Meet Your Meat Soulmate: The New York Strip

The delectable New York Strip comes from the strip loin, located in the upper area of the cow’s hindquarter, and is perfect for grilling or pan broiling. It is the continuation of the ribeye moving into the hindquarter between the 12th and 13th rib.

With above average marbling (though not as much as the ribeye) and beefy flavor, the New York Strip is one of the most popular cuts of meat. At Foothills, our strip loins are generally split lengthwise down the middle and tied into roasts, one of the more common and savory methods of preparation. Our staff will happily cut these roasts into steaks of desired thickness. A steak cut from a split strip loin is a Strip Filet, or a Petite New York Strip, so technically, it's not a New York Strip unless it’s presented whole.

This cut is perfect for the grill or stove, in any season, and is a delightful hearty meal that deserves time and attention to savor it.
