Cattle Corner: New York Steak with  Tomato-Thyme Relish

The Stone Family Reunion scheduled for June has been cancelled due to coronavirus. Six of the 12 children had gathered for the funeral of their brother, Bill Stone. Pictured are Anne Willard McNabb,  June Moore, Emily Ruff, Fred Stone, Jim Stone and Bob Stone. The family hopes to see Fred and Emily when the reunion is rescheduled.


New York Steak with Tomato-Thyme Relish is from July 2019 Costco Connection.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.


  • 4 (8 oz) New York steaks, trimmed
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1 inch thick slices

  • 1 – 1/2 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme


1. Let steaks stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high heat, about 375’F.
