As of those pictures the answer is no, but since then yes – in fact I hand trimmed each one individually. In the past I have tried to trim the whole primal before slicing and that didn’t seem to satisfy me. I should have added though that I trimmed off 1.5 pounds of excessive fat before I even bagged it for aging.
I’ve been looking into techniques for cutting down sub-primals, and a running theme is “don’t trim (certain parts of) the fat until you cut into steaks. It seems that cutting the aging trim off might follow the same wisdom, so I’m going to try that next time.
