California Reserve Prime Dry Aged Porterhouse (The Old Ones)

California Reserve Prime Dry Aged Porterhouse (The Old Ones)

The Old Ones offer you four age levels longer than our baseline 30 day dry age. We have increased the age in 2 week intervals all the way up to 90 days.  This offers a chance to try older age profiles not usually available- here’s your chance to do a flight with your wine club! A combination of the New York and the Filet Mignon; it’s the perfect choice for the hearty appetite or to share with your sweetie (or whoever brought the wine – there’ll be time for your sweetie later).

The idea for this came from answering the phone!  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked what we have that’s new. My stock answer is: “Sorry we’ve already found all the parts of the cow”. Inevitably, the discussion shifts to “what about older?”.

Thus the origin of THE OLD ONES.

We couldn’t really go out this long for individual customers unless they were willing to buy the entire primal- which for most, is impractical. This new section solves that and affords you the opportunity to sample steaks from different eras without committing to a freezer full out front.

Who knows, we might even come up with some tasting note outlines!   Enjoy and have fun!

USDA PRIME: these Porterhouse Steaks are graded USDA Prime, the top tier of quality in the US. On average, about 9% of graded cattle will achieve Prime status, but taking things a step further, we inspect each primal that moves through our facility to guarantee quality. If we don’t think a piece deserves the Prime grade, we won’t ship it.

HOLSTEIN CATTLE: Our Porterhouse are cut from Holstein Cattle, raised in California predominantly in the Southeast corner of the state. The size (diameter) of Holstein steaks will be smaller than the Angus which will allow for a thicker steak. This is particularly noticeable on the Porterhouse, which will naturally have a smaller diameter filet than the Angus breed.

SHIP FROZEN: We cut these steaks once they reach the age goal and freeze immediately.  Once they are received they are good for 4-5days in your refrigerator, or 6-7months in the freezer.

DRY AGED: Before these were processed into steaks, the Shortloin that these Porterhouse steaks are cut from was Dry Aged for 45,60,75 or 90 days as individually labeled.
