These guys at Guga Foods will dry age just about anything in the world, but all their previous exploits in dry-ageing have led them to his moment: dry-ageing the most expensive steak in the world.
This is real food porn. The most expensive steak in the world – wagyu beef grade A5, authenticated and certified by the producer - is considered to be the best and most sought-after steak around.
The wagyu steak is placed in a special bag that allows moisture to escape while letting nothing in, and placed on a cooling rack in a regular refrigerator for 35 days.
The result? When compared to the non-dry-aged wagyu steaks, the colour is a lot lighter. Once cooked at the same temperature, the two steaks look drastically different. The dry-aged steak has a lot less pink and so looks overcooked.
If the tasting is anything to go by, dry-ageing actually elevates the wagyu A5 to a higher level.
