Yield 4-6 1x


  • (4) ⅔-lb. New York strip steaks (~1-inch thick cut steaks)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (or coarse sea salt)
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (~half juicy lemon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • Butter, for serving


  1. First, remove the 4 steaks from their packaging season them with kosher salt on both sides. Then, place them into a gallon-size bag or glass container and set them aside.
  2. Next, prepare the steak marinade. Combine the rest of the ingredients together in a small bowl or Pyrex and whisk to combine.
  3. Then, pour the marinade on top of the steaks, remove as much air as possible and seal the bag. Squish the marinade around making sure it coats the steaks.
  4. Place steaks in the fridge and let marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours.
  5. When you’re ready to cook the steaks remove them from the fridge and bring them to room temperature. Rub your grill grates with olive oil and preheat it to 500ºF.
  6. Remove the steaks from the marinade and transfer them to the grill. Sear the steaks over direct heat for 2 minutes on each side to get those gorgeous grill marks. Then, turn the heat down to medium/high (~400ºF) and continue grilling for around 10-15 minutes*, flipping halfway through.
  7. For a medium* steak, cook until the internal temperature reaches 140ºF*. Then, remove from the heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Serve with butter and enjoy.

Tips & Notes

  • Cook time: cook time will vary depending on how thick cut your steaks are and how done you want the middle. Our steaks were around 1-inch thick and we cooked ours to medium.
  • Steak doneness: 135ºF – rare, 140ºF – medium/rare, 150ºF – medium, 165ºF – well-done.
