What to look for When Buying New York Strip Steaks

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.

Grades of New York Strip Steaks

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.

My Method For Grilling New York Strip Steaks

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.
