Looks like I’m just chatting with myself :laugh: but I want to add something I really did learn. First of all though let me back up. I bought that sub-primal from a local popular butcher shop. It was still in the cryovac pack. After I opened the bag at home I was very disappointed with the huge amount of fat. I ended up trimming off 2 pounds of ugly fat before I sealed it in the Drybag.
What I learned from that video was about that “flap” layer that has the grain running crosswise. By the time I had aged the meat for 60 days that flap had lost considerable size and was a bear to try to figure out just where it was! In the future when I age a sirloin I will follow the video and trim off that flap first. Then…deciding how to slice it will be simple and much easier!
