Checkers Butchery introduces the New York strip steak

The butchery that keeps on getting better.

18 Jul 2014

When it comes to restaurant-quality cuts you can cook at home, not all steaks are created equal and most meat lovers will tell you that the only place to buy superior cuts is from a top butcher.

But there’s one supermarket changing all our minds.

With its impeccable variety and value, the Checkers Butchery has mastered the art of the chopping block. And now, having recently added another world-famous cut to their Steakhouse Classic range, they’ve done it again.

Introducing the New York Strip Steak

A signature cut of the world’s finest steakhouses, the New York Strip is ours to enjoy from Checkers as the 11th addition to their famous Steakhouse Classic range. Known in other parts of the world as a club steak, the Strip is a popular cut from the short loin. And because it consists of muscle that does little work, it’s distinctively tender too. Selected by master butchers and aged to perfection, the dense texture and delicate marbling of the New York Strip means it’s just as delicious seared in a hot pan as it is blackened on a braai – and here’s a New York Strip Steak with Chilli & Honey-Butter Mielies recipe to prove it.  

But that’s not all. In addition to 11 perfectly matured cuts in their famous Steakhouse Classic range, which includes Brazil’s favourite Picanha rump, Checkers’ Butchery offers an even bigger variety. Try their 100% Certified Natural Lamb with this exclusive Braised Lamb recipe, and go gourmet with their Farmstead Pork Cuts and this Glazed Pork Belly recipe.
