10 Oz Strip Steak is a favorite to many as a perfect choice for those wanting a lean cut with just the right marbling to bring out its full flavor. The strip loin comes from the loin primal in the animal. This steak generally has a fair amount of marbling (tiny flecks of fat interlaced in the muscle) which gives the cut a good flavor profile and tenderness.
STEAK TEMPERATURE GUIDE
Here are the magic numbers you'll need to determine when your steak is cooked to the degree of doneness you most prefer. The internal temp is when the steak should be removed from the heat. The steak will continue to cook so the temperature will rise during the rest period.
|Rare||Red center, very cool||110°F|
|Medium Rare||Red, warm center||120°F|
|Medium Well||Pink center||140°F|
|Well||No pink||Not recommended|
