#5 - ADVENTURES IN DRY AGING: A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM
In the last episode, I pulled my short loin from my DRYAGER cabinet after 31 days. I got it of a fresh, hanging beef from my butcher friends at Golden Packing in New York’s Meatpacking district. This is one of the few remaining traditional butchers in a now gentrified neighborhood, and one of the few in the city that one can access whole hanging beef carcasses.
