Bought a couple of things at Ends Meats today - petite tender for dinner tonight, and some gorgeous coarsely ground beef and pork for a sugo I plan on making tomorrow. Or maybe today.

 

He had a hunk of beef hanging that had been hanging there since September 20th - so 107 day dry aged. It looked so, so funky.

 

Really nice guy, I like this place a lot, and his focus on cured meats is very cool.  I look forward to using the guanciale I got from him as well.

 

112 days, check. I bought a slab for a special birthday dinner for my soon-to-be 15-year-old. And a 21 day porterhouse for those at the table who will be freaked out by quite that much funk.

 

FWIW, yeah, 112 days brought some crazy funk. The sear tasted like ultra-aged parmesan. The 21-day porterhouse had a good bit of minerality too; I thought it would pale in comparison, but both cuts were great.

Rye.  Aquavit.  Mustard powder.  Schwartz's Montreal steak spice mix.  Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray.

 

Mix.   Drink.  Vomit.

 

I'm reminded of one of my favorites from Amor Y Amargo's heyday -- Scandi Gibson

 

2 oz Krogstad Aquavit

1 oz Cocchi Americano

15 drops Bitterman's Celery Shrub

10 drops Bitterman's Hellfire Shrub

cocktail onion

 

As advertised, tastes like rye bread in a glass. Many years later, still in regular rotation at home.
