How Long to Cook Ny Strip Steak


You’ve got a hankering for a nice, juicy strip steak. Maybe it’s for dinner tonight, or maybe you’re planning on having company over, but either way the question is: How long should it take to cook my New York strip steak? And what temperature should I cook it at? We can answer these questions and more in this guide to cooking the perfect steak.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Place the steaks in a baking pan, and cook for 20 minutes on each side for medium rare, or 25 minutes for well done (or until you get what you want). Remove from the oven when done, let rest for 5 minutes before serving

Place your steaks in a baking pan.


Place your steaks in a baking pan.

You’ll want to use a pan that is the same size as your steak, and it should be oven-safe (meaning it can go from the stovetop to the oven). If you don’t have one with edges, consider lining it with aluminum foil to prevent any juices from spilling over onto your burners or range hood. A baking sheet or broiler pan will work fine too; just make sure there are no holes in its bottom so that nothing leaks through while cooking! Finally, if possible choose something with some sort of lid–this makes cleanup much easier later on!

Cook for about 20 minutes on each side for medium rare and 25 minutes for medium.

When you’re cooking a strip steak, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak. The USDA recommends that you cook your strip steak until it reaches an internal temperature 130 degrees F (54 C), which is medium rare. For medium, cook until 140 degrees F (60 C).

Once your steaks are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Remove from the oven.

  • Remove from the oven.
  • Use tongs to remove your steak from the oven and place on a cutting board or platter.
  • Check for doneness with a meat thermometer, then cut into it if you don’t have one handy (but be careful not to cut yourself!). If you want your steak more well done than medium rare, return it to heat for another 2-3 minutes per side before checking again with your meat thermometer or cutting into it again!

Strip steak should be cooked over high heat and served rare or medium rare.

Strip steak should be cooked over high heat and served rare or medium rare. A strip steak is a cut of beef from the short loin, and it’s often called New York strip or Kansas City strip. This tender, flavorful cut is great for grilling because it has enough fat to keep it juicy while cooking, but not so much that you have to worry about flare-ups making your meat taste burned.

Strip steaks are best cooked at high temperatures on an outdoor grill or stovetop skillet; if you’re using an indoor grill pan (which we recommend), preheat it over high heat until very hot before adding your steak(s). The best way to tell when your steaks are done? Use an instant-read thermometer! You want them between 130 degrees Fahrenheit (rare) and 140 degrees Fahrenheit (medium rare), though some people prefer their meat cooked even more thoroughly than that–upwards of 150 degrees Fahrenheit–so experiment until you find what works best for your tastes!


We hope this guide has helped you understand how to cook the perfect steak at home. If you follow these steps and use the right ingredients, you’ll be sure to have a delicious meal every time!
