dry aged if I'm
  • in the mood for something that says very meety this one. That is not a fair
  • conclusion you gotta give me an answer you have to pick a steak A or B
  • If you don't have a choice and you're going to die Angel we have steak A and we
  • have steak B which one would you pick? The dry aged I am with angel a hundred
  • percent the dry aged steak is better however this steak is fantastic
  • I recommend you giving it a try once will I do it again no I don't know it's too
  • much work to do it the butter is very messy you know butter everywhere you
  • know we have butter when we were doing this up upright noses hair you know
  • cleaning the butter after I a tremendous amount of work I would not do
  • it again but it is good it is not bad. It's tasty. It's tasty now the dry aged
  • is way better and I recommend that a hundred percent dry age is dry age bro
  • Dry age is dry age! I don't know if this is gonna really count as dry aged you had it in
  • the fridge for a while but I feel like what happened is that it kind of just
  • vacuum-sealed . It vacuum sealed in butter, you are absolutely right. It kind of just vacuum
  • sealed the steak in butter. That is a perfect description vacuum seal the
  • steak in butter when you open the steak is just feel like a fresh steak it
  • doesn't feel like you know this one when you touch it it's like hard hardcore but
  • after you cook it it's so soft and tender this one is exactly like a fresh
  • steak but I more tender than a fresh steak that's the only thing I can tell.
  • And I don't know that's because it's prime or what but that was a very good
  • vacuum seal we had. That's another thing too.
  • It had a really good vacuum seal. You call the butter experiment a vacuum sealer Angel!
  • The vacuum sealing experiment. That's a good explanation right there it is a vacuum sealer of butter
  • because I don't know if it does anything at all because the steak is already a very high
  • quality. This one it does something I could tell you that. Like the butter was
  • salty butter. Yea it was salty butter. So maybe it dried it a little bit
  • but it was mostly just. Not really. I feel like it was just sealed
  • yeah I agree with you I like it though don't get me wrong everybody the butter
  • aged one is fantastic but it does not come close to the real deal.

  • to cook this one Sous vide so that the guys in the office can try it as well maybe
  • has a different flavor on sous-vide right that's a good idea

  • on we gotta give. Fine we can give it to them fine! Is only fair if they try it too- comment below
