First of all, I have to say I was raised on a big commercial cattle ranch in Oklahoma.....have had steaks in Dallas, San Antone, KC, OKC, and everywhere in between. Needless to say, I know a little about steaks. I tend to shy away from NY Strips because they tend to be a little tough, I prefer Rib Eye. I followed this recipe exactly using my crockpot and these were the best NY Strips I have ever had. The only thing I did different was for the final sear, I used my charcoal grill. About a min, minute and a half per side, make sure you season them before the final sear. I've never had those kind of Mushrooms (Wegmans carries them) but can't imagine having a steak in the future without them. Overall, well worth the effort. Once you put the steaks in the water, they don't need much tending. To make it easy, experiment a few days in advance with your crockpot to maintain 131-135 degrees. I put mine on warm and tilted the lid a bit....maintained 132ish.....thermometer is very important. Don't get wound up over the time....it's not critical.....if it goes three hours, won't change anything.
