New York Strip
with red wine sauce & parmesan fries
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
We serve our NY Strip Steak Recipe with a
flavorful, simple Red Wine Sauce and a delicious side of thick-cut Parmesan French Fries. New
York Strip is a great cut of steak for this dish - it's not overly lean so it stays juicy
during cooking, and has great full flavor and meaty texture. The red wine sauce gets a boost
from sliced shallots, and slow reduction concentrates flavors.
This NY Strip Steak Recipe loves full-bodied red wines. If you're going for a 'splurge'
Cabernet Sauvignon is your bet, but this can be a tough wine if you're looking for a steal -
less expensive versions can be rough and bitter. You'll find better choices in Syrahs and Syrah
blends, such as a Côtes du Rhone, at this end of the market.

NY Strip Steak
Ingredients2 lbs New York strip steak
4 russett or Idaho potatoes
5-6 cups of vegetable oil
3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
1 cup red wine
1/2 cup beef stock
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1 large shallot
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsps parsley
NY Strip Steak Cooking Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season steak on both sides with salt and fresh pepper. Peel
potatoes and cut into long, thin strips. Slice shallot into rings. Chop
2.) Melt butter in a sauce pan, add shallots, and stir until they soften.
3.) Add wine to deglaze the pan, using a wooden spoon to dislodge any browned bits and dissolve
into sauce. Add beef stock and tomato paste. Simmer on low heat, stirring
4.) Heat vegetable oil over high heat in medium-sized pot. Fill until about 2" of oil are in
pot - the amount needed will depend on the dimensions of your pot.
5.) Check that oil is hot enough by carefully inserting one test into oil - if it bubbles,
it's ready. If it doesn't, increase temperature slightly, wait and retest. When ready, slowly
add potatoes since oil will increase in volume. Stir occasionally for 20 minutes or until edges
are nicely brown.
6.) In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Place steaks in skillet and sear
1 minute on each side.
7.) After searing, move skillet to oven to finish*. Steaks will take 12 minutes for medium
rare. If preferred more or less done, adjust cooking time.
8.) Strain fries from oil and dry on paper towels. Lightly salt, then toss with parsley and
9.) Let steaks rest, then slice, plate with sauce and fries, and serve!
