Aged Steaks...Thanks CarolinaQue

Last weekend CarolinaQue grilled his aged steaks. I wanted to try some so I bought some New York strips from Costco's last Sunday. I started aging them on Tuesday. There were five in the package so I decided to grill the smallest two tonight. I'll grill the other three tomorrow.

I have to say they have a GREAT taste. Some of the fat on the sides was tough but the meat very well flavored. I only seasoned them with kosher salt and fresh black pepper. I used Original Lump Charcoal on my Weber Smokey Joe grill.

I grilled them just a tad too long.

Here are the pictures.








The charcoal getting hot.




Thanks CarolinaQue.

gator,

In photobucket click the box to select the photos. You can select one or use the box at the bottom of the album and select all, then click the generate HTML and IMG code. It will take you to another screen with the code. Select and paste the code here.

I use image resizer which is free from Microsoft Power Toys before I put my photo in photobucket.

What is the taste difference between a non-aged steak?

Greg,

Concerning the taste of the aged beef ...now as I was eating the New York strip last night it tasted more flavorful...maybe a richer beef taste. I just know it taste better than a regular New York strip I pick up at the supermarket and then throw on the grill.

With that said as I was eating the New York strip the thought crossed my mind that I had never grilled a New York strip from Costco's before so I may have to try a non-aged one from them. I've eaten their sirloin steaks which are good just out of the package...but I need to compare apples to apples.

I'm grilling three more tonight.

Your new Avatar looks great.

A stronger, more concentrated beef flavor. It's also more tender than a just bought steak.

Well this German fella down at the local watering hole says just put em on a plate (or the original packaging) in the ice box uncovered for about a week. Flip em and drain the blood once a day. I tried it on some round steak and it seem to work purty well.
