New York strip steak is so effortless to prepare. It has such great taste that you only need a few ingredients to make it “melt in your mouth” delicious!
There is much controversy about eating red meat, although as with everything else, in moderation, actually it is good for you. A 3 ounce (85 grams ) serving of steak contains about 24 grams of protein. That is great for your muscles and bones and also helps to curb your appetite. Eating more protein than carbohydrates also keeps you fuller longer, so no cravings., and that’s a good thing for your waistline.
To prepare this meal, make sure you allow the meat to rest in the oil with rosemary for about 1 hour to infuse all over with the rosemary into the meat. Season the meat with a generous portion of salt and pepper and make sure to turn the steak over halfway into the marinade time. You can also make this with some grilled onions and serve with a side salad. Enjoy!
New York Strip Steak with Rosemary Garlic Butter
1 pound New York Strip Steak, 1-inch thick
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, smashed
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
For the Steak:
In a baking dish, place the 3 sprigs of rosemary and drizzle with some olive oil. Place the steak on top of the rosemary and generously season with the salt and pepper. Drizzle with more olive oil. After 30 minutes, turn the steak over and continue to marinade for another 30 minutes. Preheat a grill or grill pan to high heat. Remove the steak from the baking dish and discard the rosemary. Place the steak directly on the grill or pan. Cook for about 4 minutes on both sides for medium-rare. Remove from the grill, cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
While the steak is cooking, melt the butter over a low heat with the rosemary and garlic. This will infuse the butter with the garlic and rosemary. Remove the garlic and rosemary and drizzle the butter over the cooked steak.
