New York Strip steaks are one of our most popular steaks – they’re certified lean, packed full of flavor, and easy to grill. However, sometimes you want to mix it up, and this Smoked Strip Steak with Blue Cheese Wine Sauce recipe is an ingenious way to prepare a strip steak in a totally different way. We tip our hats to the Beef Council who came up with this recipe. We didn’t think of smoking a “grilling steak”, but this method is effectively a reverse sear, slowly and evenly bringing the steaks up to the perfect temperature, and then finishing with a quick sear. The end result is a smoky, perfectly cooked steak with a delicious crust. Enjoy!
