Grilled New York Strip Steaks 🔗

For the absolute best of a classic, everything-you-expect grilled steak experience, you simply can’t beat the New York strip steak. Remember that no matter how you’re cooking a steak, success starts at the supermarket. When shopping, look for steaks that have a nice, even marbling of fat throughout, avoiding those that have a thick ribbon of fat going down the center. Even if it feels like an extraneous step, don’t skip out on making the garlic butter and tying up a bundle of herbs to serve as your basting brush. Trust us, the results are more than worth the minimal time doing both will require. Both will boost the flavor of your steak like you wouldn’t believe.

Total: 50min


  • 4 (12-oz.) beef strip steaks (1 1/4- to 1 1/2-inch-thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 rosemary sprigs
  • 6 thyme sprigs
  • 3 sage sprigs
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic (2 garlic cloves)


  1. Preheat grill to high (450°F to 550°F). Place steaks on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let stand, covered, at room temperature 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, gather rosemary, thyme, and sage sprigs in a tight bundle, and tie stem ends with kitchen twine. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-low. Add garlic, and cook, stirring often, 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  3. Place steaks on oiled grates, and grill, uncovered, until grill marks appear, about 3 minutes. Turn steaks 45° to create diagonal grill marks. Grill, uncovered, until grill marks appear, about 3 minutes. Turn steaks over, and grill, uncovered, until a thermometer registers 140°F when inserted in thickest portion of steak, 5 to 6 minutes. Brush steaks often with garlic butter, using herb bundle as a brush.
  4. Transfer steaks to a cutting board or platter, and let rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Discard herb bundle.

A meat thermometer should read 130°F when the steaks are finished cooking; they should rest for 5 minutes before being served, lightly covered with foil. Grilling times vary depending on the thickness of the steak—9–12 minutes for a 1-inch steak and 12–14 minutes for a 112-inch steak.

Should I marinate NY strip steak?

For good reason, the New York strip is a butcher’s and the public’s favorite and frequently referred to as the “Ultimate Griller’s Steak.” The rich marbling of the strip steak will melt into the meat as it grills, producing an amazing steak dinner.

Should I marinate a New York strip before grilling?

Contrary to popular belief, marinating your meat is not a tenderizing method. Soaking your meat in acidic liquids does not tenderize the meat to any great degree. Marinating your meat is the only way to enhance flavor before grilling.
