In the past when I've ordered steaks it killed my dining experience. I end up sitting and comparing the restaurant steak to my own, I start thinking about what that piece of meat would have cost at Land And Sea, (my amazing local meat market), and I regret paying for something I would have had more fun grilling at home.
The main key to grilling a great steak at home? Never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, ever, ever, shut the lid of the grill. Here's a quick step-by-step guide on how to cook one of America's simplest, yet most amazing main dishes, The New York Strip.
Prep Time: 1 Minute
Marinade Time: 30 minutes with salt.
Cook Time: Varies - between 12 and 18 minutes.
New York Strip Steak
Kosher or Sea Salt
Canola Grill Spray
Step 1 - Place steaks on a wood cutting board or plate and add salt.
Step 2 - Allow steaks to sit roughly 30 minutes, or until salt has liquefied and soaked into the meat. We want the steaks to get close to room temperature before cooking.
Step 3 - Light grill and heat. Normally I close the lid and turn mine on high for around 5 minutes, then scrape grate with a Grill Daddy or grill brush.
Step 4 - Lightly spray grates with Grill Spray or Canola Oil.
Step 5 - Set steaks on grate over flame.
Step 6 - Allow steaks to char on one side, roughly 4 minutes.
Step 7 - Flip steaks and char opposite side.
Step 8 - Check meat temperature. Using chart below - decide if steak is ready.
Step 9 - Let steak rest 5 minutes!
Step 10 - Eat! You did that!
In the Tampa area- we recommend Land and Sea Market for all of your meat needs!
