The NY Strip…(aka KC Strip) is a legendary steak and there's a good reason for that. It is simply hard to match the combination of texture, tenderness and flavor this cut delivers every time it hits a plate. The NY Strip is cut from the loin and our 12 oz steaks average 1.25" thick. The extra thickness means they take a little longer on the grill (7 min per side) or 12 to 13 minutes in a 400 degree oven, but it's worth it. All of our NY Strips are wet aged 35 days, and flash frozen after being cut fresh by a local artisan butcher shop. NEVER THAW IN A MICROWAVE - this can damage the product. ALWAYS thaw frozen beef in the refrigerator or a pan of cold water. DO NOT remove cryovac packaging until product has thawed completely.
