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.
Weight: 8 oz
The 8oz NY Strip is a great little steak. The first question many people ask is, “how long should I cook it on each side?”….there is not a consistent answer to that question as there are MANY variables that effect cook time, from the steaks starting temp to the grill surface temp to the ambient temp in which the steak is being cooked. Beyond that, there is a simpler way that is more accurate. The internal temperature of the steak. The way the cooking heat is applied isn’t all that critical, cooking heat can be any variety of methods from a wood fire to a broiler to sous vide; there are MANY great methods to cook a steak. We personally prefer to cook our steaks “rare” and we typically remove smaller steaks like the 8oz NY Strip from the heat source when the internal temperature reaches approximately 118F. The internal temperature will continue to coast up to somewhere in the 130F range. This “coast up” is why adequate “rest time” after cooking is so critical when it comes to cooking the perfect steak. The 8oz NY Strips is a somewhat thinner steak, thus requiring a bit more attention due to the decreased the amount of time to reach finishing temperature.
Order of operations:
• Thaw slowly – submerge in a pan of cool water if you’re in a hurry, NEVER a microwave.
• Season – Your preferred seasoning, to taste. Some folks apply oil to the steak prior to seasoning, we do not believe that is the best approach, nor do we recommend it.
• Cook – Keep track of the internal temp, that’ll tell you when it’s done. Get a good digital thermometer.
• Rest – 5 to 10 minutes is best. Don’t cover the steak when it rests, it will stay warm, covering will cause the “coast up” temp to be higher than desired in most cases.
• Serve – Let your guests carve their own steak, unless they’re little kids or you’re a control freak…cutting a steak is part of a pleasurable eating experience.
The 8oz NY Strip packs a lot of quality into a small package. It hails from the “loin” section of the beef and is a great combination of flavor, texture, tenderness and cook ability. NY Strip steaks are typically boneless, with the exception of its presence on the Porterhouse. The NY Strip will exhibit “marbling” similar to that of the Ribeye, which is what gives the steak it’s flavor and juicy nature. We cut our 8oz NY Strips to approximately .75” thick. All cattle vary in size so the thickness of the steaks will vary a degree from steak to steak based on the animal from which it came. Lots of folks ask us why our steak thickness varies, and the reason is that we cut our steaks to a specific weight, given the fact that all cattle are slightly different sizes, that means that the variation shows up in the thickness of the steak. If we cut all the steaks to the same thickness, then the weight of the steaks would vary….which would greatly complicate selling them online. All of our beef is “wet aged” which is a fairly common thing among beef producers. That said, we wet age our beef a minimum of 35 days, which is longer than much of our competition. This makes a difference in flavor and tenderness. The process of wet aging allows enzymes that are naturally present in beef to begin to break down and tenderize the beef. It has more effect on tenderness than it does flavor. Dry Aging, by comparison, is a much different process that relies on the same naturally occurring enzymes to tenderize the beef and dry aging also allows moisture to migrate out of the beef which tends to concentrate the flavor. Dry Aging is a process that is much more like aging artisanal cheese and tends to take on a stronger flavor that not all consumers enjoy. We’ve found “wet aging” for an extended period to be the best case scenario for us.
The order was for my neighbor’s birthday gift. The package arrived thawed. After contact, the second package was sent the same method and also arrived thawed. On the third package I requested different delivery method, overnight, and it arrived frozen. Kayla was very helpful resolving the issue. Kudos to her.
I live in Oregon, but from Nebraska, so I think Nebraska beef is the best. That said, unless Nebraska Beef switch delivery method, Not sure I would order again. Sorry, just too much hassle. Kim
Nebraska Star Beef is on par with the very best beef I’ve had in my half century of life!!
Thanks for the kind words, Jeremy! We do our best to produce the highest quality Angus beef!
Just not special enough to justify the price.
I bought these for a gift to my parents and they said they were absolutely delicious! I will buy them again!
