  • N.Y. Strip Steaks

    I decided to try out my new "Tuscan Grill" with some NY strips. They cooked to medium-well in about five minutes at near pizza temp. Still, they were very juicy and much more flavorful than on a gas grill.

    The steaks sure look good. I imagine 2 - 3 minutes (at 650 - 750 F) would be medium rare. How far is the grill off of the pizza oven floor and what type of wood were you using?

      To be honest, I'm not completely sure about the wood. I have a stack of mixed hardwoods, mostly oak, maple and locust. The grill is cast iron with 4" legs. I set it on the hearth and raked about a 1' layer of fresh embers underneath.
      i was surprised how fast they cooked. Next time, I'll turn them sooner for sure. I prefer something closer to medium-med.rare.

        We find the best way to obtain a rare steak is to have the steak cut thicker. If you cook a thin steak for less time you do not get the great crust that the wood fired oven can produce. See our thread Steaks on the Tuscan grill from last fall. Carl

          You can cook steaks directly on the coals. You don't need a grill.

            I have not tried cooking direcly on the coals. We also cook whole fish but rather than on the grill we cook on a sheet pan on top of coarsely chopped fennel and carrots. The fish cook beautifully and come out as though the were grilled in about 8 min or so. I'll post a picture the next time we do fish. Carl
