Ready to celebrate this beautiful weather?

Don’t settle for cold hot dogs over white bread like we did in college.

BBQ season is here, and living Wild means you and your family deserve a hearty feast. And you can get this one ready in just a few minutes.

When other party guests show up with Oscar Meyer weiners and potato salad that’s been sitting out a little too long, you’ll be the one pulling juicy steaks off the grill!

That makes you a bona fide backyard hero in my book.

Enjoy your feast, and happy Independence Day!

15-Minute New York Strip Steak
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
These juicy New York Strip steaks will make you the belle of the ball at any backyard party. Remember to cook your meats low-and-slow (especially with grassfed and pastured meats). Enjoy!
Serves: 4 - 6
  • 4 - 6 8-ounce grass-fed New York Strip Steaks
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  1. Rub steaks on all sides with olive oil, salt, and coarsely ground black pepper.
  2. Heat grill to medium heat. Lay steaks directly on the grill.
  3. Cook 3 - 5 minutes until bottom is nicely browned (but not charred). Flip and cook another 3 - 4 minutes to desired temperature. Keep in mind that grass-fed meats are always best medium-rare to rare (remove from grill when the internal temperature is between 130°F and 140°F).
  4. Remove to a platter and allow to rest about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
