1st Egg Steak Cook

So i'm having a steak cook off w/ my neighbor this weekend.  With that, I thought i'd get in some practice prior to the contest so I can bring some type of game to the table.

USDA Choice New York Strips

Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper about 5 minutes before cook

Seared on spider using small cast-iron grid.  Moved to small and roasted @ 400 till temp was reached.

Meat Temp
1 medium-well, 3 medium and 1 between medium-rare and medium

On the way home from Costco, I decided i would make garlic butter balls.  I put a butter ball on each steak during rest.






I'm my biggest critic and will usually find a fault with any cook.  These were spot on and I can't wait till my next steak cook. ;)
Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    That's a great looking New York,  Try a little celery salt I won more friendly cook offs with that.

    Proof is in the pictures, they look great.  Might try that salt and pepper about 30 minutes before hand.  Amazing how wet it makes the steaks.
