You don't sterilize straw, you pasteurize it. Pasteurization is done on a stove top w/ hot water, and it can be done in the oven also. Avoid sterilization because it's believed that it kills off the bugs that help mycelium fight contams, where as pasteurization keeps them around.

Please read this tek to understand the process better:
