Recipe

Stove Top Bone In NY Strip Steak

Ingredients:

1-1/4” thick NY Strip Steak with Bone inSTEAK
Kosher Salt
Pepper (optional)
Cast Iron Skillet

Preparation:

  • Remove bone-in steak from the refrigerator about 1/2 hour before cooking to allow it to reach room temperature. Bone slows down the cooking process.
  • Leave fat on the steak during cooking as this keeps the meat from drying out.
  • Sprinkle top generously with kosher salt. Since much of the salt will stay in the pan, don’t be shy! Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper if you like.
  • Heat skillet on high heat for 8 to 10 minutes—it needs to be really hot before the steak goes in! Test its readiness by flicking water on its surface, it should vaporize on contact. Be sure to turn on the exhaust fan.
  • Place steak in skillet salted side down and while cooking salt (and pepper) what is now the top.
  • Touch the meat frequently to determine doneness—when medium rare, it will have a little firmness. You will develop a sense of this over time. If you want it more well done leave it until it develops more firmness. Err on the side of less done, you can always cook it more.
  • Turn the steak and cook a while longer, but just until the overall steak becomes slightly firm.
  • Take it off the heat and allow it to rest for 5 to 7 minutes before cutting. This will allow the meat to relax and retain its juices.

Music

Ragtime Relics featuring Karl Dentino, John Suda and Ray Fyhr will perform under the music tent Sunday. Ragtime Relics features an assortment of Americana music ranging from Tin Pan Alley to ragtime blues and early country. Check out their rendition of “Pistol Packin’ Mama.”
