We report preliminary results on transverse momentum (\(p_{T}\)) spectra (uncorrected) of \( K_s\), \({\varLambda }\) and \(\bar{\varLambda }\) in U+U collisions at \(\sqrt{s_{NN}}= 193\) GeV in the STAR experiment at RHIC. These strange particles are reconstructed from their weak decay topology using the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) detector of STAR. The spectra are extracted up to maximum \(p_{T}\) of 7 GeV/c.
