Grilled NY Strip Steak Recipes

NY_Strip_Steak_RecipeNew York Strip is one of the GrillJunkie team’s favorite steaks to grill.  Grilling recipes for steak don’t get any simpler, succulent and enjoyable than this!  As with many high end steak cuts, less is more when grilling NY strip steaks.  The best way to grill this kind of steak is over direct high heat.  This method is ideal for NY Strip Steak as it seals in the juices and cooks the steak quickly, not allowing the steak to dry out. 

We encourage you to read this great article entitled 31 Science-Backed Health Benefits of Steak”. We believe it will fire you up!

Tip 1: Keep the Dry-Aged NY Strip Steaks dry by patting with paper towels before grilling…otherwise any excess moisture steams the meat leaving a tough chew!

Tip 2: Look for meat with the most marbling, i.e., visible grains of fat running through the steak. As the steak is cooking, the fat melts, naturally tenderizing the meat and building in flavor. (Avoid vein steaks — the ones with a half-moon-shaped vein running through the cut — because they’re too tough.)

 Grilled NY Strip Steak Recipes: EQUIPMENT

    • Gas or Charcoal Grill
    • Long-handled Grilling Tongs
    • Large Serving Plate
    • Small Sauce Pan

 Grilled NY Strip Steak Recipes: INGREDIENTS

  • 4 prime-grade, dry-aged New York strip steaks (1 1/2 inches thick, about 14 to 16 ounces each;  thickness is more important than the weight)
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup corn oilNY_Strip_Steak_Recipe
  • 8 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 8 teaspoons cracked black pepper


Grilled NY Strip Steak Recipes: PREPARATION

  • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat and skim the milk solids from the surface. This clarifies the butter. Set aside to cool.
  • Remove the steaks from the refrigerator about 30 to 40 minutes before grilling. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow the steaks to come to room temperature. Before grilling, shape and stabilize the steaks by gently pushing the sides into the center to create height.
  • Mix the oil and 1/2 cup of unsalted, clarified butter on a large serving plate. Put the steaks into the oil-butter mix to coat each side, then lift the steaks to allow the excess oil to drip off. (Make sure that the steaks don’t have too much oil-butter mix on them, as this will create unwanted flare-ups on the grill.)
  • Coat each side of the steaks with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of black pepper.


Grilled NY Strip Steak Recipes: GRILLING

  • Pre-heat Gas or Charcoal Grill to High heat. Note: For charcoal grills, wait until red hot coals peak and to all gray before placing steaks onto grill.
  • NY_Strip_Steak_RecipePlace the NY Strip Steaks on the hottest part of the grill. If at any time the grill flares up, move the steaks to the outside edge, returning them to the center when the flame dies down.
  • NEVER slide the steaks across the grill; gently pick them up with tongs. The key is not to flip them around. Ultimately you want to turn a New York strip steak only three times, cooking each side twice for 3 minutes at a time (for a total cooking time of 12 minutes), to get a rare steak with adequate char.
  • Remember!! The secret is dipping the steak in a combination of butter and oil, coating it with a generous layer of kosher salt and cracked black pepper, and searing it over the hottest possible fire.
  • The Goal — the perfect steak defined by the contrast between the charred exterior and the warm, juicy center.
