Make NY Strips Great Again - Part Deaux
« on: February 12, 2017, 10:05:29 AM »
I was at my local HEB Grocery yesterday looking at Briskets (which have now gone up to $2.25ish) when some incredibly marbled NY Strips caught my eye.  At first, I thought.. wow, did they mislabel some Ribeyes as NY Strips?  I decided that they were too beautiful not to take them home... forgetting about the briskets for another day. 

I had recently picked up a couple of new steak seasonings from a place called Woody's Smokehouse up in Centerville, TX.  My wife couldn't decide which she like better so I rubbed one with the Robust Ribeye Rub and the other two with the Mesquite Steak Rub and threw some pads of butter on them.

Last time, I tried to sous vide NY Strips, I think I cooked at 129 for 2.5 hours.  I wasn't impressed.  So, now after some further reading, I plan to cook these at 131 for 6 hours before reverse searing.  I don't plan to start the bath until noon today. 

I'm determined to make NY Strips Great Again!  So, let me know if you have any opinions!

A “Briskitarian” is one of two types of people. Either one who smokes his or her “Hunk of Goodness” until it probes like Butter or one who enjoys his or her “Goodness” smoked until it probes like Butter.

6 hours at 131, much betta!  I may even try 7 -8 with NY Strips next time. These turned out fantastic. Very tender and great flavor. Both rubs were great. Still divided on which Rub was better.

Bones,
These were just the choice cuts but turned out incredible. I think I only paid $22 for all three steaks. Great deal.

I highly recommend the HEB "Prime 1" aged prime ribeyes. They are off the hook cooked at 129F for 2.5 hours then seared on each side for 35 seconds. They are a little bit more expensive though!

Cannot Sous Vide yet but just looking at those chunks of meat made me thing they needed some pecan wood and 225* of electric heat.
Some day I will have a SV cooker...sigh.

Anova has some different options now.  I still recommend the stainless version, but they're like the smoker...it only hurts once!  Join the club; it's a great tool to have in the bag!

I have found them for about $100.00 but it's just more than I want to spend on a unit that will only do one thing.  If I can just get the wife to try something that had been cooked that way, I might get the OK.

Veggies too, search for "pennies from heaven" carrot recipe...delicious!

Sausage, peppers & onions are great too
