You can still eat that New York Strip Steak. No need to go out to a restaurant. Make it at home. Really. You got this.
Making a New York Strip Steak is easy. I made my first steak under the broiler in my kitchen when I was 17. I had to ask my mom how to do it. We didn’t eat steak at our house very often. She told me how to broil it. It turned out great. My boyfriend was happy, I was proud, and I’ve been hooked on cooking steak at home ever since.
It’s super easy and SO much cheaper to buy a steak in the grocery store and cook it yourself. And with the pandemic, you are gonna want to stay home. But you don’t have to give up steak!
I don’t eat beef very often, but when I do, there are generally only four varieties I eat: very lean Hamburger, Prime Rib Roast, Flank Steak or New York Strip Steak. (If I eat steak in a restaurant, I prefer the Porterhouse Steak because it’s generally super juicy and it’s big, so I can take some home.)
How to Cook A New York Strip Steak
You can broil a steak in your oven on the broiler pan with your broiler on high 8 inches (or so) from the coils for about 5 minutes a side. Another choice is to grill it on a George Foreman Indoor Grill for a total of about 5-6 minutes. Or cook it on your outdoor grill. We have a Char-Broil Gas Grill (Don loves it) so it gets hot quickly and cooks evenly. That’s the way we usually cook it.
The indoor grill takes about half the time to cook as it does outdoors because you cook both sides at the same time. Each grill cooks a little differently, so your cooking time may be a little longer or shorter than ours. Until you know how quickly your grill cooks, you can check the doneness by cutting into the steak periodically (but not too often as you don’t want all the juices to flow out).
I prefer my steak with a heafty amount of pepper and just a bit of salt. And I like it cooked to “medium rare” (warm center, just a bit of blood).
What You Need
You will need one of the following: the broiler (and broiler pan) in your oven, an indoor grill, or an outdoor grill. You’ll need tongs to turn the steak over and serve it. But what you really want is some wonderful stemware so you can have a lovely glass of wine with your meal!

How to Make a New York Strip Steak
Grill your juicy NY Strip Steak indoors or outdoors.
- 1 6-8 ounces New York Strip Steak
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat the grill to very hot (about 5 minutes).
Place the steak on the grill grate and shut the lid.
- Cook for 4-7 minutes a side. Likely, 4 minutes a side will be rare and 7 will be well done. I like mine cooked about 5 minutes a side for a medium-rare steak.
Let rest a minute or two before serving. Serve hot.
