The New York strip is cut from the beef short loin sub primal, which is part of the loin primal. The loin primal is the source of many premier steak cuts – including the most tender of them all – the filet mignon. When the tenderloin is removed from the short loin, the beef strip loin remains. This sub primal is only about 16-18 inches long and will yield 11-14 steaks, depending on thickness.
The New York strip is cut from the beef short loin, sometimes with the bone attached but most often as a boneless steak. If the butcher leaves the strip loin and tenderloin intact through the short loin, the short loin will transform into T-bone and porterhouse steaks.
