- Umai Dry Aging Bags (Ribeye Roll Pack)
- Vaccum Sealer (Foodsaver or like type)
- Full Ribeye Roast (4-6 bone recommended)
- Wear gloves while handling meat in packaging
- Remove steak from retail packaging and set aside
- Prep dry bag per instructions, being careful to not get any cuts or crinkles in the bag
- Allow steaks to dry age from 28 days up to 45. Umai recommends 28 days.
- When ready for removal, remove dry bag and discard.
- Trim away all of the pelicle (the dry dark parts) and then portion into steaks
- Prep and cook the way you prefer. These do well in cast iron, sous vide or even reverse seared with smoke! Just don't cook it well done. We'll find you.
