New York Steak Pepperonata


I felt like eating steak one day so I head over to the butcher shop and tried to decide on which cut to get. Being that I should be on a budget (although I haven’t acted like it) I perused the cold case for something affordable. I saw $7.99 beef shoulder steaks. Whoa, so cheap! But then I saw the Prime USDA New York Steak and it was over. I got two for just under $40. Yup, pricey, but sooo worth it.


I seasoned the steak with freshly cracked black pepper and kosher salt and seared it up in a combination of olive and butter. When one side got nicely crusted I flipped the steak and continued cooking. The steaks could have been cooked about two minutes less but it was still at a delicious stage although a little past my preferred medium rare state. Well there’s always next time when I’m buying $20 steaks to do it right. But these were so delicious, well seasoned with salt and so crusty. Boy and I wondered why we don’t do this more often. I made a very simple peperonata with lipstick peppers and onions sauteed in olive oil with garlic, marjoram, and red wine vinegar. I forgot the capers but that’s ok – they weren’t missed at all. Thinking about the steak at 9:30 in the morning is making me hungry.

  1. Everytime I go to the store these days, I wander over to the meat section and stare longingly at the steaks before heading over to a cheaper meal option. So, thanks for allowing me to live vicariously through you!

  2. hi hannah,
    what kind of steak did you have?

    hi peter,

    hi justin,

    hi imani,
    maybe we can do a b.y.o.steak get together. eat drink, drink booze.

    hi asianmommy,
    steak is indeed simple but so full of flavor.

    hi marie,
    i have very little will power. 🙂 next time i think i will try the $8/lb steak and see how it goes. but it’s good to splurge once in a while.

  3. WoW that piece of prime is so beautifully marbled. Explosion of juiciness in every bit. I just bought some fillet mignon from costco and after reading this I should of splurge for the prime. 😦
