How to make a NY strip steak tender
 
I would like to make New York Strip Stakes tender when doing them.

It seems as if my New York Strip are always tough and my wife has a hard time eating them.

There must be away to make them tender. We like them medium to medium done.

You can't really make it more tender. It would be easier if you bought a more tender cut such as rib eye or tenderloin.

A good NY Strip steak properly cooked to medium shouldn't be tough.

You might consider buying better quality meat or, like Andy suggests, a different cut like a tenderloin.

What about pounding it with a tenderizing hammer?

Simple. Don't overcook it.

Or like Andy said, use a cut with more fat marbling, such as Ribeye. :chef:

No!

Don't pound a nice cut like that. A tenderizing hammer is meant for tough cuts like round steak.

Like I said above, a properly cooked NY strip shouldn't be tough. It does not need mechanical tenderizing.

Better quality meat
Proper cooking (tell us how you cook it)
Buy a different type of steak

Welcome to Discuss Cooking nhoj.I agree that in the future it would be best to buy something like a tenderloin filet. However, I read on another thread that your wife has ALS and it makes it difficult to chew.

I'm guessing that you already have these NY steaks, so yes I would pound them with a tenderizing hammer to make them more tender. As long as you both are not allergic to MSG, you can consider using some Adolf's meat tenderizer while doing that and then be sure to get them cooked immediately without letting them set.

I don't think Adolf's has MSG in it ..... the kind in the plastic shaker at least.

Its mostly salt. It tenderizes with enzymes. Better, IMO, than pounding it.

He could also marinate the steak with some fresh pineapple. Teriyaki maybe.

I have read in the posting on Chuck Roast about Kiwi would that work better?

All of you are so helpful here, not like some forum where you have some people that enjoys making fun of people and their questions.

Keep up the good work and you will have more people enjoying and asking questions, Thank-You

You're so right Jenny....NO MSG in Adolf's and good to know.

I was about to delete my idea about it as I just read MSG is a big NO NO for people with ALS.
