How to Cook New York Strip Steak

Trim the fat from steaks then allow to sit out at room temperature for an hour or so. You don’t have to get the steak all the way to room temperature, but definitely take an hour to at least knock the chill off.

Season both sides with salt and pepper to taste.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Melt 3-4 Tablespoons of butter in a screaming hot iron skillet. I open a window and turn on the stove vent before the butter goes in the skillet.If you've tried New York strip recipes in the past, but didn't use the iron skillet and oven method...what are you waiting for?

Cook them until there’s a nice brown, crusty sear on the one side (shouldn’t take more than a minute or two)

Flip the steaks, kill the heat on your stove eye,  then place the skillet steaks and all in the 400 degree heated oven.

Cook according to how you like your steaks done. I’m a medium-rare kind of girl so I didn’t leave these 1.5 inch steak in for longer than 5 minutes.
