After 24 hours, remove, unwrap, discard cheesecloth and wrap with a fresh piece. Place back in the refrigerator for 6 to 9 days undisturbed. Make sure to check your refrigerator for temperature accuracy prior to dry aging. Keep in bottom/back of refrigerator and if possible, a refrigerator that doesn't get opened often.

Horseradish Gremolata:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk butter with garlic, horseradish, vinegar, zest and salt. Stir in the parsley.
