To late to drybag?? was created by catnip
I have a 19lb ribeye that I cut in 1/2 to dry bag.... well had a bunch of troubles with the bags and ended up ordering more. Since I wasn't able to drybag them I wrapped in saran wrap and back into the fridge and waited for the new bags to arrive. I ordered the bags Monday (the day I removed it from the cyro wrap and they just arrived today (Saturday).

Is my ribeye still ok to use the drybags on or is it best to just foodsaver and throw them in the freezer for a primerib?

The meat doesn't have an off odor but there has been some browning in the meat. I don't want to ruin $130 worth of ribeye if usiung the drybag isn't the way to go.


Thanks for your help!!

Tanya

On a good note... I was able to get my sirlion into the drybag on Monday with a good seal and that one is looking great!!!

Tanya,
Welcome aboard! I answered your email sent from the other forum but I'll repeat my answer here.
Your meat will be OK to consume, plus it would be OK to go ahead and slip it into the Drybag. The browning you see is just normal from the contact with oxygen. The ONLY concern I would have is if you or your conditions while in the refrig during these days could have in any way been exposed to bacteria, but that's pretty unlikely - besides your first line of defense is your nose and you said it smells OK.

Thanks for getting back to me!

Their shouldn't be any issues with bacteria - it is in a 2nd fridge that mainly gets used for pop and beer. I will try and seal them up again with the new set of drybags that arrived today. I may have to try that paperclip tip to try and get a better seal...still have some issues with that.

Thanks again,
Tanya

There are several helpful threads here about sealing - have you scanned them? I'm assuming you may have since you already know the paperclip trick. The use of a section of panty hose will also aid in getting the air out of the bag while sealing and then removing the hose of course.

BTW it is not uncommon for people to wrestle with their first bagging attempt, but the learning curve is fast and you'll be bagging and sealing them like a pro in no time! Ron

I can back up his comments, your second time around will be SOOOO much easier. If you got the starter kit then you should have gotten bags for dry aging a smaller roast size cut. My first time around I did a new york strip, had issues with the bags, so I too cut it in half and used the roast bags.

Personally I find it helpful if you have another person to assist you with putting the primal into a bag. Furthermore turning the bag inside out and bagging that way is the BEST method in my opinion.

Oh and post pics please... I personally love food porn :cheer:
