100% local, grass-fed beef raised on a forage diet, creating an earthy depth of flavor and a naturally nutrient-rich food. New York Steak, also called strip steak or a Kansas City strip steak, is a cut of beef steaks from the short loin. It consists of a muscle that does little work, the longissimus, making the meat particularly tender, though not as tender as the nearby rib eye or tenderloin. Fat content of the strip is somewhere between the two cuts. Unlike the tenderloin, the short loin is a sizable muscle, allowing it to be cut into larger portions.
