Kansas City Strip Cooking Tips

Kansas City Strip Cooking Tips

When cooking steak, the cut matters.

Different cuts call for different cooking methods.

The Kansas City Strip Steak is best served grilled according to professional chefs.

Why?

These steaks were MADE for the grill. Searing the outside and then cooking with indirect heat brings out the natural flavor of the KC Strip. You don’t want to overcook these.

The interior of the strip needs extra love. A steak that’s tough on the inside is no good – especially a Kansas City Strip.

And when grilling steak, listen to the experts. They know what they’re talking about.

You can get more chef advice on cooking your KC Strip Steaks right here. Everything from grilling times to videos.

Then, pair your steaks with a nice wine and you’ve got yourself a fantastic Kansas City Strip meal made to perfection!

What Is a Kansas City Strip?

Kansas City Strip

You may have heard the Kansas City Strip Steak referred to as a New York Strip.

They are the same.

Folklore goes that a fancy chef in NYC felt the need to rename the KC Strip the NY Strip. But, hey, who was the original?

It’s all the same as far as types of steak goes.

A Kansas City Strip Steak comes from the short loin. It’s thick and juicy and can be ordered bone-in or boneless.

Grilling is the best cooking method, but when you’re cooking at home YOU choose how you want to prepare it. Broil it, grill it, pan fry – however you like!

But don’t cook your steaks too long. It’ll remove that delicious juicy flavor that comes from the pink center.

Thinking of cooking some KC Strips this weekend? Fire up the grill and enjoy!

Just remember where they’re from.
