Dry aging is a traditional method used to tenderize the beef and has been proven to improve the tastes and textures of the beef. Dry aged beef hangs in a temperature controlled room as it allows for the moisture to evaporate, increasing its shelf life. Dry aged beef has an average shelf life of one year and it has a lot less shrinkage when cooked allowing for you to receive more bang for your buck!!
