    And it was cooked. First, I salted it generously and brought it to room temperature. Seared it hard in cast iron. Steamed greens on the side. Noticeable funk. Very easy to achieve sear due to low moisture content. Loved it! Will try to age longer next time!

    My son and DIL are visiting so it twisted my arm to cut aging time short and to cook the steak. It weighs just under 6 pounds from the original 6.75. It can definitely use a longer aging time judging by the texture. Still a little soft but not bad at all. Local store in Prince Frederick, MD had strip on sale for 6.99 a pound. A strikingly different color and texture. I will age this one for at least 4 weeks.

    Breakfast 2020!

    I treated leftover buckwheat as rice and fried it with ham, zucchini, and egg.
  9. A neighbor gave me zucchini from his garden. This is a foot long I can live with! I think people got nicer during the pandemic.

    @rotuts I love red boat fish sauce and also used for quick steak aging.

    SteakAger

    A touch over 6 lbs, it was 6.25 last week. Pleasantly dry and firm to touch. I might eat it next week...

    Lentils cooked lovingly by me in home made beef stock, canned chickpeas rinsed thoroughly by me, garlic chives that I am addicted to, leftover Chick-fil-A chicken. Egg on top makes it breakfast.

    Breakfast 2020!

    It took about a week. Flavor was identical to supermarket oyster mushrooms. It was a fun project for 10 dollars. I would not pay the original 20 dollars price.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Mushroom growing kits were half price ar World Market. Fun project! Fried with bacon and served over scrambled eggs.
  17. Not exactly food but toilet paper and paper towels supply is strong at Costco in Pentagon City.

    749 is for a refrigerator. My box was 250 or so. I think quality of meat and. length of aging determine the final product. Will keep you posted. This was a good regular Delmonico steak. I may try a prime or wagyu beef next.

    SteakAger

    It has a fan, not sure if it runs continuously. There is a thin wire that goes out and gets plugged in outside the fridge. Initial weight was 6.75 lbs, it is 6.25 today. i do not have a hygrometer
  20. I love dry aged steak. The ones in grocery stores like WF are usually not aged long enough. I have first encountered SteakAger in a local grocery store in Prince Frederick, MD called Nick’s. They make properly aged steaks but those are often sold out on Saturday when I am able to shop there. So it turns out that there is a home version. https://www.thesteakager.com Now, it takes the whole shelf in the refrigerator but we have an extra one in Beach House. It’s for tasty beverages to quote @rotuts. So I bought 7 pounds Delmonico and what you see is after one week of aging. I will try to be strong and allow it to age for at least four weeks. home version. There is a pouch with rock salt inside to reduce the moisture. Professional version from the store

    Dinner 2020

    Mapo tofu made with expired tofu (best by 5/20/20, please don’t judge), pork, sauce from a jar. Served over rice. It was lip tingling good!
  24. @liamsaunt Those prices are incredible! I am not seeing anything this high in Northern VA or Southern MD. Or while visiting kids in NJ this weekend. Harris Teeter recently had a dozen of eggs for 69 cents with limit of 2.

    Lunch 2020

    My DIL made mountain yam and pork ribs soup with lots of ginger. She blanched the ribs first. I think that blanching is a lot more efficient than skimming.
