This juicy, sweet, and soft steak is the very definition of umami taste - subtle yet savory in the finest tradition of highest quality food. The flavor profile and texture of this cut is perfect for those wanting to really taste the difference of Morgan Ranch Beef, its texture, moisture, richness, and flavor. Each bite is an escape into thick, flavorful beef – a mouthful of pure perfection! The Morgan Ranch Strip Loin Medallion measures in at two inches thick (5cm), making this cut an ideal candidate for the grill’s infusion of flavor and locked-in juiciness. The Strip Loin comes from the back short loin and is also known as Manhattan Steak or Rocky Mountain Medallion.
All this steak needs is quality salt and pepper. For best results let the steak breathe and have it reach room temperature just shortly before cooking. The skillet and the charcoal or gas grill yield excellent results.

Instructions & Cooking Tips
Completely defrost steak in the fridge. For best results: shortly before cooking open the pack and place on the countertop until steak has reached room temperature and the fat parts have become very soft to the touch.
For the Morgan Ranch strip steak, we recommend the cast-iron skillet, charcoal grill or a gas grill. All this steak needs is good quality salt and pepper. For the additional taste, you can add a whole garlic knob sliced in half and some fresh thyme.
High-quality butter (no added salt and preservatives) is recommended for cooking the steak as it adds an amazing overall flavor. The reverse sear method and medium-rare doneness yields best results for Morgan Ranch steaks: slow cook and turn often. Let it sizzle.
Once the core temperature has reached 52 degrees Celsius or 125 degrees Fahrenheit sear on high heat for a couple of seconds until the outer layer is crispy and dark brown and the internal temperature has reached 130 degrees Fahrenheit or 55 degrees Celsius. Remember, the steak will continue to cook as it rests.
Serve with steamed vegetables and a simple salad. You can also slice the steak and share with many guests at a gathering such as a home party or BBQ. Eat while still warm for soft and buttery flavor and experience.
