A note: As most of you probably sense, I work a regular job as I pursue working on this business, Food Run Fix. I labor at Kuhn, North America in Brodhead, Wisconsin. It's challenging and my co-workers are some of the best people in the world! With this Corona virus going around, I simply decided to close down the hatch, so to speak. I put in for some time off, vacation time I had banked. It's weird to feel like I should avoid people; that's counteractive to who I am as a human being. It is for the best; everybody I know are my friends. I care for them very much and sincerely respect their lives. Take care of yourself and just stay away until this sick virus passes.
New York Strip Steak
New York Strip Steak! Ever had one? A New York is simply a choice beef cut (in our opinion) with a name that's memorable.
The New York Strip Steak has a lot of names other than NY Strip. Here's a few: Ambassador Steak, Beef Loin, Strip Loin Steak, Bone In, Center-Cut; Club Steak; Country Club Steak; Delmonico Steak; Hotel Cut Steak; Kansas City Steak; Kansas City Strip Steak, Shell Steak; Strip Loin Steak; Top Loin Steak and Top Loin Steak (Bone In).
The steak's "strip" name originated from Delmonico's in New York City, a business that's still operational in name only, as the original from the 1800's no longer exists! That was only in the 18th century. Not long ago :) Hey, now that's branding!
Why this piece of meat has so many different names is beyond me. I mostly see it as a NY Strip Steak at any grocery store in Southern Wisconsin. Most importantly, I recognize the price of the cut and it's usually around $8.00 to $9.00 dollars per pound. Western ranchers must be going wild with joy.
The cut comes from below the backbone of a steer in the "Loin Primal" section. I would consider the New York Strip Steak a choice cut and some would argue that it's not choice because it's leaner then the obviously marbled choice T-Bone And Porterhouse steaks (the only cuts to buy unless you like eating leather-like grass fed only beef) which come from the same loin section.
The New York Strip Steak is extremely tender though and really grill worthy in any situation. Tasteful, impressive and full of protein; man, this steak really does it for you and yours, party or just a backyard jaunt! Food Run Fix can't say enough about this meat. Represented are boneless and bone in along with some great sides!
