Sometimes there’s nothing better than a big, juicy piece of red meat on a Sunday evening. We don’t eat red meat very often, but when we do NY Strip Steak is my favorite. It has just the right amount of fat in it to make it exceptionally flavorful.
Usually I find that all a New York Strip Steak needs is a good seasoning with salt and pepper, but I wanted to try something a little different. This recipe for New York Strip Steaks with Horseradish Mustard Sauce is from one of my favorite Southern Cookbook authors- Sara Foster. You can find this recipe along with many other delicious recipes in her cookbook Fresh Every Day: More Great Recipes from Foster’s Market.
The steak is marinated in Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and rosemary. I love the woodsy flavor of rosemary especially during the cold winter months. For me, rosemary did take some getting used to because it has such a strong taste (and smell). If you’re not used to eating rosemary, start out by just using a little until you develop a taste for it. I’ve found that you can pretty much learn to like any food, so long as you are exposed to it the right way AND you want to like it.
The sauce is both tangy (from buttermilk) and a little hot (horseradish) and is the perfect complement to strip steak. Leftover sauce is wonderful on sandwiches.
Be sure not to overcook the strip steak. I think the easiest way to tell when steak is done is to press my finger on top right in the middle. At first it will feel really soft and fleshy. When it is medium rare it will still be soft, but not squishy feeling. If it feels firm, you have overcooked it. It takes some practice, but once you get a feel for it, it is super easy. Whatever you do, don’t cut into the steak while it is cooking or until it has been allowed to rest for at least 5 minutes.

I rarely eat red meat because my hubs doesn’t like it…but I do get a craving now and then. This strip steak is making me drool. I think it’s time i grill one up 🙂
I think I might actually cook steak more if my family didn’t like it. It’s so expensive to cook for everyone! 🙂
