Ingredients

Blackened New York Strip Steak

  • 16 Ounces New York Strip Steak (neatly trimmed)
  • 1 Ounce Blackening Spice
  • 1 Tablespoon Achiote Paste
  • 2 Tablespoons Blended Oil
  • Pinch of Salt & Pepper

Directions

Blackened New York Strip Steak

Place cast iron pan on stove for 20 minutes before starting recipe.  Using the blended oil mix achiote paste together and cover steak with paste on both sides.  Sear steak each side for 8 minutes or until 110 degree temperature is achieved and let steak rest for 3 minutes.

Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
