An easy method for grilling New York Strip Steaks on a Charcoal Grill. Keep it simple and season it up right, Dont overthink it.
New York Strip Steaks are on of the most popular cuts of beef because its the perfect balance of tenderness and beefy flavor. Its Leaner then a ribeye but has more fat than a Filet.
New York Strips Steaks are a great steak to grill because it doesn't require any complicated cooking methods or tricks. Keep it simple and grill it up.
All you need to do is season it with salt & Pepper, Get your Charcoal grill hot and sear that steak to the temperature you prefer.
When purchasing a New York strip teak make sure to ask the butcher for a center cut.
The Steak should have good marbling and a bright red color. If the steak looks grey or off colored that a good sign that the steak is not fresh and has begun to oxidize.
A Wagyu Strip Steak is gonna be the best quality but its also the most expensive by a lot. Prime is also a fantastic premium quality that's a bit more affordable and available locally.
After that we move dow to Choice and then Select. Both are still good steaks but they will be less tender then Wagyu or Prime New York Strip Steaks.
My best recommendation is buy the best steak you can afford. if its just a Tuesday night select or choice will due just fine but if its a special occasion or you want to impress you should treat yourself to a premium steak every once in a while.
Sometimes I'm in the mood for a really simple steak. Today was a salt and pepper day. I simply sprinkled salt and pepper on both sides of my huge steak.
Use a good quality Kosher salt and a coarse ground pepper. none of that table salt for a beautiful steak like this.
Once my grill was heated to the appropriate temperature I added my steak over direct heat. Make sure you have a probe thermometer on hand to monitor the temperature of the steaks throughout the grilling process.
