How Long Does It Take for a New York Strip Steak to Cook?

The length of time to cook a New York strip depends on how the steak is cooked, and how well done the steak needs to be. The thickness of the steak also causes cooking time to vary. It's best to broil grill or pan fry a New York strip steak.

The best way to tell how long a steak needs to be cooked is to use a meat thermometer to measure its internal temperature. Medium rare steak needs to reach 145 F. Medium steak needs to reach 160 F. Well done steak should be cooked to 170 F. The key to a great steak is keeping the juices inside. Don't use the meat thermometer multiple times. Sear the steak at a high temperature in a pan on top of the stove, and then put it in the oven at 425 F for five minutes before checking for the degree of doneness.
