Perfect NY Strip with Certified Steak and Seafood Company

Months ago I didn't really eat beef or pork because of the fat content and calories. Now that I am low carb I am up for trying different cuts of meat, especially beef. I never really knew what kinds of beef to buy because I used to just get what I knew growing up. It was always those thin minute steaks that my mom would make with vinegar, onions and pepper (bistec encebollado).

I got an amazing opportunity to sample three items of my choice from Certified Steak and Seafood Company so I went with cuts I have never cooked before. I got a NY Strip, Beef Short Ribs and T-
Bone Steak. It was a bit hard picking just the right combo of meats because they had so many different ones to chose from. Not to mention some amazing seafood too!

When my order came a few days later I was curious to see how it was packaged and shipped. First I unwrapped the plastic and then I opened the top of the cooler. Inside was a bag of dry ice that was carefully sealed, had instructions right on top and a handle to easily take out. I have seen my share of cooking shows that say how you can get burned from dry ice so I could appreciate the extent of safety they went through. Then below the dry ice was my three beautiful cuts of beef.

I decided to tackle the New York Strip first and this is how I cooked it:

Perfect NY Strip
  • New York Strip
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tblsp butter
  1. Fully defrost your NY strip safely in the refrigerator. Thirty minutes before you are ready to cook your strip remove from the refrigerator and set aside. 
  2. Turn on your oven to 400 degrees. Mix the seasonings and set aside until you are ready to cook. 
  3. Remove the strip from the plastic packaging and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with mixed seasoning on both sides. 
  4. Get a small frying pan really hot and then add some olive oil. Add your strip and cook on medium high heat for about 4 minutes. Remove from pan and place on baking pan cooked side up. 
  5. Place butter on top and place in the oven for about 6 minutes for medium. Cook for less or more depending on how you like your meat cooked. 
  6. Enjoy with a nice side salad.
