Print Recipe


  • 4 New York strip steaks at room temperature
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary minced (plus more for garnish)
  • 1 tablespoons sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra lite olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cooking sherry
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, rosemary, a pinch of black pepper, and sea salt. Rub each steak with the mixture and set aside.
  • Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. When bubbling, add steaks. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add cooking sherry to skillet and allow to cook another 2 1/2 minutes on each side. This will result in medium done steaks. Cook to desired well-ness.
  • Take steaks off of heat and set aside. Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.
  • In skillet, add the cream and allow to cook down (on simmer) for at least 5 minutes.
  • Garnish steaks with remaining rosemary and brushed with the cream sauce. Enjoy!



  • 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!
