What is dry aging?

Lazy C Beef  carcasses are dry aged for 12-14 days.  Unlike supermarket meat of 2-5 days.  Dry aging is the concentration and saturation of the natural beef flavor.  This process changes the beef  in two ways:   First, moisture is evaporated from the muscle.  This creates a greater concentration of flavor and taste.  Second, the beefs enzymes break down the connective tissues in the muscle, which makes for more tender meat.
