I used a super simple marinade to make for this seared New York strip steak; fresh garlic, rosemary, sea salt and olive oil. That’s all you need to give your steak the most delicious flavor without it being overpowering.
You can use any kind of herbs and spices to marinade steak depending on your preference why not try bold spices such as cumin, paprika or red pepper flakes?
You could also stick for Mediterranean flavors and use lemon zest (don’t use juice or it’ll start cooking the steak), thyme, oregano or tarragon.
I like to marinate my steaks in ziplock bags, they don’t need long and it’s a great way to prep in advance!
How to Tell Your Steak is Done
The best way to tell that your steak is cooked to your liking is by using a meat thermometer. For rare is cook your steak to 130-135° F, medium-rare to 140° F, Medium 145° F.
These are the temperatures you should take your steak off of the heat and rest! It’s so important to rest your steaks so they’re extra juicy, tender and do not overcook.

Recipe Notes and Tips
- Marinate your steaks for at least 30 minutes so the flavors infuse the steak. You can also do this overnight or a few hours in advance if you need to.
- Bring your steaks out of the fridge 10-15 minutes before cooking to avoid the meat turning tough (cold steaks on a high heat will shrink and tighten up).
- Make sure to let your steaks rest after cooking so they’re juicy and tender.
- You can easily switch up the flavors by using different herbs and spices in the marinade.
- Serve with your favorite sides.
