28 day matured

Sounds like a nice bit of cheese ? ?

 

No, actually it is a "selling point" for meat, by Aldi.... what it actually means, is... 


This bit of meat you are buying has been dead for at least 28 days... Shocked

 

 

 

Enjoy ! .Smiley

Re: 28 day matured

Just a standard definition of being well hung Wink

Seriously though I think most meats have to be matured or 'hung' for a certain amount of time in order to improve the flavour. Something to do with enzymes and water evaporation. 

Anybody tried really fresh meat? Don't think I have to be honest.

Ah no, fish has to fresh off the line mackerel especially. Used to cook ours on the boat. Smiley

I used to gut and wash them in the surf then cook them on the beach - with crusty brown bread.

The couple of boats I had were inflatables so cooking there was out.Smiley

If you can cook fish with crusty brown bread then cooking on an inflatable should be easy for you. Funny

Re: 28 day matured

Decent meats are usually hung for 28 days (or more), cos that's the way it's supposed to be done, but supermarkets tend to buy stuff that's only hung for a couple of days because it's cheaper, but not as good, but they don't care so long as they get their profit...

Re: 28 day matured

Or is the meat that bad it has to be half rotted to make it edible?

Rotted?? You might want to read up on the hanging process before saying such silly things... Roll eyes

Re: 28 day matured

If memory serves me correctly there was an article on the BBC a few years back about how some people eat rotten meat as part of their daily diet and when I say rotten I mean rancid.

Re: 28 day matured

There's a type of rotten fish from I think the netherlands (could be completely wrong on that one!!) which comes in a can that tends to be swollen up and bulging from all the rotting gases that are trying to escape, and that the smell is so bad they have to open the cans underwater, and thoroughly wash the stuff to make it "edible", I'll take that 28 day matured steak thanks...

Re: 28 day matured

My favourite on the barbecue Aldi's 28 matured steak either T-bone or Ribeye, if I have guests I cut it into strips and serve it in a heap for people to help themselves.

Aldi pioneered it and now Tesco and Asda are copying them. Tesco used to offer their steak with all the fat cut off and no marbling which was completely tastless.
For a good steak you need marbling and some fat and 28 days mature.
