It’s time to take your grilling game up a notch! With the right tools, an eye for detail, and patience, you can make restaurant-quality New York Strip Steak right in your own backyard. To ensure that you get the perfect char on the outside and tender juicy texture on the inside every time you light up your grill, follow this guide to mastering how to grill a delicious New York Strip Steak made just how you like it.
Step 1: Use High Quality Meat
To begin, start with a high-quality cut of meat – ideally, one that is grass-fed and well-marbled. The fat content of the meat will give the steak its signature flavor, so make sure you get something juicy and flavorful. You’ll also want to let the steak come to room temperature before grilling it – this allows for better and more even cooking.
Step 2: Heat Up Your Grill
When you’re ready to cook your steak, heat up your grill until it’s hot enough to sear the outside of your steak without burning it. Your goal should be around 400°F-450°F. Apply some oil or butter onto your steak before placing it on the grill – this helps prevent sticking and adds flavor.
Step 3: Use Tongs To Flip Your Steak
Once your steak is on the grill, use tongs rather than a fork or spatula to flip it over – piercing the meat with a fork or spatula can cause juices to run out and dry out your steak. When flipping, avoid moving it back and forth between two spots on the grill as this will prevent searing from occurring properly.
Step 4: Monitor Its Progress
As your steak cooks, monitor its progress carefully by pressing lightly on its surface with tongs or a clean finger: if there is resistance beneath your finger then your steak isn’t done yet; When there is just a bit of give then it’s ready! For medium-rare doneness (about 130°F in center), shoot for 8 minutes per side for a 1 1/2-inch thick strip steak; add 30 seconds per side for each additional quarter inch thickness thereafter. As soon as desired doneness is achieved, remove from heat immediately – overcooking will dry out your piece of meat quickly.
Step 5: Let Your Steak Rest
Finally, let your cooked steak rest on a cutting board for five minutes before slicing into it – this helps retain all those delicious juices inside while giving you time to prepare sides like potatoes and grilled vegetables too!
Congratulations! You’re now well-prepared to go out and grill the perfect New York Strip Steak. Keep all of these tips in mind the next time you’re looking to impress a steak lover, or cook up a delicious mid-week dinner. Remember, grilling steak isn’t rocket science, but it does require patience and a lot of love. With that being said, don’t forget to remove your steak from the grill at just the right moment creating a succulent balance between juicy tenderness and proper searing.
