Dry aged

Meat (usually beef) that is “dry aged” is hung in a temperature- and humidity-controlled room for a period of weeks, during which microbes and enzymes break down the connective tissue, making the meat more tender. Most beef is “wet aged” in plastic bags, which reduces the amount of water (and therefore money) that is lost and hastens the process. Many people believe dry aging results in superior flavor.
