New York Strip Steak Recipe Ingredients:
2 New York strip steaks
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
½ stick of butter
2 fresh thyme stems
3 garlic cloves
How To Cook NY Strip Steak:
Season the steaks with salt and pepper
Place in a heated cast iron skillet (If you want pan-seared steaks, it is essential to have a hot pan before you add the cut of beef to the pan.)
Sear on both sides
Then add butter, garlic, and thyme
Cook 6-8 minutes (for medium rare), frequently spooning butter over top of steak and flipping halfway through
You may use a meat thermometer in the center of the steaks to help determine when it is done if you like. According to Southern Living, “The FDA recommends cooking steak to the temperature of 145 degrees F, which will result in a medium-well steak.”
Drizzle the red wine reduction sauce over the pan seared New York strip steaks and serve with risotto or potato gratin and vegetable of choice. Garnish with fresh rosemary.
