How to Cook New York Steak

New York steak also known as New York strip steak is a type of a beef steak cut which is particularly tender. It comes from the short loin, a muscle that does so little work just like the tenderloin. The difference between the two is that the short loin is a much larger part so it can be cut into larger portions.

Now, when cooking New York steak, I would say grilling is the best method. But it can also be oven baked, pan fried or broiled. I would also strongly suggest you get USDA Prime New York Strip simply because of its exceptional quality and its cut which is about 1½ inches thick at the least is just enough because thinner than that will give you a dry steak.

 How to Cook New York Steak

Before cooking, keep your steak at room temperature and pat it dry before marinating.

How to Grill New York Steak

First, trim off fat from the steak. The grill should be preheated to 500 degrees F to 600 degrees F, that would take about 15 minutes to reach that temperature. The point of this high temp grilling is to sear the steak on the outside and remain juicy in the inside. You can either rub your steak with olive oil or use your favorite steak marinade. After 5 minutes on the grill, turn the steak over. If you want those beautiful grill marks on your steak, halfway down the cooking time, give it a quarter turn.

How to Oven Bake New York Steak

If you are marinating, 1 to 2 hours is enough for your strip steak. And if you are not marinating, brush each side of your steak with oil. It should keep your steak moist.

Cook your steak in the oven preheated at 400 degrees F. You don’t have to turn your steak over since the oven cooks through. If you want it well done, give it 23 minutes, medium takes 20 minutes and rare takes just about 18 minutes.

How to Broil New York Steak

The broiling method is really good for your little marinade experiments. The strip steak has a natural flavor that is really great and works well with most steak marinades. Just remember to skip the salt because it would only dry out your steak while cooking.

To avoid overheating, keep the oven door open while broiling. At 375 degrees F, using a vented pan, everything should be great. If you like it rare, cook each side for less than 4 minutes. If you like it halfway done or medium, 4 minutes should be enough. Keep in mind that steaks cook for a little bit more after taking them out of the broiler or oven so be conscious about your cooking time so you don’t overdo them while they are in there.

How to Stove Top Grill New York Steak

Get yourself a ribbed base, cast iron grill pan. Have it preheated at mid-high for 15 minutes. If your steak is more than an inch thick, bake it instead for 4-5 minutes at 400 degrees F. After cooking, let the steak rest for 5 minutes to allow its juices to redistribute, otherwise the juices will just bleed out if you cut into it immediately and that will dry out your steak.
