My son loves New York steak. It took a lot of trial cooking of the steak to figure out how to cook it just right. I have tried steaks from all stores. I even went to a butcher shop and bought some. I have found the best steak is from a store called Smart and Final. I have bought them all, from Sams club, Costco, Whole foods, all the grocery stores even Walmart. (Those are the worst.) Every time I cook a New York steak from Smart & Final, it comes out delicious. We even ate at a steak restaurant this week and my son said the steak I cook are better than the $20 steak at a restaurant. So I decided to type this up in case you want to try it. I bought a convection cook top a few weeks ago to cook the steaks on because it makes my stove a mess. I love this convection cooker. I got it from Amazon and they have all kinds of them. I like to use a cast iron skillet. I have a black one and one that is cast iron with a red finish on the outside. I used that on for these pictures but I mostly use the all black one. First I put a spoon of lard in the pan and melt it. It gives the steak a good flavor. I set the convection cooker on 300 to 350 degrees. On a gas stove put it at medium. Heat up your pan. I trim all the fat off the meat. My son does not like to cut it off after it is cooked. I went to Texas roadhouse steak restaurant and bought their steak seasoning spice. They will sell it to you if you ask. It is $4. I shake it all over the steak on both sides and rub it in. I even coat the sides of the steak too. Then I put in a little cast iron skillet in the oven to get it hot. I put the oven at 350 degrees F. You can get those pan all over and it comes with a wood holder for the bottom and a cover for the handle. They keep your steak hot while you eat it. I good the steak for 4 to 5 minutes for first side. Then turn it over and set the timer for 4 more minutes and check the temperature of it. I try to get it 135, that is a medium but if you like it rare go for 120 to 125. You have to watch it, if the steak is thinner, it takes less time. If it is thick, it takes a little more time. I then take it out of the pan and put it on the heated skillet serving pan. I don’t let them rest like they tell you to do on cooking shows. I like them nice and hot to eat. I gave my son 2 steaks because they were only $4 each on sale and were not real big. I serve them with a baked potato. I buy them huge at Smart & Final too. They come in a 50 pound bag for $10, but they are the biggest potatoes I have ever seen for sale. I took a picture of the potato.
\HMy son likes a huge baked potato. I bake it for 3 hours at 350 degrees also. potato.
