Cut from the loin that produces the most premier cuts of beef, our New York Strip Steak is full of fine grain marbling and a bold, intense beef flavor. Thick cut (1.5") and beautifully marbled, this is THE steak for flavor!
A truly great steak requires only a little salt for preparation (and maybe pepper if you prefer that). But we have a secret ingredient that creates some of the most intense beef flavor you'll ever experience. It's not something you'll find in your spice rack and you certainly can't sprinkle it on. In fact, it's something you can't even touch. Our secret ingredient is TIME. While quickly grown beef that most consumers are familiar with might deliver some tenderness, it will always fall short on flavor. The sad fact is that most feedlot beef is often processed at 14 months of age, with the only goals being low cost and tenderness. Additionally, most grass fed beef producers will process at 18 months of age, creating beef without flavor or marbling. This is not the true nature of beef though. Much like wine, this quick growth will never create flavor. We want OUR cattle to have the necessary time to fully grow, finish, and develop INCREDIBLE flavor. We are unique, NEVER rushing the growth process. That's why our cattle grow super slowly on grass for 30-36 months before harvesting! We invest a serious amount of time in raising our beef to ensure it ALWAYS far surpasses what you imagine a steak can taste like. There are no shortcuts to perfection - we've developed our process over 30 years, ensuring consistent results every time. This process creates a far superior steak to any other grass fed (or grain fed) standard. Raising our beef to physiological maturity creates meat that has more muscle fibers and therefore more chew. This is truly mature beef, how it's supposed to be - it's what the world ate prior to the advent of grain & hormone fed feedlots who raise meat from shockingly young animals. If you're looking for floppy, jello like steaks that can be cut with a fork, this isn't it. But if you're looking for real beef flavor and texture from truly "finished" cattle, you've found it.
* For superior results, we like to Wet Age the steak in the original vacuum sealed packaging, unopened for 21 to 28 days in the refrigerator at 35 degrees, flipping the package every few days. If short on time, a 4 day Dry Brine works well before cooking using the Reverse Sear method listed below. Alternatively, you may combine the wet age and dry brine process for an absolutely superior steak.
Start with a steak that’s at least one inch thick. Remove thawed steak from packaging. Generously season with kosher salt on both sides. Lay it on a rack above a foil-lined tray, uncovered, and put into your fridge (35 degrees) for 3-4 days.
Allow the steak to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cooking using the following "reverse sear" method for a perfect medium rare steak:
Keep in mind that internal temperatures will continue to rise after removing any cut of meat from the heat source. We usually suggest removing from the heat when you are about 10 degrees under the target temperatures listed below. Our recommendation is to never cook beyond medium. Overcooking increased shrinkage and decreases tenderness.
Rare - 120°F to 125°F
Medium Rare - 130°F to 135°F
Medium - 140°F to 145°F
Medium Well - 150°F to 155°F
Well Done - 160°F
