We are saying the same thing – I just used fewer words when I had said:
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.
Anyway – jumping to today’s sirloin that had a fat cap that looked like this:
When I unwrapped it I found that fat cap was thumbnail hard and 1/2″ thick. So I decided to trim at least the outer layer off leaving what I believe to be still protective, but an easier layer for moisture to leave in the aging process – guess we’ll see in several weeks!
