This is a technique to quickly dry age beef. This amazing grill hack is the courtesy of Lisa Gwatney and her husband Russell. Both are world champions. Lisa won the World Food Championship in 2018 and with it the biggest purse in food sport. Her winning dish—steak of course. So, when Lisa talks steaks, we listen!
Ingredients & Tools
Favorite Steak Seasoning
Chop or blend the koji rice in a food processor
Lay out steaks on saran wrap one at a time. Coat steak liberally with Koji rice, flip and repeat. Add another sheet of saran wrap and wrap tightly.
Place in refrigerator for up to 48 hours. 12 hours minimum, 48 hours is best.
When ready to grill, scrape the rice off the meat. Do not rinse. If you are doing a comparison to no rice, notice the color difference in the steak. Lisa calls it umami funk!
Prep as usual for grilling steaks. Bring to room temperature and season. We layered Boars Night Out – White Lightning as a base, Lisa’s World Championship Steak Rub next and a dusting of Rusty Dust- one of Russell’s seasonings.
Grill your steaks hot & fast on GrillGrates either indoors or outdoors. We used the Ninja 10-in-1 Air Fry Oven.
