Cook Dry-Aged Beef Like a Champ

This unique process allows the meat to release moisture as it develops a delicious, deep flavor and a more tender texture. While it can be priced higher than regular beef, it's considered a premium product.

How to Cook the Best Dry-Aged Beef
Even though there might be dozens of methods for cooking this type of beef, a few general tips can help you cook it to perfection.
Lightly Season the Beef
It may be tempting to season your dry-aged beef heavily but remember that this type of meat has a strong flavor already. So, you don't need to season it much at all. A light dusting of salt and pepper is all many people need - a little goes a long way.
Watch the Temperature (Even Before Cooking)
You must be aware of the temperature of the meat before you begin cooking it. It's important to bring the beef to room temperature as it will ensure that your dry-aged beef cooks evenly.
Take the meat out of the refrigerator or cooler and let it sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes (or more if it's a very large cut of meat). Then you can get cooking.
Turn Up the Heat
Dry-aged beef has the best flavor and texture when it's cooked over high heat. This is because the outside gets a nice sear, which seals in the juices! How long should you cook it? If you want a medium-rare steak, only cook your beef for about two or three minutes per side.
Let It Be
Let your dry-aged beef rest before you start slicing it up. You only need to let it rest for about five or ten minutes. When you let the meat rest, you allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat. Then you can slice and serve it.
