However, "dry aging" is getting more attention among people who aims for high quality.
"Dry aging" requires fixed temperature, humidity, ventilation and strict management. Under these conditions, the meat will carefully be aged after 1 month. The result is the meat with twice the umami and sweetness, and a matured flavor similar to nuts.
