For the past year, The Meat & Wine Co has served up a variety of dry-aged steaks.
Aged in-house and prepared with a unique ageing method that infuses subtle flavours, these world-class cuts have been immensely popular with diners.
A year ago, The Meat & Wine Co introduced the dry-aged truffle steak; a steak aged with truffle in the butter for an infusion so rich and delectable that it became an immediate all-time favourite for our chefs and diners alike.
This June, as Australia delves back into truffle season, The Meat & Wine Co is doing it all again.
With hundreds of five-star reviews, The Meat & Wine Co is one of Australia’s favourite steak restaurants and right now – and for a limited time – the aged Monte Rib-Eye has been infused with fresh Australian winter truffles. Book your table now, before it’s gone.
Dry-aged steak with fresh truffle
Dry ageing steak relies on a natural process. Under temperature- and humidity-controlled conditions, beef will form a tough crust as it ages, which enhances the interior flavour, helps to retain moisture, and ensures a beautiful, tender final cut. This crust is cut away and discarded once the beef is aged.
Yet this crust is formed from the beef itself, meaning that a large amount of premium meat is simply thrown away, creating waste and raising the cost of the final product.
To reduce waste and cost, The Meat & Wine Co established a process that relies on a natural crust to begin forming, then adds a generous layer of butter and fat to halt the crust-formation but continues the ageing process.
With this ingenious layer, The Meat & Wine Co discovered one more thing – flavour infusions. By adding some of the most flavourful herbs and ingredients known to man, they added subtle hints of something entirely new to their dry aged steak.
That’s how, for every batch of dry aged steak The Meat & Wine Co make, they add something extra special. Right now, that infusion is the revered truffle, and supplies are limited.
The ‘diamond’ of the kitchen’
The truffle is a rare, exclusive fungus that grows underground in specific conditions around the roots of certain trees. Not only is it rare, but it is also exceptionally difficult to cultivate or find in the wild – often requiring trained dogs to sniff them out.
The result is one of the most surreal, inexplicable, and utterly delectable flavours on the planet. It’s why it’s known as the ‘diamond of the kitchen’, and why it is so highly prized amongst chefs and haute cuisine.
Truffles have been described as garlicy, earthy, musky, and pungent, but it really is such a unique flavour that it’s something everyone must experience for themselves.
Humans have been enjoying truffles for thousands of years, and they have always been regarded as something truly special, which is why The Meat & Wine Co is so excited to offer truffle steak to our diners for a limited time.
The steakhouse that innovates
The Meat & Wine Co is always innovating, which is how they created this incredible process for dry ageing steak, and why we are able to offer truffle-infused steak that will reset your bar for what great steak can be.
