Wine pairing: 2005 Hall Carbernet Sauvignon

Prep time: 20 minutes; Cooking time: 30 minutes, Serves: 4

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 CĂ´tes du Rhone, at this end of the market.

NY Strip Steak Ingredients

2 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

1.) 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 parmesan.

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 occasionally.

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 parmesan.

9.) Let steaks rest, then slice, plate with sauce and fries, and serve!
