Meatguy Steakhouse X Bayashi: The Ultimate Dry Aged Cheese Steak Collaboration

The fusion of Indonesian and Japanese cultures in gastronomy is a tapestry of rich traditions and flavors, a culinary bridge that transcends borders. This confluence is not merely a fusion; it is a sophisticated layering of techniques, flavors, and philosophies. 

Japan is renowned for its intricate craftsmanship in food, where each ingredient speaks for itself. Indonesia, on the other hand, offers a wealth of spices and flavor profiles that ignite the palate. 

Bringing these two worlds together is akin to crafting an opulent symphony—a blend of individual notes that yield a resonating masterpiece.

From Japan to Indonesia: Bayashi

When we consider a collaboration, especially one that aims to redefine something as decadent as dry-aged cheese steak, the choice of partner becomes the linchpin for success or mediocrity.

Bayashi is no random selection in this arena. He is a culinary virtuoso from Japan, an influencer who has won the hearts of more than 53 million followers on TikTok. The platform even recognized his unique contribution to food culture by featuring him on their 2022 Discover List in the foodie category.

Selecting the right partner for a culinary collaboration is crucial, especially for something as innovative as dry-aged cheese steak. This is why Bayashi stands out as the ideal choice. 

With a global following of over 53 million, his influence in the food realm is monumental, transcending geographical boundaries. But it's not just about numbers; Bayashi is a maestro of meat, transforming each cut into an exquisite work of art. 

His ingenuity has even garnered him a spot on TikTok’s 2022 Discover List, confirming his role as a trendsetter in the food world. Together, Bayashi and Meatguy Steakhouse are set to create more than just a dish; they're crafting a gastronomic experience.

This collaboration, the first of its kind, witnesses Bayashi exploring his food craftsmanship in Indonesia at Meatguy Steakhouse. It's an extraordinary partnership between Dimsthemeatguy, known for his expertise in meat, and Bayashi, celebrated for his love of cheese.

His mastery in creating dishes that are not just visually appealing but also gastronomically satisfying makes this collaboration not just an experiment but a well-calculated gastronomic venture. 

The union of Bayashi's artistry and Meatguy Steakhouse's culinary excellence is set to introduce a product where each ingredient and technique is meticulously chosen and executed.

The steak in question will be dry-aged to perfection under specific temperature conditions between 1 to 3 degrees Celsius. The cheese, a curated selection of artisanal varieties, will undergo its own aging process to complement the steak’s texture and flavor profiles.

 Both ingredients will then be paired in a way that each bite offers a cascade of nuanced flavors, a true marvel for the palate.

Dry Aged Cheese Aging Process

Creating a dish as exquisite as Dry Aged Cheese Steak is an art that goes beyond mere cooking. It's a methodical yet innovative process, combining age-old traditions with contemporary techniques to achieve a taste that can only be described as transcendent.

Sourcing the Ingredients

Meat: We opt for the crème de la crème of beef, specifically Australian Wagyu Full Blood MB9+, coated with honey and adorned with slices of red and yellow cheddar, all crowned with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Known for its unrivaled marbling and flavor, this beef offers a rich base for the lavish cheese accompaniments.

Cheese: Our selection includes cheddar and Parmesan, premium cheeses that offer a complexity of flavors.

Honey: Organic honey is used to infuse an additional layer of sweetness and complexity into the cheese aging process.

The Technique of Dry Aging

At the core of this extraordinary dish is the dry aging process. Our Australian Wagyu Full Blood MB9+ undergoes a meticulous 45-day aging process, in a temperature-controlled environment that hovers between 1-3°C, and is set to be harvested on November 25, 2023. This allows the meat's flavors to intensify and its texture to become astonishingly tender.

Cheese and Honey Treatment

Our selected cheeses, cheddar and Parmesan, aren't just aged; they're enriched. These cheeses are meticulously layered with organic honey and placed in a separate aging chamber. The environment is regulated at a steady 13-14°C, allowing the cheeses to absorb the honey while enhancing their own flavors over a three-month period.

Dry Aged Cheese Quality and Uniqueness

At Meatguy Steakhouse, the creation of our Dry Aged Cheese Steak is far more than a culinary endeavor; it's an expression of artistry and craftsmanship. Every choice we make, from the ingredients to the cooking techniques, aims to elevate the gastronomic experience to an unprecedented level.

When it comes to choosing the meat, we leave no room for compromise. Our eyes are set on Ribeye Australian Wagyu Full-Blood MBS 9+, a cut of beef renowned for its unmatched marbling and flavor profile.

This isn't merely meat; this is the epitome of beef luxury, where every bite is a testament to a lineage of cattle raised under the most stringent quality conditions.

As if this decadence wasn't enough, we pair this sumptuous meat with an equally exceptional array of cheeses—cheddar and Parmesan—each boasting its own unique and robust flavor profile.

But we go a step further, enriching these cheeses with the natural sweetness of organic honey. It's a deliberate choice, one that allows us to bring new dimensions of flavor to a classic dish.

But what truly sets our Dry Aged Cheese Steak apart is the intricate care invested in every detail, including its unique visual presentation inspired by Japan's BORO’s / SASHIKO’s aesthetics..

We insist on a rigorous aging process that extends over one month, in highly controlled conditions, a practice that not only intensifies its flavors but also ensures a tenderness that could only be described as sublime. 

The cheeses too, with their honey enrichment, undergo their own aging process, acquiring flavors that are both intensified and diversified.

And there are the technical details, carried out with a surgeon's precision. The Wagyu is seared at an exact temperature of 160°C, while the blend of honey-enriched cheeses is baked at 180°C.

These are not arbitrary numbers but the result of meticulous experimentation aimed at capturing the very essence of each ingredient.

So, when you consider other offerings on the market, you'll find that while many may strive for excellence, none incorporate the level of ingenuity and quality that defines our Dry Aged Cheese Steak.

It's not just a dish; it's a culinary masterpiece expected to offer a nuanced taste profile—a hint of sweetness from the honey, a burst of umami, and the abundant richness of diverse cheeses. 

Don't let this unique opportunity pass you by. Our Dry Aged Cheese Steak, a culinary masterpiece months in the making, is available starting November 25th in limited quantities. Secure your place for this unforgettable dining experience by making a reservation now.
