Beef Loin Roast is where NY Strip Steaks come from. These roasts are from smaller animals, and are only about 1.5-2 inches thick at the thickest. If you have a grill master in your household it is possible to cook this cut on the grill and then slice at the table. It's also wonderful prepared in an oven as a typical roast. Or if you want to cut your own steaks exactly the thickness you want, this cut will work well for that.
