HI. I thought I did a good thing, but now I need some opinions.
I bought a pack of (4) boneless strip steaks at Costco for $6.99/pound.
They were thawed, not frozen.
They were about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 " thick.
I put them on the gas grill right out of the fridge, same day I bought them.
Cooked to an internal temp of 145.
Although they were good, they seemed quite dry.
The middle was pink, the way we like it, and no one complained, but in my personal opinion, I thought they would be juicier than that.
Questions; Is there a 'cheaper' type of steak and that is why they are only $6.99? My local butcher would have charged me $14.99 up to $18.99 for boneless strips.
My son said that he thinks part of the reason is because I threw them on the grill right out of the fridge instead of letting them rest to room temperature. He thinks the outside portions dried out while the inside middle got to temp.
Just wondering. Like I said, they were plenty good enough, just not over the top - like I expected a nice, thick, juicy steak to be.
