New York Strip Steak

The New York Strip Steak is cuts of beef that come from the most tender part of the short loin. It’s the boneless part of the top loin and is the steak on the side of a T-bone or Porterhouse across from the filet mignon. Depending on the region, it may also be known as a Kansas City Strip steak or, just plainly, strip steak.

Since this cut of beef is so tender, it is best when cooked quickly over high heat, such as broiling, searing, or grilling. The current costs of strip steaks range from $15 to $30 a pound, depending upon the quality. In my opinion, the optimal size for a strip steak is between 12 and 18 ounces.

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Steak – You will use a New York or Kansas City strip steak for this recipe.
  • Oil – I prefer to use olive oil. However, you can use your favorite oil.
  • Butter – Always use unsalted butter.
  • Garlic – A few garlic cloves will go a long way to enhancing the flavor of the steak.
  • Herbs – Fresh thyme or rosemary works best.

How to Cook a New York Strip Steak

I’m not much for flipping meat or other proteins back and forth to try and achieve equal browning or grill marks on both sides. My philosophy is to cook steak for longer on the first side and then flip it and cook it for half the time of the first side and serve it.

Doing this allows getting a deep caramelized golden brown on 1 side without overcooking it.

  • Season the strip steak on both sides with sea salt and pepper. Do not be afraid of salt or pepper when seasoning the Strip Steak; Make sure there is salt all over every square centimeter of the meat. There is nothing worse than unseasoned food, nothing, so season it well.

  • Next, add theoil to a large frying pan or cast iron skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke lightly.
  • Place the steaks into the pan and immediately turn to medium-high heat. Be sure not to crowd the pan to sear the steak, not steam it.
  • Add garliccloves, fresh thyme or rosemary, and unsalted butter.

  • Cook the steaks for2 minutes before moving them around the pan to ensure it becomes browned on every square millimeter of the steak.
  • After 5-6 minutes of cooking, flip the steak over and repeat the process.

  • Remove the steak after2-3 minutes of cooking on the other side and set it on a cutting board or plate for 3-4 minutes to rest for a medium rare internal temperature.
  • Slice and serve with Lyonnaise Potatoes.

Chef Notes + Tips

  • Some things I preferto cook with are olive, ghee, clarified butter, or beef tallow. Do not be limited by these, and please cook with your desired fat or oil.
  • I like adding herbs and garlic to the steak while moving it around in the pan.
  • If you feel likeyou may have cooked it a bit too long, set it upright when resting it to help heat escape more quickly.
  • When the steaks are smaller in weight, you may need to adjust cooking times by 1 minute per side.

    This New York Strip Steak and the flavor of the added herbs was on point! I also baked an onion with butter and beef bouillon for on the side. It was all delicious! The steak was amazing and unlike others I didn’t have the splatter problem they mentioned. I couldn’t believe how easy and quick it was to have a great steak! No need to pay high dollar at a restaurant any more! ha ha Thanks Chef!

          Good fast way to cook a steak. Love the edition of butter, garlic and fresh herbs! I hated the mess!! Spattered grease intensely though attempted to control with spatter screen.
          Prefer barbecue or oven/broiler for this reason.
