Spaghetti With Basil Pesto and Dry-Aged Steak

What is Dry Aging?

Dry Aged steak is king among meat. Dry Aging meat allows for natural flavours to become more intense, as well as the tenderisation of texture.

The perfect steak requires the proper preparation

  • Keep the steak at room temperature for 30-60min prior to cooking.
  • Salt the steak then leave it for 45min for the salt to be absorbed.
  • Ensure the steak is as dry as possible, dab with paper/kitchen towel.
  • Preheat pan with oil. Cook for 60-90s on each side.
