What is a strip loin?
The strip loin is a cut from the short loin near the tenderloin of the cow. It is muscle that does very little work, so is particularly tender.
This cut is actually usually quite marbled too. It is not quite as tender as the tenderloin but still very tender.
The strip is an economical cut of meat, usually costing less than half of the tenderloin. You can purchase the loin bone-in or boneless.
The roasts can be cut into individual steaks prior to cooking if desired. We prefer cooking the whole roast or at in least portions.

How to make it
How to slice a strip loin roast
The roast should be sliced into approximately 1-2″ wide steaks. When serving, slice the steaks across the grain, this will produce the most tender bites.
Look at the way the lines of the meat are running and slice them perpendicular to the lines, not in the same direction as the lines.
Before slicing into steaks, let the roast rest for at least 30 minutes.
Use a sharp, straight edged chef’s knife to cut into steaks. Do not use a serrated knife.
