My First try, Entrecote beef. was created by SavagePeanut
Hi Everyone,
First off I would like to say thank you for this forum. You guys are a community worth being a part of.

This is my first time trying the dry age bags, and I decided to age Entrecote. It came straight from my butcher after i asked him to remove the bone, and leave the fat. It's a big chunk of meat. I froze its, and the next day I sealed it inside the dry age bag.
The process of vacuum and seal was harder than I imagined, I tried my best to get a good vacuum but those bags are not what I'm used to.
I have attached a picture of the Chunk.
1.would like to hear any comments about the vacuum seal. Is it good enough?
2. The fact I didn't thaw the meat, would that make any difference with ageing process.

Thank you all and I'll update every week if you guys are interested.

The seal looks OK - but here's the problem...since you didn't thaw the meat first then as it thaws in the bag you will see excessive water collect in the bag which will then need to be drained off. Your best bet will be to force the water to a corner of the bag, puncture it, drain and then tape over the hole.
