A New York strip steak is a cut of meat from the cow's short loin. A strip steak is also known as a strip loin steak or a Kansas City strip steak. This cut is ideal for grilling, pan-searing, or broiling because of its tender and tasty meat with a considerable degree of marbling.
The term "New York strip" refers to the fact that it was first served in late-nineteenth-century New York City steakhouses. The cut is normally 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick with a distinctive form that is broader on one end and tapers towards the other. It is frequently served with traditional steakhouse sides such as mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, or grilled veggies.
