for an average new york strip how long to grill for rare, medium rare, and then how long to sit tented or best way to finish them?
I'm a purist and like my steak seasoned simply with salt and pepper. Grill on high heat for 3 minutes per side for a typical 1" thick steak, then drop the heat to low on the second side and cook gently for another 2-3 minutes. Since every steak varies, you should invest in an instant read thermometer to check internal temperature for best results. For a rare steak, I like to cook to an internal temp of 110 degrees F, then transfer to a plate and rest the steak until you see juices start to run from the edges of the steak, maybe 3 minutes or so so the juices can redistribute themselves.
Thank you very much! The steaks turned out great. I have only grilled filets prior and was not sure if there was any difference in the process.
