Kobe (wagyu) beef. New York Strips (Pics)

Hello All! I'm a long time lurker and this is my first post. I was at my local butcher and noticed that they had Kobe New York Strips. I had the butcher cut two at 1.5 inches thick. After searching this forum for cooking methods I decided to get the egg as hot as possible, sear the steaks, and then close the egg up. I estimate my searing temp to be north of 800 because every time I closed the lids the temperature gauge shot up past 800. :)

I seasoned the steaks with EVOO, salt, and pepper and I ended up searing the steaks for 90 seconds per side and rotating 90 degrees after 45 seconds. This was my first high temp cook. I have a large Big Green Egg that I got for my birthday in August. I also used the cast iron grate on top of the firebox ring.

While the egg was heating up I cooked two foil packages. One with asapargus, EVOO, salt pepper, and cheese. The other package had pumpkin with butter and brown sugar. I estimate these foil packages cooked for about 12 - 15 minutes. I also made twice baked potato and sauteed mushrooms.

Pictures as promised:

    Well, by pumpkin I actually mean butternut squash. For some reason I call every orange colored squash "pumpkin". I peel and seed the pumpkin, cut into chunks, then just sprinkle with brown sugar, a dash or two of cinnamon, and add some butter chunks. Wrap all in foil and cook for 12 - 15 minutes or until tender. It taste great but I'm bias ;)

    Looks great.  Noticed your location.  I assume that grocery prices can get pretty steep the farther north you go + Kobe on top of that = glad you didn't mess it up.

    Seriously - they look delicious.

  • Very nice. Now I have to ask the hard question: just what was the price/lb for those magnificent slabs?

    Overall groceries aren't too bad up here. Some things we pay more for like fresh produce but really everything else seems to be about the same in price as the lower 48.

    Well, they were going for about $38.00 a pound so needless to say this cook won't happen too often. However, it was worth every penny.

    Thanks to everyone for the kinds words and I'll be sure to post up more of my cooks with pictures of course! I've done a great Boston butt using the turbo cook method, two cooks of St. Louis style ribs but only one of the cooks was good, and two chickens with the same 50% result. I still have a lot to learn and thanks to this site I can learn it all! :)

    Amazing!  That 3rd pic is a magazine cover.  What did you use to fancy up the photo? 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • My local butcher, who I really like, will only do prime or Wagyu on special order with a rather hefty minimum purchase. Right now I'll just live vicariously through your pictures.
