The New York Strip
What is a New York Strip?
The New York strip steak is a tender, flavorful cut of beef that comes from the short loin, which is located on the back of the animal. It comes from a muscle that does little work, making the meat tender, which is why it's one of the most popular steaks in America. It's great grilled, pan-fried or broiled, and it's delicious when served with just a little salt and pepper. The short loin is one of the most marbled and flavorful areas of beef. On average, a 3-once portion of New York Strip has about 220 calories, 24 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fat. The New York Strip should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F.
