    2020 Birthday Cook — USDA Prime NY Strip

    Every year, I buy a hunk ‘o meat from Costco. I like to butcher my own meat and cook it! My wife prefers to go out to eat, so that’s what we do for her.

    Here’s my NY Strip hunk that I cut up. USDA Prime. Great marbling, just maybe a little skinny to what I prefer.

    It rained here on my birthday and the next day, so I had to pan sear them (normally I like to hover them over a charcoal chimney). On my birthday, the kids were loud and clamoring for attention, and I forgot to cold shock them. That left me a little over-done steak, but plenty delicious. I topped it with a ginormous shrimp (biggest I’ve ever seen) for my wife, and for me, I prefer scallops. Beef love, of course, which REALLY enhances flavor for the steak and the seafood.

    The second day, I remembered to cold shock it, and I put some Holy Cow rub on there, which was REALLY good. It sure helps to have full concentration when crunch time hits (but I sure love my kids clamoring for my attention)!!

    I never get tired looking at grilled (or pan fried) steak. Always gets my mouth watering. The steaks look great. Yum.

                  Great looking steaks! That’s my favorite cut, and I buy a couple of full strip loins each year just to cut into steaks. Once I smoked half of one like prime rib, for a holiday meal with the family, and it was really good that way too.

                    Did you sous vide these? I’m not understanding the need to “cold shock” unless you were SV’ing them. They look great, btw.

                        Looks great. Happy birthday. Can’t beat that price either. I also like that the whole loin lets you cut steaks that aren’t blade tenderized like Costco’s cut steaks.

                          I agree, I can’t believe they still do that...especially to Prime steaks.

                          The last time I was in Costco I talked to one of the butchers and he told me they don't blade tenderize prime cuts, BUT, since they can't guarantee someone didn't mess up and send some prime cuts through the tenderizer, they have to label them as tenderized. I told him that's a shame, because I'm not going to cook a prime steak to 165.
