Savory strip steaks can make the most of any dining event. In fact, some might consider cooking and eating steaks for dinner an event in itself. The strip steak is also known as the beef loin top steak, the Kansas City Strip or the New York Strip. Whether you’re grilling or broiling, one of the toughest decisions is choosing between the boneless and bone-in cuts. While each has its merits, the final decision often comes down to the personality traits and personal preferences of the chef.
The main difference between the bone-in and boneless strip is, of course, the bone itself. Some might argue that the bone gives it more texture and flavor. The counter argument is that the boneless version has plenty of flavor and texture of its own, and it cooks faster.
Most people consider the bone-in strip steak the ultimate cookout steak. It can be marinated before grilling for enhanced flavor or stand on its own with a little oil, salt and pepper over classic charcoal and aromatic wood chunks. A boneless steak will cook more evenly, but you can cook the bone-in variety to perfection with some patience.
One of the biggest factors in the boneless versus bone-in debate is cooking time. Broiling a boneless steak takes less time. This can work to your advantage if you are especially hungry or on a tight schedule. On the other hand, waiting an extra few minutes for the more succulent bone-in steak may be worth it for the added flavorful juiciness. Use that extra time to put the finishing touches on the table. Light the candles, pour another glass of wine or pull together a green salad.
