Garlic Rosemary Steak

This steak is flavored with garlic and rosemary, then cooked and served in a tasty sherry cream sauce. Yum!

Steak is my absolute favorite meal on the planet. Whenever Pat wants to go out for a dressy date, I ALWAYS choose a good steak restaurant. Tender steak plus good red wine? There’s nothing better!

Now I have this one to make in the comfort of my own home (in the comfort of my own PJs). We both just love this Garlic Rosemary Steak with Sherry Cream Sauce, plus it’s made in under half and hour.

This steak is full-proof, totally delicious, and it will impress your guests (or your partner!). It’s like having a gourmet dinner at home!

Top Tips for this Steak recipe:

  • This recipe cooks the steaks to a perfect medium 140°F, so they’re still a little pink and plenty juicy.
  • Use New York strip steaks for this recipe; they’ll turn out moist and tender.
  • Steaks should rest for at least 5 minutes after cooking, before serving.
  • Don’t skimp on the sherry cream sauce while serving. It’s so good!

Sherry Cream Sauce

The sherry cream sauce is the highlight of this recipe! Sure, the garlic rosemary steak is delicious, but the addition of the creamy sauce adds SO much flavor.

It’s basically just a mix of cooking sherry and heavy cream, but it’s made in the same skillet as the steak. So you get all the butter and steak juices mixed in while it cooks.

It complements the garlic and rosemary perfectly. Yum!

How to Make Garlic Rosemary Steak

  1. Garlic Rosemary Rub: Combine garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper, then rub the mixture into the steak.
  2. Cook Steak: Heat butter and oil in a skillet until it boils, then cook the steaks for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  3. Add Sherry: Add in cooking sherry and cook steaks another 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Then remove the steaks from heat and let them rest for 5 minutes.

What to Serve with Steak

These juicy garlic rosemary steaks will be the star of your dinner, but it’s nice to have some veggies to go along with them.

My favorite thing to serve with them is simple mashed potatoes (mix them in with the sherry cream sauce on your plate, YUM!).

Then add either roasted garlic asparagus, sauteed leeks, creamy garlic mushrooms, Burgundy Mushrooms Recipe, or (for something a little cheesier), make cheesy roasted broccoli.

It’s the perfect meal!
